What are cockroaches?
Cockroaches are one of the most common pests found in homes & commercial properties, especially food handling premises. They are probably the most despised and widespread pests known.
They are a high-risk pest to have in your home & business as they can cause diseases such as salmonella and gastroenteritis and their droppings have been linked to childhood asthma.
Apart from the health risks, cockroaches to many homeowners are disturbing their sight and the obnoxious odour they produce can contaminate nearby food and belongings.
Cockroaches breed rapidly and are resilient. A quick response is essential to prevent cockroaches in your home or spreading to your neighbours.
What cockroach is this?
There are three common species mainly found in homes
German cockroach – light Brown in colour with 2 dark stripes on thorax. Adults are about 1/2 to 5/8-inch long and have wings, but rarely fly. It prefers moist environments such as kitchen cabinets and bathroom.
Oriental cockroach – Dark brown to black in colour. 1 to 1-1/4-inch long and have non-functional wings incapable of flight. Females are about 1-1/4-inch long, broad and have only little pads for wings. It prefers cool, damp environments like drains, sewers and crawl spaces.
American cockroach – Reddish brown in colour and has a pale yellow area around the perimeter of the pronotum. These cockroaches tend to be found in dark, undisturbed areas that are high in humidity.
Other types of cockroaches:
Australian Cockroach – Dark reddish brown in colour with a yellow border on the area behind the head. They have light markings on the thorax and wings that cover the abdomen. They range from 30-35 mm in length and tend to be found in dark areas that are high in humidity
Brown Banded Cockroach– Tan to light brown and has two light-coloured bands across the wings and abdomen. They are the smaller side of cockroaches ranging from 10-14 mm & they tend not to be found in the daytime, since they avoid light.

Cockroach pest control in Sydney
Seeing live cockroaches – 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 1 mm wide and of varying lengths.
Odour – established cockroach infestations produce an unpleasant, musty smell.
Damage – cockroaches will attack organic goods including leather and books.
The Treatment for German cockroaches is different than the treatment for large cockroaches.
We use a gel & non-repellent spray to eradicate German cockroaches. The German cockroaches feed from the gel/paste then carry it back with them to their nests and passing it onto each other during their cleansing process. (cockroaches lick themselves clean)
Eradicating standard cockroaches is completed by using a spray to the internal and external areas & the application of powder/dust to the roof cavity and sub floor area.
