Inner West Pest Control German Cockroach Removal

Our Treatment approach

As with Inner West Pest Control's other treatments, our German cockroach control processes are child, pet, and plant friendly, ensuring both the best results and peace of mind that treatments won't affect those you care about most. While our treatments are safe for the home - they are most certainly effective against completely removing German Cockroaches from your Inner West residence.

Since we're local and locally owned, we understand the risks typically encountered in the Inner West, particularly with older, densely packed properties that are common in the area. As with all of our treatments, we work to ensure the highest quality service that is tailored to the specific needs and risks associated with the area. We'll even consult with you on weekends and outside business hours to limit your inconvenience.

About The German Cockroach

German Cockroaches are some of the most common pests in Inner Western homes, and are most certainly the most common cockroach species that occurs in Sydney premises. Like other species, German Cockroaches live close to water and food sources, which means they are easily attracted to kitchens and bathrooms. Like all cockroaches, they are incredibly difficult to remove by yourself, since they are swift and hide in concealed areas.

German cockroaches typically measure between 10 to 15mm long and are dark brown in colour. They find shelter in large numbers inside electrical appliances, warm, or moist areas. Found in large numbers, they breed in crevices, cracks, and kitchen door hinges. Their fast speed at which they breed makes this a difficult species to control and thus make them one of the largest problems in Inner West Sydney

German Cockroaches breed swiftly when left untreated, producing one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains between 25 and 45 eggs. That's 25 to 45 new cockroaches per existing cockroach every month. When fully grown the German Cockroach can be as large as 2 cm long. They are light to medium brown and have 2 dark distinctive stripes behind the head. The young German roaches (nymphs) are smaller than adults (as small as 3 mm) and are wingless. They have a light stripe on their backs and are darker in colour.

Since the female German Cockroach produces a large number of eggs, removing an infestation is challenging as the eggs will continue to hatch, even if the first set of alive cockroaches are killed. In fact, despite the female German Cockroach's short lifespan of 20 weeks, she can produce up to 35 thousand cockroaches. And since this species of cockroach protects their egg capsules by hiding and only detaching the capsule from itself a day before birth, their hatchlings are likely to survive initial do-it-yourself treatments.

How to get rid of German Cockroaches?

Because of their quick breeding speed and protection of their egg capsules, German Cockroaches are incredibly resistant to home-based treatments like cockroach traps and bombs - which is why cockroaches seem to continue to appear no matter what you do. These treatments simply do not have the power nor reach to eliminate this fast-breeding, well-hiding species of Cockroach.

This is why we recommend you hire a professional for a truly comprehensive extermination. At Inner West Pest Control, we offer professional and reliable pest control services, treatments, and advice across the Inner West suburbs of Sydney and surrounding areas. When it comes to home consultations for pest control services we work weekends and after hours to limit the inconvenience to you.
