Professional pest control services have comprehensive, targeted cockroach extermination methods to make the property immune to future infestation. At Tom’s Pest Control, we begin the procedure with a cockroach inspection at the infested property. This helps us confirm the extent of the infestation, the reasons for the infestation, and the hideouts of the cockroaches. Based on the inspection results, we apply non-toxic and eco-friendly gel baiting on the hideouts of the cockroaches, behind hinges of doors, cracks, and below sinks to kill cockroaches. Additionally, we use special types of cockroach traps to eliminate the pest from the space. Finally, we secure any exterior openings and advise specific property sanitation tips to the property owners to minimise the risks of future infestation.

Cockroaches can be a nuisance pest and can pose a problem for homeowners. Although you can spray and set up bait stations, roaches may still return. Roaches, like all living creatures, need water to survive.
Cockroaches love to hide under damp areas, such as in your bathroom or kitchen. It doesn’t matter how much water; it only matters how much.

- Nasal clogging
- A skin rash

The most popular species in Australia are American, Australian, and German cockroaches.
The American cockroach can be a nuisance pest and infest other buildings. The American cockroach, which lives in trees and is sometimes called the “Palmetto bug”, is commonly known as the “Palmetto bug”. This is because it likes to live in dark, damp, and unperturbed areas.
They can be found in bathrooms, basements, and subfloors. American cockroaches measure 35-40mm in length and have a reddish-brown colour that sparkles. Male wings are larger than their bodies, and female wings barely touch their abdomens.
To eliminate roach reproduction, you can use an insect growth regulator (IGR) such as Tekko Trio Foam. To kill adult German Roaches, you can also use Invict Gold, a high-quality roach poison.

It does not repel insects (Insect Growth Regulation). First, spray the liquid mixture in cracks and crevices. Then, spray the Shockwave aerosol on the surface to eliminate any roaches.
As a long-term solution, we recommend Avert Flowable bait. It is very durable and can last for many years. It can be used as both bait and as tracking powder. Roaches consume this powdered roach bait in the same manner as the bride. You will not find the bait in cracks, crevices or under appliances. Gel baits can also be placed on flat surfaces.
German cockroaches will die if they are left to heat below 45 degrees F for more than 10 hours. They also die when they are exposed to temperatures below 14°F. This is because they cannot withstand extreme temperatures.
After being exposed to temperatures of 50 degrees. Cockroaches are cold-blooded and cannot regulate the temperature within their bodies. Therefore, they die when exposed to temperatures they do not like.

You can heat or freeze them, but they will die. Tom’s Pest Control Perth can help if you have severe cockroach infestations in the home or office.
