As Canberra’s leading cockroach and pest control service provider, we take care of any pest infestation or problems affecting your home or business.
Canberra’s dry climate and leafy surroundings are an ideal breeding ground for cockroaches and other pests. Our professionally trained cockroach and pest technicians provide safe and effective treatments targeting affected areas of your property.
We offer preventative cockroach inspections along with a selection of cockroach management solutions to suit your home or business.
Our service areas include, but are not limited to, the following suburbs:
Cockroaches are found in homes across Canberra, from Belconnen to Majura. They love dark, warm, humid environments, especially where there’s a crumb or two.
Some cockroaches decide to nest under the fridge, in tight cracks between cabinets or even in coffee machines. So, when a cockroach scampers across the floor in the middle of the night, swatting it will only ever be a short term fix.
You need to call a professional to identify the cockroach and treat them at the source.
Whether it’s for your existing property, renovation or building a new home, call (02) 6147 2613. Speak to our experts and book a cockroach inspection to treat them for good.
Canberra homes are prone to cockroach infestations
We often get called to treat homes in Canberra for German and American cockroaches. These species were introduced to Australia and have been in Aussie homes ever since.
The American cockroach is bigger and can easily fly in through an open window. They’re attracted to warm appliances like the fridge motor and hot water pipes. Large numbers give off a musty smell and leave traces of faeces and brown egg cases. Each egg case can hold up to 16 eggs, so they quickly reach infestation proportions.
The German cockroach is smaller than the American and harder to eradicate if left too long. That’s because each egg capsule can contain between 30 and 48 eggs. Females are such prolific breeders they can produce up to 20,000 young each year. German cockroaches can be found around sinks, dishwashers, bathroom cupboards and crevices such as the underside of drawers and behind skirting boards.
If you see one German cockroach, there are plenty more.
Why cockroaches are a nuisance for commercial premises in Canberra
We often treat office spaces, restaurants and other locations for cockroaches in Civic and surrounding suburbs. Kitchenettes and communal tea and coffee areas are particularly prone to infestations.
Birthday cake crumbs, biscuits left in desk drawers and food not sealed properly in kitchen cabinets all attract cockroaches.
Cockroach infestations in your workplace can spread diseases to your employees and clients. Cockroaches can also turn away customers and affect your brand. Don’t risk your reputation. Call (02) 6147 2613. Speak to our experts and book a cockroach inspection today.
DIY treatments won’t work against cockroaches. Their breeding cycle is so rapid, that they usually require multiple treatments for a long term solution. That’s why you need to call a professional to target the cockroaches where they’re hiding and the next generation.

Flick is the best pest control service I’ve ever used. Marc O’Donnell came again today, having been here 2 years ago... for the same service. He was on time, extremely friendly and helpful, and did a thorough job inspecting the house. He also applied long-acting pesticide inside and out. He was the first of the inspectors to recommend the treatment in 2020. The treatment has been very effective controlling insects and spiders until the next inspection. Marc’s reports are professional with practical recommendations for termite prevention. I can highly recommend the service and have been very happy with the results.read more

Absolutely awesome service. Thank you Martin Kennedy for doing our yearly termite inspection. Not only did he check... everything he also answered my questions in regards to treated fence and how they can get into your house. A very knowledgeable technician who confirmed what I knew was correct. We have annual inspections for our termite barrier which was installed when the house was built. I strongly encourage people to get Flick out to do an inspection on the property before you buy. Don’t rely on your usual pest inspection. Martin would be the ideal person to do an inspection before you buy. His knowledge is outstanding. Thank you Martin.read more
Both Marc and Michael were on time and extensively inspected the roof void and underfloor of our property to find the... source of our insect infestation. They identified where specific activity had occurred and recommendations for future-proofing the property. The nature of our build was such that they could not directly remove the source but at least we now know where the problem lies! They were both very professional, informative and helpful. We would use Flick and these two technicians again. Also, the receptionist when I booked the call was very helpful and understanding and provided us with an early next-day callout (as well as a very specific time!), which was very much appreciated.read more
