Cockroach Control Melbourne

The sturdy and resilient cockroach eats a wide range of food including anything that is rotting, and even faecal matter. With a high tolerance to toxins and poisons, they have an innate ability to survive almost anything, except a Pest Police expert! Cockroaches happily go about spreading disease widely which is harmful to humans and can be responsible for salmonella and gastroenteritis outbreaks. They can also carry viruses such as polio. The most common species in Melbourne are the German Cockroach which is the most common brown cockroach we see, the American cockroach which has a yellow band behind its head, and the Australia cockroach which is less common and has yellow bands across its head and wings.
These almost indestructible pests can harbour bacteria in their digestive system for months and release them onto food or utensils or anything they’re scurrying over during the night, which is then consumed and used by humans.
Cockroaches are nocturnal and prefer being in dark corners, under cupboards, cracks in walls, near water heaters and whitegoods or in food areas. It is unlikely you will see one during the day as they prefer moving at night. However, if you see one during the day then this is a sign there may well be a significant infestation in your home or building.

Did you know?

Cockroaches can live for up to 12 months, are cold blooded and thrive in warm, humid, and unhygienic conditions. Cockroaches will eat almost anything, both animal and vegetable matter, and this includes sweets, paper, fabric, leather, starches, grease and pet food and can survive for a month without food.

With a strong will to survive, these pests are hard to eliminate and, in most cases, require a professional pest control service to eradicate them completely. If you see one during the day, it is often as sign there is a larger infestation coming into the home from access points that are hidden away.

Cockroach pest control includes:

Identification of the type of cockroach, access points and extent of infestation
Advise suitable, safe eradication techniques
In commercial workspaces, we’ll provide advice on safety standards to maintain Australian health regulatory requirements.

A small investment for a large return – your peace of mind.

The service was held in professional way. I wasn't though asked and I didn't give any permission for the pictures taken from my place and see those pictures at a later stage on the inspection report. I do understand that the technician use these as a proof that he conducted the place and did the inspection finally but it should get my permission first.

Pest Police were efficient throughout the entire process of having termites removed from our home. They are excellent communicators - replied back extremely quickly and even followed up when we forgot to call or reply. They have excellent attention to detail and ensured all termites were removed before they cleared us for further work. We highly recommend them for their professional and thorough service.

Well, I will probably echo what several other customers have said but since the minute we established communication, Pest Police have been great when looking after our rodent issues. Communication with Lily was very easy and accessible but thorough. Steven is a very knowledgable and experienced professional and the type of guy who loves his job and explains the dos and don'ts in simple words. I highly recommend Pest Police and actually, will call them back for more at any time. Cheers! 2 years already.....well, PP are now the 'go to' for our yearly pest checkups and recently helped me out with a Wasp problem. Same communication level and results, great service of course.
