How To Get Rid Of German Cockroaches?

German cockroaches are a massive problem in Sydney and the Inner West. The problem is that they breed relatively quickly and can cause a massive surge in numbers in a short rapid time. A single German Cockroach female can lay up to 30,000eggs per year and are a major issue that can spring up extremely quickly. Main harbouring areas are in the kitchen, bathroom, appliances such as dishwasher and the hot water system, the issue can spread dramatically if left untreated to all areas of the house.

German Cockroaches in Sydney are usually brown in colour and the nymphs are black, but the most distinctive feature to recognize them is their usual small size in nature and slim, thin shape. They are mainly seen at night, however, if you see German cockroaches during the day, there is probably substantial infestation present.

German Cockroaches in Sydney are remarkably resilient to many standard pest control measures and off the shelf type chemical treatments. The main reasons for this resilience include a lack of natural predators, rapid reproduction with a short reproductive cycle, the ability to hide in small and confined spaces, plus an impressive resistance to many chemical pesticides.

For the treatment, control, and removal of German Cockroaches to be effective, it must be comprehensive, structured and systematic. Even the survival of a couple of eggs is enough to ensure re-population and re-infestation.
