Pest Control Cockroaches

Cockroaches tend to occupy many types of homes, not just the older or dirtier. They live outside, in the streets. They can come into your home via a number of methods, including within carboard boxes, house cavities, visitor etc.  So they could quite easily appear in a new, clean home.

This is why we are one of the few Auckland pest control companies that can guarantee cockroach control.


Identify Cockroaches

Cockroaches can measure over 50 mm length, with hotter climate places  tending to be larger than those found in Auckland. Cockroaches have 6 legs, some have wings. Most cockroaches with wings are not particularly good at flying.

Recommendations to Prevent and Eliminate Cockroaches

Firstly cut off the food and water supply. Repair leaky drains, house cavities and taps. Store food in sealed containers, so, never leave food out overnight for the cockroaches to feed.

Even dirty dishes can attract and prevent cockroach control.  If dishes must be left until morning, place in the sink covered with hot soapy water. Cockroaches do not like water containing dish-washing soap.

Make sure the kitchen, dining room, and any other area of the home where residents consume food of any kind is free food and crumbs.

Cockroach Life Cycle

Cockroaches have a high rate of reproduction.  Each egg capsule will contain approximately 40 baby’s. It takes 28 days from the first formation of the egg  until it hatches. The female carries the egg  from the rear of her abdomen until the eggs are ready to hatch.  Formation of the next egg capsule usually begins within 2 weeks. Baby cockroaches require as little as forty days until they reach mature adult. Adult cockroaches can live up to a year.
