Cockroach Control – Shoalhaven
German Cockroaches tend to be an all year round pest in Australia. Due to the habitat they prefer to live in, your home.
When German Cockroaches get into your home they’ll tend to firstly start to live inside your kitchen. In your kitchen is the obvious starting point for infestation.
There’s plenty of food. No matter how clean you keep your kitchen, there will always be enough food sources to support a population of these pests.
After a period of time, cockroaches will find their way to the bathroom. There may not be as much human food here, but there is plenty of water.
Cockroaches will eat anything so they’ll find something to eat in your bathroom also. Wherever there’s food and water that will be an ideal place for these pests to live and breed.
Once the population becomes large enough they will start to infest your lounge room, living room, bedrooms and any are of the home they can find a dark crack or crevice to hide in.

- Ensure your rubbish is in tightly sealed garbage bins. Empty the inside garbage regularly.
- Clean regularly, wipe down surfaces to clean crumbs straight away. Deny them as much food as possible. Pay attention to ovens, stoves, benchtops, tables and chairs, sinks etc.
- Sweep and Mop the floor regularly. Remove sticky residues from the floor. Ensure that when you do mop the floor you do not leave any excess water. You need to deny them any water, as they can live for a long time without food but only several days without water.
