Melbourne Cockroach Pest Control
Cockroaches are a common presence in Melbourne homes, from Belconnen to Majura. They are particularly fond of dark, warm, and humid environments, especially where food crumbs are present.
Some cockroaches choose to nest under appliances like fridges, in tight cracks between cabinets, or even within coffee machines. Simply swatting them when they scuttle across your floor at night is a short-term solution.
To truly address the issue, you need to call a professional who can identify the cockroach species and treat them at the source. Whether it’s for your existing property, a renovation, or a new home construction, call (03) 8580 7001 to speak to our experts and schedule a cockroach inspection to effectively eliminate them.
Melbourne Homes Are Susceptible to Cockroach Infestations
We are frequently called upon to treat homes in Melbourne for German and American cockroaches. These species were introduced to Australia and have since become common in Aussie households.
The American cockroach is larger and can easily fly in through open windows. They are attracted to warm appliances like fridge motors and hot water pipes. Large infestations emit a musty odor and leave traces of feces and brown egg cases. Each egg case can contain up to 16 eggs, leading to rapid infestation growth.
The German cockroach, smaller than the American variety, is more challenging to eradicate if left unchecked. This is because each egg capsule can contain between 30 and 48 eggs. Females are prolific breeders, capable of producing up to 20,000 offspring annually. German cockroaches can be found around sinks, dishwashers, bathroom cupboards, and crevices such as the undersides of drawers and behind skirting boards.
Spotting one German cockroach usually indicates the presence of many more.
Why Cockroaches Are a Concern for Commercial Establishments in Melbourne
We frequently provide cockroach treatments for office spaces, restaurants, and other businesses in Civic and surrounding areas of Melbourne. Kitchenettes and communal tea and coffee areas are particularly susceptible to infestations.
Crumbs from birthday cakes, biscuits stored in desk drawers, and improperly sealed food in kitchen cabinets can all attract cockroaches.
Cockroach infestations in your workplace can spread diseases to your employees and clients, negatively impact your brand, and deter customers. Don’t risk your reputation. Call (03) 8580 7001 to speak to our experts and schedule a cockroach inspection today.
How to control cockroaches
DIY treatments are generally ineffective against cockroaches due to their rapid breeding cycle, often requiring multiple treatments for a long-term solution. That’s why it’s crucial to call a professional who can target cockroaches at their hiding spots and address the next generation.
Here are some ways to prevent cockroach infestations:
- Avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink
- Dispose of cardboard boxes
- Clean up crumbs regularly
- Install fly screens on windows
- Seal cracks in your property
