Cockroaches will eat almost anything. They’re attracted to dirty dishes, animal feeding stations, and water leaks. For general pest management, you must keep your home clean, promptly wiping up spills and washing dishes. Pack food in containers.

A pest inspection carried out by professional control pest management services like EPM will identify the source of the cockroach infestation, to tailor pest solutions for your property and offer protection against these nasty pests.
Types of Cockroaches
The German Cockroaches
The smallest and most common qld residential cockroaches, German cockroaches are flightless. They are light brown in colour and have two dark stripes on their head. They grow to between 12 and 15mm in size. German cockroaches breed prolifically and will start reproducing within two months of hatching. They lay eggs several times a year. A single female can produce tens of thousands of cockroaches each year.
German cockroaches are most likely to settle in your kitchen. They love appliances and electronic equipment. Effective pest treatments can flush them out.
The American Cockroaches
At 30 to 45mm, the American cockroach is one of the biggest cockroaches to inhabit Brisbane. This flying cockroach is reddish brown. Its head is framed in yellow. The American cockroach likes moisture and can be found around sewers, beneath the roof, and in rubbish dumps. These cockroaches often enter buildings through drains. You can help to prevent a pest invasion by leaving plugs in drains.
American cockroaches offload an odorous excretion, and you may pick up on the smell if there is a cockroach infestation in your home. The excretion may also contaminate food, changing the flavour.
The Australian Cockroaches
The flying Australian cockroach is 30 to 35mm in size. These dark brown cockroaches have yellow markings on their heads and wings. Despite their size, they’ll fit into slight cracks and under doors. They are plant eaters, so they are often found outdoors.

How Pest Control Services Treat Cockroach Infestations
Brisbane cockroach control, treatment and commercial pest services is a three-step process. When you call EPM Pest Control, we start the process with an inspection of your property. We will find likely entry points and look for moisture that may be attracting the cockroaches. We’ll also identify the type of cockroach that has moved onto your property so that we can formulate a cockroach treatment plan.
Once we’ve gauged the extent of the infestation, we’ll get started on the cockroach control treatment. The next step in the control program may include the introduction of cockroach baiting stations, spraying or trapping cockroaches, and offering advice on cleaning and sanitisation.
Cockroaches like dark secluded places. Inspections should focus on finding the area where the cockroaches nest. Spraying surfaces while leaving hiding places unattended will result in the cockroaches’ return.
Baits work well as the baiting stations contain small amounts of food and toxins that the cockroaches ingest. The toxins are slow working so the cockroaches may contaminate others in the nest. Cockroach baiting stations must be well-placed to work effectively. Depending on the extent of the cockroach infestation, it may be necessary to carry out follow-up pest treatments for your commercial or residential property.
