Cockroach Control Brisbane


Cockroach Control in Brisbane

If you’ve spotted a cockroach on your premise, the chances are that there’s plenty more hiding away. Unfortunately, the main issue with cockroaches is their wide distribution and rapid reproduction rates. Worldwide there’s over 4000 different species of cockroaches, but the three main household cockroach species we treat are:

  • American Cockroaches: Adult American cockroaches are the largest household cockroach, they can grow up to 55mm in length. They are reddish-brown in colour and adults have useful wings which are capable of gliding flight. 
  • Australian Cockroaches: Adult Australian cockroaches are reddish-brown to dark brown with yellow markings on the top of their head and the front edge of each wing. They are slightly smaller than their American counterpart. They have functional wings and are capable of gliding flight.
  • German Cockroaches: Adult German cockroaches are the smallest of the cockroaches in size. They are identifiable by their pale brown colour and dark brown stripes. Although they have wings, they prefer to crawl. They have the fastest breeding cycle and produce more eggs than any other species of cockroach. 

Where Do Cockroaches Thrive?

Cockroaches are attracted to warm, humid and dark conditions. They are deterred by bright lights, which is why their eggs can be difficult to detect. As cockroaches are scavengers, they thrive in locations where they have access to second hand food such as bread crumbs and other food scraps that are commonly swept under cabinets and fridges. 

Cockroaches don’t simply lay a singular egg, they lay multiple. All of these eggs are contained within a single egg case. This egg case is also referred to as an ootheca. The number of cockroaches within an ootheca varies from species to species, but typically there’s around 40 cockroaches per egg case. After hatching, nymphs take anywhere from 6 to 12 months to develop into fully-fleshed adults.

Can Cockroaches Make You Sick?

Cockroaches leave traces of their existence wherever they go. If you’re asthmatic, you could be in trouble. Cockroaches leave traces of shedded skin which contain allergens that trigger symptoms of asthma. Unfortunately, cockroaches are also a common cause of Salmonella, a disease similar to food poisoning that can cause diarrhoea, fevers and vomiting.

There’s a common saying that ‘you can’t kill a cockroach’. Although they’re difficult to get rid of, they’re far from invincible. This is where Bruin Pest management comes in. If you’ve seen signs of a cockroach infestation, we’ll draw upon years of experience to keep your home cockroach-free.
