Cockroach Control Services

In this section we have attempted to not get too technical with our descriptions as we feel that the average person is not interested in scientific jargon.

Most people just want to know what they are and how to get rid of them. So here we go:

The Australian Cockroach

The Australian Cockroach is the one that usually flies into your face when you walk out the back door. Around 5cm long when fully mature and is very common around Australia.

Australian Cockroaches like to breed in bark and leaf mulch and in palm trees. So if you have lots of this, you probably have lots these.

The American Cockroach

Both of these fly and are accountable for most of cockroaches you see. As far as getting rid of them goes, good luck.

Even if you removed all of the breeding areas mentioned above they will still fly in from next door. Don’t worry, there is still hope.

High quality residual sprays and powders that we use on surfaces are the only option you have.

They have to land at some point and when they do they will walk over the spray or powder and ‘that’s all she wrote’. So putting it into a nutshell we can rid you of the ones that have set up a home in your roof void and to a degree in your garden but we can’t stop them flying into your yard.

But at least when they do and when they land on a treated area, the products will do their thing. Just remember, because you have these doesn’t mean that you are an unclean person but hygiene is a factor.

There is a cockroach however that is attracted by poor cleanliness:

The German Cockroach

This one doesn’t fly; just breeds like crazy when left untreated. When fully grown The German Cockroach is about 2cm long.

If you are the type of person that leaves food scraps and dirty dishes out most nights and you have a German cockroach problem already, then you will just have a bigger one regardless of how many tins of fly spray or surface spray you own.

They don’t move much except when foraging for food so while they are sitting all together in a tiny nook in your kitchen they are just doing what comes naturally. Over and over and over again before too long they will infest every electrical appliance including the microwave, knife block, door hinges, computer, television and anywhere else where it is dark or warm or both.

We use special gel bait which has been designed to ‘break the breeding cycle’. Something you must understand though is it is not a case of get the pest controller to get rid of these guys whilst we live the same way. You must make an effort to make sure that your levels of cleanliness improves. Now in saying that, you might be in the small percentage of people that have a German cockroach problem but are very clean and tidy.

This can and does happen as they may have hitched a ride in the bottom of a cardboard food box hiding in the corrugations. If so, don’t despair. The gel will do the trick. The process once the bait has been applied can take up to a month to allow for any eggs to hatch and the baby ones to find the bait or consume other dead cockroaches who already have the bait inside them. We can give you advice on any measures that we feel you should take to reduce the possibility of re-infestation.

The Brown Banded CockroachThe Brown Banded Cockroach

This bloke is prevalent through Top End Homes and businesses. We can take care of this cockroach with our standard treatment for you and in some cases without spraying. He is a prolific breeder and you will not get rid of him yourself with conventional surface sprays. He is similar to the German Cockroach except he tends to travel throughout the house and not just in the kitchen.

There are numerous other species of cockroaches but we felt that these were the most likely ones that you were going to encounter.
