Cockroaches

Cockroaches are one of Australia’s most common home invaders

Cockroaches can breed rapidly and are highly resilient. Most species are nocturnal and ground dwelling and are usually found hiding during the day in crevices, under bark, rocks or logs. Cockroaches may enter houses through sewer connections, under doors, around plumbing, air ducts or other openings in the home.

Most homeowners are unaware of cockroach infestations in their home and the health and safety risks associated with cockroach infestation such as allergies and asthma which can be triggered by cockroach allergens and the germs and bacteria they are known to spread.

Cockroaches can live without food for one month, but will only survive a week without water.

THE TYPICAL SIGNS OF A COCKROACH PROBLEM ARE:
 

  • Seeing live insects – cockroaches are nocturnal and hide during the day. You will most likely see them when turning on the light in the kitchen at night

  • Egg cases and cast skins – cockroaches shed their skin 5-8 times as they mature

  • Droppings – cockroaches leave a dust of black droppings less than 1mm wide and of varying lengths

  • Odor – established cockroach infestations produce an unpleasant, musty smell

  • Damage - cockroaches will attack organic goods including leather and books
