Amalgamated Pest Control has received a number of phone calls from Sydney’s Inner West lately to deal with some significant Cockroach problems. Virtually every week since the year started, we are being called to properties in the Inner West for German cockroach control.
One of our recent call outs saw our technician attending an apartment block in Five Dock. Upon discussing the problem areas with the client and conducting a site assessment on arrival, our technician discovered a number of cockroach hiding areas. He found a few German Cockroaches hiding in kitchen cupboards, under the sink and in the oven. These areas are often favoured by the German cockroach, as they prefer basically anywhere they can find food, dark hiding spaces and where there is water. This means that bathrooms, kitchens and laundries are usually infested first.
The biggest surprise to our customer came when our technician moved the fridge to see what was behind and under it. Our customer had no idea the extent of the problem in her unit, with the pictured mass of cockroaches hiding behind and under the fridge during the daylight hours. Surprisingly enough, it can get much worse than this picture.
In this case, our technician was able to successfully control the customers German Cockroach infestation with just one service, and provide the homeowner with our 12 month Service Warranty.
Our treatments focus on the areas where the pests live and breed, which allows us to give our customers our Guaranteed Gone promise – if they come back, so will we.
German cockroaches aren’t the only cockroach pest hiding in homes right now, and there are many other places in the home where different species of cockroach hide, live and breed. The majority rarely come to the attention of the occupants, until the population starts to get out of control.
Like the German cockroach, American Cockroaches and Australian Cockroaches (both very common pests) are nocturnal. So if you’re seeing a few, especially during daylight hours, there’s bound to be many more. In other words, by the time you see the cockroaches, there could be hundreds in your home!
Amalgamated Pest Control’s Cockroach Treatments cover all species of cockroach for just one, single price. You won’t pay more for German Cockroaches, or American, or Australian, and our 12 month Service Warranty covers all species of Cockroach.
Hot Tips to keep cockroaches away:
- Ensure that all food scraps/crumbs are cleaned up immediately and surfaces are left clean.
- Check your home garbage bin has a tightly fitted lid that doesn’t let pests in.
- Look inside your kitchen cupboards, if you see cracks, gaps or crevices seal them with an appropriate sealer – German Cockroaches live within these cracks and crevices.
- Try not to have any excess water sources available such as leaking taps, overflows etc. Cockroaches can survive a long time without food, but only days without water.
