Signs of a cockroach infestation

Cockroaches are active at all times of the year. This means that infestations can occur whether it’s spring, autumn, winter or summer. Signs of a cockroach infestation include significant evidence of “spotting,” which is the technical term for cockroach vomit and faeces, in corners or other hiding places. Some other signs that your home or business is suffering from a cockroach infestation includes egg cases or skins/husks that are left behind once a cockroach has moulted. There may even be a suspicious smell if the cockroach infestation is big enough.

Tips for the prevention of cockroaches

Cockroaches require three things in order to survive and thrive: food, water and shelter. This means that the best tip for preventing cockroach infestations is to eliminate one or all of these things. This can be done through regular cleaning of your home.

At SAYFER, we recommend cleaning spilled food and dirty dishes before they can accumulate. In addition to using a garbage bin with a tight-fitting lid.  Do not leave pet food out, close your dishwasher after use and fix any areas of moisture such as leaky taps. It is also advised to fill all cracks and crevices to prevent cockroaches from invading your property.

Cockroach control measures

If you believe your cockroach problem is out of hand, the best option is to give the SAYFER friendly and highly trained team a call. We will use cockroach baits, total release aerosols, pump sprays and other pesticides to eliminate your infestation.

All techniques will cause minimal inconvenience to your home and lifestyle. We also use environmentally friendly chemicals during the extermination process. Contact SAYFER now to ensure you remove cockroaches quickly and safely.

Spotting the differences between the Australian & American Cockroach

The Australian Cockroach is often mistaken for the American as they are similar in appearance. However, it is slightly smaller than the American cockroach and has yellow margins around the thorax, accompanied by yellow streaks down the sides of its wings base. The Australian cockroach is also a very good flyer but mostly during warmer weather and prefers warmer climates, however it can survive indoors during colder weather as long as water is available, so warm, moist conditions are ideal. It is also a scavenger feeder but unlike its relatives it prefers decaying matter and plants. It is often seen scavenging for food in the yard in warmer weather and will live under leaf litter or shrubbery in the garden beds.

Like the American cockroach, the Australian cockroach does not like light and if found in the home it will be more common at night, usually darting away when you enter the room. If a large infestation is in the home, there is often a distinct odour. Droppings and vomit marks are normally visible on cupboards and hinges inside cupboards and drawers.  A thorough pest treatment needs to be done before the problem gets worse.
