Recognized and Reliable Roaches Control Treatment in Melbourne

Cockroaches are omnivorous, that is, they feed on both plant and animal matter. But apart from the forage for food, they still roam around the houses spreading germs and diseases. Although they prefer warm places with easy access to food (such as inhabited homes, food companies or food stores), they settle down in any place or environment, including businesses that have nothing to do with the food sector.

Cockroaches are a serious pest to be concerned about, as they are carriers and transmitters of hundreds of diseases that can be fatal to most human beings and pets, especially in children and the elderly whose health is more delicate. The fact that they multiply in great numbers also works in their favour, establishing a huge colony in a very short time, which makes their eradication very difficult once they have taken over the environment.

In the market, there are wide varieties of products that you can use to eliminate cockroaches. But, not all of them work. Some are not completely effective, whereas, others can cause harm to pets and people. So, your attempt to eliminate cockroaches on your own might end up triggering more cockroach infestation.

What are the Signs of Cockroach Infestation?

Killing one or two cockroaches when you see them is useless if you have an infestation. Whether it is an infestation or not, with the below-mentioned signs you will understand. In case it is an invasion, it is advisable to hire a pest control company immediately to prevent its multiplication.

  • Your Residential Area is Prone to Pest Invasion: First of all, it is important to know if you are in an area where the presence of these bugs is common. Although cockroaches live in all parts of the world, some areas are friendlier to them than others. If you live in a hot region prone to insect invasion, and you know that some neighbours have had a problem with roaches, or if you have dealt with roaches yourself in the past, it is important to be cautious.
  • Cockroach droppings are visible: If your house is affected by cockroaches, the first clue they leave is their droppings. These can look like tiny peppercorns, coffee pinches, or even tiny black cylinders, depending on the size and type of the roach. They will be most obvious and common in areas that roaches frequent the most, such as dark corners and small crevices. The more faeces you find, the bigger colony of cockroaches you will be dealing with.
  • Cockroach eggshell in your home: Eggshells are another clue that alerts you of a pest. When a cockroach lays eggs, it will produce a single eggshell that can contain 20 to 50 eggs inside. These eggs tend to be long, light brown, and hollow inside. They are a very clear sign of an infestation.
  • Cockroaches give off a peculiar smell: Some roaches give off a distinctive odour that is both oily and musky. Although an individual insect may not smell strong enough for you to notice, many insects will create a distinctly unpleasant odour that will let you know about roaches invasion.

Why is it Necessary to Exterminate Cockroaches?

  • The health risk associated with the presence of cockroaches in our homes is an alarming issue that should be of priority concern to us. Their droppings, traces of saliva or simple contact through places where they have passed can infect us with diseases and cause serious allergies and asthma.
  • Some of the diseases that cockroaches can transmit to us are salmonellosis, typhoid fever, dysentery, hepatitis, tuberculosis, eczema, parasitic and fungal diseases, as well as gastroenteritis. In other words, they spread maladies that can even compromise our lives.
  • In the event that we have placed a trap with chemical components or other types of poisons, including the typical insecticides, our pets could end up being poisoned. In addition, let's not forget that cockroaches are characterized by being authentic survivors and create resistance to chemical products, which is often not effective.
  • Cockroaches desperately search for food and thus they crawl all over the place spoiling all kinds of food. Basically, if we suffer a roach infestation, they will attack our pantry, going to kitchens and other parts of the house where there is food and infecting them.
  • Likewise, cockroaches can get into the machinery of large household appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, etc. They do it in search of food and can end up electrocuted or trapped, producing bad odours and sources of contamination that must be eliminated.

  • Before re-entering the house, open the windows for a couple of hours so that it is well ventilated.

Tips to Prevent Cockroach Infestation:

The below-mentioned steps can assist you to avoid roaches invasion but they are not remedies to terminate cockroaches.

  • It is essential to have good order and hygiene in your home to avoid cockroaches permanently. It is recommended that you vacuum frequently through those dark areas where cockroaches might get comfortable such as under sofas, the gaps between cabinets or tables, the wall, etc. It is also important to vacuum rugs and cushions.
  • Sealing all the gaps that may remain between the bathtub and the wall, sinks or showers.
  • Another factor that can attract them is humidity. If you keep both bathrooms and kitchens dry you will avoid the risk.
  • The dishes accumulated in the sink are another risk factor since they have food debris that can attract them. Avoid leaving them too long before scrubbing them.
  • Aromatic herbs are a natural way to eliminate cockroaches. Laurel is a simple remedy to end them. They dislike their smell so they will move away instantly. You should place the crushed or chopped laurel in those areas where you suspect that cockroaches may settle. Catnip is another trick to kill them.
