Cockroaches

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are one of the most mind-numbing pests that keep the residents of the Sunshine Coast on their toes. Still, they are an essential part of the ecosystem for three reasons: Helps in pollination with plant reproduction, food-source to some animals, and breaks down waste from other animals thereby increasing nitrogen consistency to the soil.

Cockroaches are one of the oldest insects in the world. So, like every organism, they serve a purpose and contribute to Earth’s ecosystem. But, you won’t want them as your pets. Luckily, 99.7% of cockroaches stay away from human beings and their property. So, eradicating them doesn’t mean you are unbalancing Earth’s ecosystem.

Potential Health Risks Of Cockroach Infestation

Cockroaches carry and spread various bacteria and germs that trigger allergies, fever, and asthma. When they travel throughout your home, they transmit urine, faeces, regurgitated saliva, and digestive fluids to humans. It can cause many health issues, including E. coli, salmonella, typhoid, urinary tract infections, digestive problems, and sepsis.

Types Of Cockroaches

In Australia, there are approximately 450 species of cockroaches. The American Cockroach and the German Cockroach are the most common. The Oriental Cockroach, the Brown Banded Cockroach, and the Smoky Brown Cockroach are the less common ones. You can hire our pest control services and get rid of them.

Why German Cockroaches Are A Threat

It’s hard to get rid of the German Cockroaches (Blattella germanica). Sunshine Pest’s experts can eradicate other species right after one visit. German Cockroaches need two treatments as there are no insecticides that can infiltrate the egg casings of German Cockroaches. So, if any eggs are left after the first pest control treatment, they will hatch soon.

Bug Bombs Don’t Work On Home German Cockroaches

German Cockroaches hide from the gas emitting from bug bombs. They are nocturnal and hide wherever they can. German Cockroaches build nests in cracks, kitchen sink, and on the underside of surfaces and cabinets. The cockroaches don’t gather in your kitchen floor or benchtops where the bug bomb gas lands. Gas bombs can’t reach hard-to-reach places.

Other Disadvantages Of Cockroach Bombs

Apart from being ineffective for German Cockroaches, bug bombs have many other drawbacks as well. It suffocates the surroundings and leaves a toxic residue on the floors and surfaces. Even your pets can suffer from such hazardous gas.

We often hear from our clients that they have already invested $30 – $40 on cockroach bombs only to see they are still dwelling on their homes.
