These pests are found all throughout Australia and can carry diseases with serious consequences such as salmonella, gastro-enteritis, dysentery, tuberculosis, hepatitis, typhoid fever and many others.

Diseases are carried on the legs and bodies of cockroaches and are rubbed off onto food, cooking and eating utensils as they feed and move around your kitchen, bathroom and other areas where conditions suit.

Cockroaches like warm moist places and can be found in kitchens, roof spaces, under houses, inside food stores, bakeries, restaurants, hospitals, factories, garages, sheds, and especially around drains and under leaf litter or bark litter outside.

Next time your Telstra technician pays you a visit, have a look inside the junction pit. You might be amazed to find hundreds of cockroaches breeding there. Another favourite hiding place for them is inside the alarm system, especially in food stores and restaurants. Some cockroaches will even make their home inside refrigerator motors, microwaves, cordless jugs and cordless telephone bases.

Cockroaches contaminate, frighten the wife and kids, create bad odours, cause allergic reactions in some people, and have even been known to bite. Along with the rat, cockroaches are one of the most efficient spreaders of disease and are prolific breeders, posing a real threat to the health of yourself and your family.

The eggs are encapsulated in an egg case, which may contain up to 40 eggs and each cockroach may lay up to 50 egg cases per year. That’s a lot of nasty cockroaches in your home.
