Cockroach control is an important part of maintaining a healthy home environment. If ever there was a pest that homeowners shouldn’t try to eliminate themselves, it’s cockroaches.
Even the cleanest of homes are can experience a cockroach infestation.
The best way to get rid of cockroaches in your kitchen and throughout your home is to contact a professional, like the team at Swat-A-Pest, to prevent making a cockroach infestation worse.
A safe healthy home is what we all want for our families.
Having the right cockroach treatment is essential to get rid of cockroaches.
If you spray a female cockroach with surface spray, she may release her egg sack prior to death. What becomes remarkable, is that the female cockroach will die from the surface spray (making the person believe it’s working) however, the surface spray will not kill the larvae growing in the egg casing.
What’s the remarkable part? Every baby cockroach that emerges from the egg sack, will be immune to the surface spray product applied to the mother cockroach.
Typically, we hear about how a customer sprayed a store-bought product and it worked, but after a while (the eggs hatch) they ended up with tonnes of cockroaches and the spray no longer seems to be working and by the time they contact us, they have bred up super cockroaches. This prompts people to then contact a professional cockroach exterminator.
Not only is the cockroach one of the main culprits in the spread of Salmonella poisoning, but their urine is undetectable to the human eye (could be on your plate or utensils that you put into your mouth).
Cockroach excrement can make breathing problems such as asthma and allergies so much worse due to the air becoming contaminated with the secretions from their bodies.
German cockroaches (cockroaches typically found in kitchens) can have between 30-40 babies in each egg casing (sack). This is why cockroach infestations need to be handled by a professional straight away.
These pests are not picky eaters. They will eat anything from leftovers, garbage, animal excrement, pet food and much more.
Once they have crawled around in disgusting areas, they will then walk around your home in areas that you prepare food, your cutlery, plates or areas that you engage in everyday activity.
Cockroaches in Perth prefer warm areas, which is why they commonly short out the electrics in dishwashers, fridges, microwaves, kettles and coffee makers.
One of our Swat-A-Pest customers had over $3,000 worth of damage to kitchen appliances from cockroaches before they contacted us. We now keep their kitchen and premises cockroach free with regular cockroach treatments.

Cockroaches have the ability to survive a nuclear blast, therefore making them one of the hardest pests to fully eradicate, many times, this is made even harder, due to the use of inadequate store-bought products.
