German cockroaches in Perth are among the most unwelcome of home invaders. They can strike at any time of the year, bringing filth and disease with them. Many people mistakenly believe that only “dirty” people get cockroaches, but this is a myth. Every home or commercial kitchen has the potential to have a german cockroach problem.
German Roaches in WA are the most widespread and difficult cockroaches to control. Inside a home, German roaches can quickly reach infestation sizes if gone untreated or if they are treated improperly.
The German cockroach can only survive indoors, so it must be introduced into the structure usually from purchasing used electrical appliances that are infested or bringing them home from a grocery store.
A German roach infestation will usually begin from within a kitchen, after a used appliance has been introduced into the home. The first thing most people do after seeing these roaches is panic and reach for the bug spray. This is the worst thing you could possibly do.
Roaches in Perth can live in hostile environments, without food or water, for long periods of time. Even the cleanest homes can become infested with roaches, and they will commonly claim the kitchen, notably the dishwasher, as their home base.
How to treat for German cockroaches in your Perth home?
The standard method of treating for cockroaches has been to spray insecticides on baseboards and in cupboards, with the hope that cockroaches will crawl across the band of dried insecticide and the residue left from the application will kill them. We now know that this type of treatment is not very effective. Reasons why include:
- Cockroaches do not live behind baseboards, but live in dark, damp locations near food and water sources. Efforts to locate and treat these hiding places are much more effective.
- Insecticides are not 100 percent effective and, unless efforts are made to reduce food, water and harborage, populations of the prolific German cockroach are likely to rebound.
- Cockroaches species, including the German cockroach, have developed insecticidal resistance to many insecticides.
- Most insecticidal sprays, especially aerosol treatments, don’t have much residual activity. This is also true of “bomb” type applications.
The only and best way to control German Cockroaches is to introduce a baiting system formulation. We introduce ‘Indoxacarb’ to your property, ‘Indoxacarb’ offers a unique mode of action compared to other active ingredients, going through four different phases that block the insect’s sodium channels.
