It can be a very difficult process to exterminate German cockroaches. Out of all the different species of cockroaches, these are the ones which breed the fastest and quickly adapt to their habitat and environment. If you’ve discovered German cockroaches inside your house you need to consult a pest control expert to organize extermination and take care of the infestation before it becomes too severe as well as taking measure to prevent reinfestation. The fumigation cost to rid your household or property of cockroaches ranges from $250 to $350 depending on the extent of the infestation.
How do I know I have German cockroaches?
The adult German cockroaches are roughly 10-15mm long and their colour is light to medium brown. They also have two parallel stripes upon their head which appear darker than their body. If you’ve discovered discarded skins, faeces which looks brown and gritty and you see cockroaches around your home you could have a problem. If you are suspicious of cockroaches which might be infesting your home it would be a good idea to consult a pest control expert earlier rather than later as it meant prevent a full-fledged infestation developing.
How can I get rid of them?
Cockroaches are known for harbouring and carrying diseases and germs which makes it very important that they are done away with as swiftly as possible to negate any possible health issues form developing. The most effective way of doing so is by getting a professional to conduct pest extermination at your home. A pest control expert will do so by visiting your home and spraying areas which have been infested by cockroaches with special equipment which is capable of reaching inside all the tiny crevices and cracks where cockroaches tend to hide. If you have an expert on hand to take care of the problem it is well worth the actual fumigation cost as the expert will have lots of experience and knowledge gained over time to help him identify the most likely spots for roaches to be hiding.
How do I stop them coming back?
Often it takes a while for your home to become completely free of German cockroaches and once it is completely free it’s very important to take the necessary measures to stop them from coming back. You can do so by sealing up all the little gaps and cracks inside your house through which they can gain entry or where they can hide. This would include areas behind kitchen cupboards and cabinets as well as gaps inside skirting boards or surrounding doors. Taking the time to spray around your house regularly as well as spraying inside cupboards goes a long way in keeping them away.
One of the most fundamental things to do is keep your home clean to avoid attracting cockroaches. Also make sure that floors and the table top surfaces inside your kitchen is kept clean and clear of crumbs or spilled liquids. Try to always eat in the same area where you prepare food. Taking these steps once a pest control expert has treated your home will help you prevent future reinfestation and any further fumigation cost.

"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."
