Cockroaches are one of the oldest pests known to mankind. Yet, here they are thousands of years later, lurking in our kitchens and bathrooms and giving us headaches. But what makes these almond-smelling bugs to keep coming back into our homes? Well, it’s simple. They offer the perfect balance between humidity, temperature, and tasty food that roaches need to thrive. Cockroach control can easily solve your problem.
Once they move into a cosy spot, they will multiply by the hundreds. And whether you’re facing an Australian, American, or a German cockroach, they all have one very dangerous thing in common – they carry an astronomical number of diseases. Hire our cockroach exterminators in Sydney to eliminate the infestation before the bugs have the chance to do any harm.
On the day of your appointment, a seasoned pest controller will arrive to inspect your home or place of business for any signs of the six-legged intruders.
Once the nests and all entry points are located and the cockroach species is identified, the exterminator will next decide on how to best dispose of the pests.
The specialist will use strong powder- (not applied in restaurants) and spray-based insecticides to treat the infested areas in your property. These products have a long residual effect, meaning that they will protect your property from further cockroach invasions for a long time afterwards.
The pest technician can also use a special gel bait.
IMPORTANT: If you are dealing with small (up to 2 cm long) roaches that almost never seem to leave the kitchen, then you have German cockroaches. These are the most common and difficult species to deal with, and their full extermination could take about 3 weeks.
Upon request, the cockroach exterminator in Sydney can come back at a later time to check if the treatment was successful.
Have in mind, that the extermination period is about 3-4 weeks. If you see cockroaches in your home in this duration it's mean that the treatment work. If your service includes using baits, then the cockroaches who eat the bait will die soon. And as cockroaches eat each other, the poison will then transferred to the next cockroach, thus exterminating up to 40 cockroaches.
Now that the cockroaches have vanished, the professional can give you some useful tips on how to proof your property in order to prevent future infestations.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why have cockroaches taken over my property?
While quite uncommon, this phenomenon is not unheard of. Roaches will usually only resort to biting people if they have no other available source of food. Some species, however, tend to inflict bites much more often, which is the case with the widespread German cockroach.
What are the eating habits of roaches?
These agile insects are content with eating pretty much anything. And we do mean anything – leather, soap, glue, human hair, sugar, cardboard, and rotten wood are but a small fraction of their weird daily menu. When the food gets scarce, they will even resort to cannibalism!
How long can cockroaches survive?
Cockroaches are pretty resilient creatures. They can live for up to a month without ingesting any food. They can even survive for an entire week without a head! The only thing that will get them in the end is the lack of water – surprisingly, cockroaches need their head to drink.
What diseases can the insects spread?
Roaches carry many diseases, including staphylococcus, streptococcus, and salmonella. Their faecal matter and shed skin can also get inhaled, causing asthma and respiratory infections. Even so much as a bite from them can cause the skin to swell or become infected.
How should I prepare for the cockroach control in Sydney?
Please remove all pets (fish included) before the start of the treatment. You will also need to hoover all cockroach-claimed areas in your property. Upon service completion, the service technician will kindly ask you to leave the premises for about two hours to allow the insecticides to settle and do their magic. Finally, do not clean the treated areas for at least 4 days.
