Cockroaches Pest Control

Cockroach Control Sydney

It takes just one cockroach to trigger a full infestation. Cockroaches lay around one egg per day, especially after a meal, which means that an infestation may appear very fast. It’s important to prevent a cockroach infestation right away before they have a chance to multiply. At Eco Pest Control Sydney, we can help keep your cockroach problem under control.

How We Treat Cockroaches

We treat cockroaches by installing the right cockroach baiting systems and applying cockroach-killing spray treatments. The poison used to kill cockroaches will either prevent them from shedding or kill them instantly. The carrier cockroaches will bring the poison to the nest, and this will eliminate all the cockroaches within a matter of days.

Why Cockroaches Are Considered a Pest

Cockroaches are considered a pest because they damage your property and carry disease into your home. They disgorge part of the food that they eat and leave faeces all over the house – especially over your food. They carry germs and bacteria in their bodies and on their legs, which they leave on your food.

Common Species of Cockroaches in Sydney

Sydney has its fair share of cockroaches that are present throughout Australia. Here are the most common you will come across:

  • Brown-banded cockroach: They are pale brown and like to scurry through dry places. They have wings, so can fly if they feel threatened.

  • German cockroach: Light brown or beige, featuring two dark stripes behind the neck.
  • Native Australian Cockroach: A cockroach native to Australia. It’s black with yellow margins and trips.
