    Cockroach Pest Control Melbourne

    Such is their ability to survive even the most extreme conditions, it’s often joked that cockroaches will ‘inherit the Earth’ should the human race destroy itself. This insect is one of the most common indoor pests as they prefer the warmer conditions found within such dwellings. A cockroach infestation can appear quickly and will usually require the services of a licensed pest control company. We offer cockroach control solutions that are effective, affordable and most notably, safe to you, your family and any pets. We also offer cockroach control to the commercial and industrial sectors.

    The most commonly encountered species in Melbourne and Regional Victoria are the German, American and Oriental cockroaches.

    The German cockroach is the scourge of the Melbourne hospitality scene. Call us before a few become a thousand.

    What does a cockroach look like?

    • Oval shaped and flat body;
    • 6 legs;
    • Long antennae;
    • Winged; &
    • Rapid movement.

    The mere presence of this pest leads to shrieks of terror and the search for the nearest chair to stand on. This fear we’ve developed however, is well founded. Research shows that roaches harbour viruses, including polio.

    Cockroaches Spread Disease:

    • Salmonella – commonly referred to as food poisoning;
    • Staphylococcus – commonly referred to as golden staph, which is an infection known to cause death; &
    • Streptococcus – an infection that causes sore throats, skin conditions, fevers and even toxic shock syndrome in extreme cases.

    These insidious creatures are in constant search for food, usually at night. As such, they regularly scurry across food preparation and food service areas. They leave behind a trail that attracts others as well as potential disease carrying vomit and fecal matter. The failure to properly clean bench tops, cutlery and cooking utensils only contributes to the spread of disease.

    A female lays anywhere between 10 and 40 eggs at a time. The lifespan of a cockroach in suitable conditions is usually 12 months. Because they are nocturnal, you may not be aware of their presence.

    How to prevent a cockroach infestation:

    A vigilant cleaning policy, particularly around food storage and food preparation areas is a great infestation prevention measure. Other steps you can take to eliminate the likelihood of these unwanted guests are to block entry points, such as cracks in walls and windows. Dripping taps and other water leaks should also be repaired. If you employ these measures will you go a long way to ensuring your home is not only cockroach free but pest free entirely.
