COCKROACHES

Cockroaches are often associated with a poor housekeeping regime. While this can be the case, often cockroaches are introduced to houses and kitchens by being carried as live individuals or egg casings attached to food, packaging and the likes.

There are over 400 species of cockroaches found in Australia. And they carry many health risks. These risks are associated with their preferred harbourages that have a preferred humidity, temperature and food source. It is these areas that bring them into contact and also allow them to spread disease organisms such as Salmonella and organisms associated with, Dysentery, Typhoid, Hepatitis and Tuberculosis. Cockroach infestations are normally accompanied by a foul odour caused by their body secretions. They also are a contributor to asthma attacks, due to the dust from the moulted skins and droppings.

When a cockroach infestation is recognised a professional treatment will be needed as they can breed rapidly and soon infest other areas. If you are seeing them during the day or turning the lights on at night to see them scuttle away, chances are they have already become a problem.
