There are several species of cockroach that invade houses and other heated buildings. The more common cockroach in Taranaki is the German cockroach (pictured opposite).
Because the nature of these species are found in tropical regions, cockroaches are mainly found in the north island or in constantly heated buildings. They are secretive insects and only emerge from cracks and crevices at night to feed. They usually harbour themselves inside warm appliances, for example: behind fridges, under toasters, behind microwaves etc...
Silverfish prefer dark damp places and a found in basements or places where there is little air circulation. They can be found in bathrooms and concealed places inside homes. Control measures are to improve circulation and ventilation, or use fan heaters in the cool damp rooms.
