Though at a glance they may seem harmless, studies show that they can cause very serious illnesses. Samantha young a pest expert, talks about the illnesses they cause and how homeowners can stop them from encroaching into their homes. Cape Town South Africa, December 5th, 2018: Cockroaches are some of the most resilient insects which makes them hard to get rid of. With a short maturity period and an ability to survive in almost all climates around the world, their elimination can be a daunting task. With all the facts known about them, however, killing them has become quite necessary, especially in South Africa, where the environment is favorable for them to reproduce widely. It’s hard to imagine, but a few millennia’s ago, cockroaches were appreciated in South Africa especially by the Zulu people. They had grass bowls which they used for eating and for obvious reasons, they couldn’t use water to clean them; instead, they left them in the open for the roaches to eat the food particles in the crevices of the bowls. However, a flashback to today, a battle has been waged against them and most South Africans will kill them on site without thinking twice about it. The temperate climate found in the region provides an ideal breeding ground for cockroaches. According to Samantha Young, a pest expert in Cape Town, finding these cockroaches in clean homes is not uncommon. The German cockroach and the American species are the most common and can be found in most parts. She goes on to add that in the life of one female cockroach, which is about 6 months, hundreds upon hundreds of eggs can be laid. With each breeding cycle producing up to 48 eggs. “Cockroaches are a bit mysterious preferring to lurk in the dark and only coming out to eat when it’s dark”.

House painting issues such as cracking, flaking, and blistering, are responsible for the low prices buyers are willing to pay for homes in Johannesburg. Relatively new homes are now fetching lower prices or prolonged time in the market due to poor paint jobs. JOHANNESBURG, June 8th 2018 -Most properties listed on the market at present are fetching low prices than their worth because of their appearance. Although buyers are encouraged to look into the structural build of a house first, most seem to be put off by its outward appearance. The result is they end up skipping the property or quoting a lower price than expected. According to Gashwel Sibanda, a lead painter at SMG Painters Johannesburg, this is nothing new in the market. “Many homeowners in Johannesburg contact us for a fresh coat of paint on their homes just because they couldn’t find a buyer with the previous paint on. On a closer look, we always find that the previous paint job was shoddy and made the entire home look old and unworthy of an investment.” He goes on to advise that painting is critical in the appearance of a home, but it can only bring that aesthetic value when done the right way. Mr. Sibanda says that the most common house painting problems include cracking, blistering, flaking, sagging, and peeling. In damp areas, mildew can start growing on paint. Issues such as blistering and cracking occurs when the painter doesn’t sand down the place properly before applying a coat of paint. Peeling comes about when the painter applies paint on a dirty surface while sagging occurs when too much paint is applied in a specific region without evenly distributing it.
