Living in this humid climate, there would be many of us who’ve witnessed a cockroach darting from the corner of your eye out of nowhere. Cockroach pest control can be a difficult one to keep up with in our warm Queensland climate. There’s something about them that make us reach immediately for the bug spray. Big or small, there’s no doubt cockroaches are among the most disliked bugs. They’re quick, they can spread disease, contaminate our food, can cause allergic or asthmatic reactions and worst of all, they’re usually not alone.

Most cockroaches will find a place to live outdoors and both male and female cockroaches can fly. Females will lay an egg capsule which contains around 16 eggs. When cockroaches enter homes, it is usually to find water or food. They can easily pass under doors, in through windows and garages and will often go to bathrooms, kitchens and laundries.

Cockroaches spread disease, as they pick up germs on their legs and bodies. As they crawl through our homes, they can transfer these germs to our food or food preparation surfaces. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), they are suspected carriers of the organisms that can cause diarrhoea, leprosy, plague, typhoid fever, dysentery, cholera, and viral diseases such as poliomyelitis. Safeguard highly recommend you keep you cockroach pest control up to date to protect your family from these terrible illnesses.

In order to keep your cockroach pest control to the minimum recommended cycles, it is imperative to keep areas free from food. This means you need to clear under appliances, in sink drains, in kitchen cabinets and your floors. They eat bread crumbs, any scraps or spilled food they find and will also eat pet food that is left out. Cockroaches produce an “aggregation pheromone.” The odour of this chemical will cause the cockroaches to stay together in groups; then as the population starts to grow, people with sensitive noses may begin to notice this musty smell.

Safeguard encourage you to help reduce the cockroach population by clearing all food scraps and unnecessary water sources, sealing all openings and vacuuming floor surfaces. To effectively manage a serious cockroach infestation, Safeguard will correctly identify and treat your infestation with adequate cockroach pest control measures. Please contact a pest control professional today if you think there is an infestation in your home.
