Low Toxic Cockroach Management

Do you need information about cockroach management? In the bush, these insects perform a useful role in the eco-system but in the populated suburbs, some species are just pests. Nobody likes to see cockroaches and you may have noticed that a percentage of people become extremely alarmed on sighting one! Perhaps not without good reason – cockroaches can carry a range of dangerous bacteria including Salmonella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. They may also be capable of carrying viruses such as the polio virus.

It’s because of the capacity of cockroaches to carry and spread disease that Cockroach management is just as important in the home as it is in a food outlet.

“Cockroaches are some of the most resilient pests out there. Rumored to be able to survive the apocalypse they present quite a threat to any residence. I’m happy to say that I’d love to get rid of the roaches in your home by using our low- and non-toxic treatment procedures.” – Bruce Gow

How Cockroaches Spread Disease

Cockroaches are scavengers. Not only do they feed on discarded rubbish and dead animals, they also enter sewers to scavenge. They ingest bacteria while eating, and collect it on their body while moving. As they eat and move about they regurgitate and expel faeces, leaving bacteria behind. When they travel around your kitchen and investigate the food packets in your cupboard, they may be leaving harmful bacteria behind – and when you touch the surface of pick up something they have walked on, you may come into contact with those bacteria.

Discouraging Cockroaches

You can discourage cockroaches by:

• Ensuring that food is sealed and crumbs or residue not left on benches, the floor or in the pantry.
• Promptly removing rubbish from the home and keeping outside bins sealed as well as possible.
• Not leaving pet food or dirty pet food bowls out.
• Storing old books, magazines or other items that are not in use in well sealed plastic containers rather than cardboard boxes, or just stacking them in a storage cupboard.
• Regularly clean behind and beneath kitchen appliances like the microwave and fridge, and remove the crumbs daily from your toaster.
• Using a surface spray.

Whether you’re a restaurant operator or a home owner, the sight of a cockroach scurrying across the floor – or even belly up dead in the cupboard – is something you’d prefer not to see; and it’s certainly something that your visitors or customers don’t want to see. But sometimes, despite your best efforts in regard to hygiene, cockroaches still appear. This may sometimes be the result of unhygienic conditions at nearby premises, or conversely, the result of a recent pest control or cockroach management treatment nearby that has sent the local cockroaches off in search of new food sources.

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"

"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."
