What our clients say about our work

Thank you MacCotter’s. You came to my home for a termite inspection and I would like to thank you for your professional but friendly approach. I would also like to thank you for your patience with all my questions (yep, I asked a whole heap) and your consideration with your answers. I have had termite inspections over the years but none so thorough as you provided. Your inspection report was also very detailed. You were prompt & obviously very experienced. You have been able to provide me with some peace of mind about my home and that is worth so much more than what you charged for your inspection. I absolutely recommend you to anyone who wants great service from people who care! Thanks so much.

How to Get rid of Cockroaches in my Home?

Do it yourself (DIY) methods can be used but are very hard to use safely around your family and pets and they are often not completely effective. The management of your family and pets safety is a primary concern of MacCotter Termite & Pest Control.

A professional treatment plan includes a full inspection of your home for general pests like  Cockroaches, Silverfish, Spiders, Ants, and Wasps. If your carpet is being damaged by carpet moths or your lawn eaten by lawn grubs we have solutions for you. Termite/ white ants are one of our specialities. We pride ourselves on listening to your concerns and look for any unusual signs of pests in your home and yard

Cockroaches are a Health Risk

Cockroaches eat decaying vegetation and are an important part of the eco system.

There are approximately 350 to 400 types of cockroach in Australia but only a few are regarded as pests

The Main Pest Cockroach Types:

The Brown Banded Cockroach (14mm) and the German Cockroach (12mm) are the smallest . The brown banded likes drier conditions around the house while the German needs moisture so invades the wet areas in the home  like kitchens and bathrooms. Cockroaches can carry diseases such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. They eat food and faeces of animals and can harbour viruses such as the Polio Virus. Bacteria can survive in their digestive systems for months and even years and is passed on to humans. They will defecate and vomit on food and disease can be passed on to humans who eat contaminated food. It has also been known for some people to develop allergies caused by cockroaches.

The most serious pest is the German Cockroach.

German Cockroaches are small and prefer areas like the kitchen. Domestic and commercial properties are equally affected and left untreated the infestation can reach chronic proportions. They are found under sinks, in bath tubs,  hot water systems, refrigerators, and walls voids.  Once they have established a large population they can get out of control. Cockroaches lay egg casings with 30 to 40 eggs per casing. The female breeds three to for times a year. Once eggs have hatched small cockroaches invade every spot in reach. The most common place to find growing hatchlings is in the pages of cook books, any paper, cloths, linen, bath towling, kitchen draws, cutlery, all pantry items and inside any electronic device. Microwaves, cash registers, calculators, toasters, stoves, heaters, sandwich makers all are potential places for infestation.
