Cockroach Removal Service in Sydney

One of the most common household pests encountered in Sydney, cockroaches are widely despised for their swift movements, sheer stealth and ability to spread disease. Plus, they’re remarkably tough – they have been known to survive for up to a month without food, and can stay active on very limited resources. Creepy.

How do I recognise a cockroach infestation?

These pesky creatures are nocturnal, and usually become active after dark: they tend to hide in small crevices or gaps, and are incredibly adaptable when it comes to their environment.

They are also attracted to food, and will eat anything, from paper and packaging, to fabrics and animal matter. As nocturnal creatures, they will usually head out on the hunt for food after dark, making it even harder for you to identify an infestation.

If you cannot spot cockroaches themselves, here are a few things to look out for:

  • Droppings: they leave a dust of black droppings 1mm wide
  • Smear marks: these will appear on wall to floor junctions or horizontal surfaces, particularly if there is an abundance of water.
  • Shed skin: they shed their skin around five to eight times
  • Damage to items (even books or leather)
  • An unusual, musty odour

How do I recognise a cockroach infestation?

Well, yes. They’re responsible for the transmission of human disease (such as salmonella), as they live and breed in areas in which food is prepared – it is therefore crucial that your home or workplace is free from cockroach infestation, as they are renowned for spreading disease. Cockroaches have been known to cause allergic reactions, dysentery and asthma in some.
