Cockroach numbers have recently exploded in the southern states. It is reported Queensland will experience extraordinary large numbers in the next few months due to perfect breeding conditions with recent hot and humid weather. Along with spiders, cockroaches definitely top the ‘most hated’ list of the creepy crawlies that reside in and around our homes. Unfortunately, cockroach infestations can rapidly expand and only a professional pest control treatment by Sandgate Pest Control will be able to rid your house of these unwanted pests.
There are many ways households can assist with cockroach infestation numbers. Hygiene and appropriate storage of food and food waste is absolutely critical. Sandgate Pest Control recommends all foods including pet foods, must be in sealed containers. All benches and food preparation areas must be regularly and thoroughly cleaned, particularly areas between the kitchen counter top and appliances. Food scraps exposed on benches or in waste storage areas will also attract cockroaches. Ensuring appropriate food waste storage is essential in. Regular cleaning of the home including vacuuming carpets, furniture, curtains etc ensures all food deposits and cockroach eggs are removed.
The ‘hot spots’ for cockroaches is the roof void or sub floor of the building. Similarly, cracks and crevices in the bathroom, pantry and cupboards are common places our experienced pest management technicians treat. Moisture is another attractant for cockroaches. Be sure to check and fix any plumbing problems, broken roof tiles and check tap and sink areas for any areas which collect moisture.
