Darwin Cockroach Pest Control

Cockroaches are found in homes across Darwin, from Palmerston to Nightcliff. They love dark, warm, humid environments, especially where there’s a crumb or two.

Some cockroaches decide to nest under the fridge, in a tight crack 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 (08) 8911 0729. Speak to our experts and book a cockroach inspection to treat them for good.

Darwin is prone to cockroach infestations

We often get called to treat homes in Darwin 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.

Are cockroaches dangerous?

Cockroaches can carry viruses, parasite eggs and spread bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella. Salmonella can cause diseases such as gastroenteritis, dysentery and hepatitis. Cockies can trigger allergies and be a problem for asthmatics, which is why they need to be prevented and treated.

Darwin Technician Spraying for Cockroaches

How can cockroaches be controlled?

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.

There are some ways to prevent cockroach infestation

  • Don’t leave dirty dishes in the sink
  • Throw out cardboard boxes
  • Sweep up crumbs
  • Install fly screens on windows
  • Seal up cracks

If you suspect you have cockroaches, don’t try to get rid of them yourself. Call (08) 8911 0729 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.

After an initial bad start ( I got an inspection and treatment special just over month ago, which the tech finished... everything in just over 1/2 hr and was not thorough at all and seemed more interested in leaving as quick as he could. Still had cockroaches after a month ) Kris the new tech was very friendly and professional. He thoroughly reapplied in all the areas that was missed and did extra applications around the house. Obviously this was done at no charge and done with no questions asked by the office staff. This review is solely on the second visit!read more
