Cockroaches are gross! What else is there to say?

They make you feel uncomfortable in your home, whether you see a single one or know you have a cockroach infestation on your hands. Sharing is caring, but you certainly don’t need to share your space with cockroaches.

Cost Of Our Cockroach Removal Treatments

The cost of your treatment will depend on which option you choose to take control of your cockroach infestation and the size of your home.

Not everyone knows the accurate dimensions of their home so our team will ask how many bedrooms, offices, and media rooms your home has, as well as if it is high set or low set.

We use this information to get a reasonable idea of how long the treatment will take, which treatment option is the best option for your situation, and the cost.

Our Cockroach Control Process

Our cockroach control treatments involve the following:

Our team of pest technicians will conduct an inspection of the common harbourage points to identify what type of cockroach you’re dealing with and where they are. These common harbourage points include the kitchen, bathroom, and any other areas that you’ve seen signs of cockroaches.

Once common harbourage points have been fully inspected, our pest technicians will continue with the rest of your home. We look out for the following key signs of cockroaches:

  • Faecal staining
  • Faecal matter
  • Egg casings
  • Deceased bodies
  • Live cockroaches
  • Gnawed food matter (e.g. fruits and bread, although not restricted to this)
  • If the infestation is large enough they often produce a smell as well.

Cockroach Treatment

Once our team has completed an inspection and harbourage points have been located, we begin our treatment. Our pest technicians use different products in different areas of your home to provide the most effective treatment.

If the area is non-accessible (e.g. below the kitchen cabinetry) we use repellant dust is that provides an effective ‘flushing’ effect. For treatment to the underside of basins, hinges, around appliances, and more, a non-repellent aerosol is most effective to allow the product to transfer throughout the cockroach colony.

Lastly, our pest technicians will conduct a perimeter treatment inside and outside of your home and around the skirting boards to prevent further cockroach infestations.

What products do you use to control cockroaches?

The products we use to effectively control cockroaches depend on the species of cockroach identified during your inspection.

Intrusive cockroach species (e.g. German cockroaches) are more difficult to treat and require a multi-stage process to gain control of the colony. For these species, it’s best to use a combination of non-repellent insecticides and cockroach attractant gels to provide the most effective control internally and externally.

For less intrusive cockroach species (e.g. American cockroaches), we use both repellent and non-repellent products:

  • Repellent dust used in the cavity below cabinetry
  • Non-repellent aerosols around plumbing fittings, hinges, drains (situation-dependent), around appliances, and other potential entry points.

The size of your cockroach infestation dictates whether a non-repellent or repellent insecticide is to be applied to the internal perimeter of your home, and a non-repellent insecticide applied externally.

Why Are Cockroaches Such a Problem?

Cockroaches are extremely versatile and adaptive insects that are difficult to remove from your home on your own. We deeply appreciate the frustration and discomfort you feel when you discover you are sharing your home with cockroaches.

Cockroaches are an offensive pest to have in your home because:

  • Cockroaches live their lives in close proximity to you when they are in your home. They often carry human diseases on their bodies which can be transferred to your home.
  • Over 40 species of bacteria harmful to humans have been found in cockroaches’ digestive tracts. This includes species of worm parasites, viruses, and protozoa.
  • Cockroaches’ mouths are incredibly strong and can chew through a number of common items found in the home.
  • Cockroaches populate around food sources and can be found in the kitchen where you store food and prepare meals.
  • Cockroaches contaminate food and utensils with droppings, skins, egg cases, and vomit.
  • An unpleasant smell follows cockroach infestations due to their excrement and secretions.
  • Some people will have allergic reactions to cockroaches, and in some cases, an asthma attack can be triggered.
  • There have been cases where cockroaches target humans directly as a food source — though this is very uncommon.
  • Cockroaches are incredibly adaptive and have built a resistance to most over-the-counter insect repellents, which makes these products ineffective.
