Cockroach Pest Control

Prompt Cockroach Pest Control

Cockroaches are one of the most common insects found in and around properties, typically in kitchens and general food handling areas, toilets, bathrooms, and laundries.

They can carry disease producing organism such as dysentery, diarrhoea and salmonella and can cause damage to electrical wiring and appliances.

Cockroaches are nocturnal and can usually be found around cupboard and draw hinges, cracks, crevices, under or behind large appliances such as dishwashers, in fridge seals and stored products and boxes.

They are scavengers and prefer to eat meats, starches, sugars, and fatty foods although they will eat other food sources including but not limited to glue, leather, soap, toothpaste, dead skin, hair and dead cockroaches.

Cockroach FAQ

No — there is no scientific evidence to suggest that any of these devices provide effective cockroach control.

Not necessarily.

Cockroaches do fly and if you see a single, larger cockroach, there is a good chance that it may come in from outside, typically through garage or patio doors and open windows.

If you have had a recent cockroach pest control treatment, the cockroach will likely come into contact with the residual chemical and be eliminated.

On the Gold Coast and Northern NSW, the small adult cockroaches are German Cockroaches.

They are light brown to tan, with two dark, almost parallel stripes located on their backs, just behind their heads, approximately 11 to 16mm in length.

German Cockroaches are one the most problematic species as they reproduce faster than any other residential cockroach, growing from egg to reproductive adult in under two months.
