Cockroach Exterminator Sydney
Cockroach Pest Control - one of the most common pests in households and businesses today, and they've been in existence for centuries!
There are over 400 types of cockroaches in Australia, but generally, there are only about six that present themselves as a serious pest. Of those six, three primary species are prevalent in and around most areas, known as Australian, American and German cockroaches.
The larger Australian and American species usually fly in from outside. They can be found in basements, garages, common entryways, bathrooms, laundry and even the kitchen to search for water or food. But, they prefer to breed outside and live on trees.
The smaller German variety generally lives in small cracks and holes in your kitchen walls and floor. They are most often found behind a fridge, under the kettle, in cupboards or scurrying through to the bathroom.
Cockroach Pest Control
They tend to prefer conditions similar to those that humans live in, like a nice warm environment and a place where there is easy access to food and water. Cockroaches can contaminate food preparation areas, including the food itself and the utensils. Their droppings, vomit, and skin can leave bacteria which can then trigger allergy attacks. Also, wherever an infestation of cockroaches occurs, it's usually followed by a foul odour, caused by their bodily secretions.
Cockroaches have evolved to become the most versatile pests around the world. Also, a cockroach can live up to one month without eating any food and two weeks without water, but if they can make your home theirs, they will have a steady supply of all the food and water they need.

Australian, American and German Cockroach Pest Control
Find, Treat, And Eradicate Today!
We treat cockroaches using bait, and our treatment usually consists of a combination of the following:
Dust - this product penetrates all cracks and crevices hosing the cockroaches out of their living areas where they then die.
Spray - we treat the interior of your home or building using a cockroach non-repellent spray to decrease their numbers.
Gel - this gel is moist and attracts cockroaches, the ingredients contain carbohydrates and proteins which their diets need. Once they have fed on the gel baits, they die.
We apply the bait in strategic locations, including behind the fridge, cupboards, door frames, hinges, window sills and even under the kettle!
**Please remember to keep your kitchen area clean and free from open food scraps to reduce the chance of cockroaches returning. Try to declutter all the rooms to help stop a reinfestation.**
**Our baits are effective, but please take note of the point above.
