How We Control Cockroaches

For the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland, we provide the following cockroach treatment packages:

It’s extremely likely that if you wait until you encounter a cockroach, you’ll already be dealing with an infestation. So make an appointment for one of our cockroach control treatments right now!

There are surface sprays on the market, but they will not keep cockroaches out of your home. These over-the-counter sprays will not reach your home’s cavities, which is the most important factor to consider while dealing with cockroaches. Our professional dusts and gel baits must be used in these hard-to-reach nooks and crannies!

We also strongly advise hiring an expert to identify the various species of cockroaches in your home. To deal with German Cockroaches, we have the necessary training, years of experience, and professional products. These roaches are notoriously tough to eradicate, often necessitating numerous expert treatments.

Why Are Cockroaches Such a Problem?

They are a highly adaptable and flexible bug. In general, cockroaches are very successful organisms that are difficult to eradicate on your own. When you discover you are sharing your home with cockroaches, we understand your aggravation and pain.

Cockroaches are an obnoxious pest to have in your home for the following reasons:

  • When they are in your home, they live in close proximity to you and frequently have human diseases on their bodies that can be transmitted to your household. In their digestive tracts, over forty types of bacteria that are toxic to humans have been discovered. The cockroach has also been found to harbor worm parasites, viruses, and protozoa.
  • Their mouths are incredibly strong, and they can chew through a variety of household goods.
  • They’ll congregate near food sources and in the kitchen, where you store food and cook meals.
  • Droppings, skins, egg casings, and vomit contaminate food and utensils.
  • Cockroach infestations produce an unpleasant odor as a result of their waste and secretions.
  • Cockroaches can cause allergic reactions in some people, and in certain situations, they can even precipitate an asthma attack.
  • Cockroaches have even been seen to directly attack humans as a food source, though this is extremely rare.
  • They are extremely adaptable and have developed resistance to the majority of over-the-counter insect repellents, rendering them ineffective.

What Do Cockroaches Do?

Cockroaches prefer humid, warm temperatures, but they can be found anywhere.

  • Cockroach populations are most commonly found in kitchens, where they have an endless supply of food and water.
  • A female cockroach has a one-year lifespan. She can lay roughly 50-1200 eggs in her lifespan, which take two to four months to hatch. Cockroach infestations can happen quickly due to their high rate of reproduction. It’s not uncommon for a home to have over 20,000 cockroaches in a year.
  • Hair, dried beer in carpets, grease, crumbs, dog biscuits, wallpaper adhesive, leather, cardboard, and fabrics are just a few of the things they devour. Housekeeping is critical in minimizing cockroach populations, but even the cleanest home will provide ample food for the infamous cockroach.
  • Cockroaches are nocturnal, meaning they will hide during the day and emerge at night to feed. The majority of people are unaware of the degree of their cockroach infestation. Cockroaches that are active during the day suggest that a big overpopulation has already taken over your home.
  • Cockroaches hide in holes and tight cracks seeking security throughout the day. They will come out of hiding once we apply professional treatment, and the entire scope of the problem will be revealed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our pest control services are safe for you, your family and your pets. All of our technicians are trained and licensed pest control technicians, who only use the best and safest products that have been approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority.

During our services, we use only the safest techniques and practices to ensure the safety of your loved ones. To do this, the following precautions are to be observed:

  • If you or a family member is particularly sensitive or suffers from allergic reactions, we recommend that person remains out of the home until the product has dried.
  • Protect or remove any pets from the treatment area until the product has dried.
  • Avoid contact with the treated surfaces until the product has dried.
  • Cover all food items and utensils prior to treatment.

You get what you pay for. Most budget providers work on volume, and so they have to complete their jobs quickly, and usually with a ‘one-product-fits-all’ approach. The end result may not be tailored to your home and situation, leaving you with less effective treatment that won’t last all year.

Here at Benchmark Pest Solutions, we pride ourselves on high quality thorough work, and providing an outstanding customer experience. We know how important it is to feel safe, comfortable and relaxed in your own home. To ensure this, we spend more time on your property treating more areas, and use a greater number of products to create a more effective and longer lasting treatment.

We’ve designed our own tailorable methods of treatment that give our customers the most effective service possible. In each treatment we use a number of different specialised products that work together to create a compounding effect that provides a high quality and longer lasting treatment. Because we are more detailed, thorough, and use a combination of premium products, we can confidently offer our 12 month pest free guarantee.

Short answer: The products we use are safe for you and your little one.

Long answer: How do we know they are safe? Before a product can be sold as a pesticide in Australia, it first must be approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority. If, for example, a product was harmful to pregnant women and still was approved for use as a pesticide and a pest control company chose to use it (we would not); a warning would have to be printed on the label and on the product’s Safety Data Sheet.

Therefore, we know that our products are safe for pregnant women because there are no warnings on the labels or the safety data sheets of any of our products. We are also in constant contact with our chemical supplier, who would advise us immediately if anything were to change.

If you still are not convinced, we won’t be offended if you prefer to leave the premises while we conduct the service at your home. What matters most to us is that you feel comfortable during an exciting time of your life.

Unless you are particularly sensitive or suffer from allergic reactions, there is no need for you to leave your home during our pest treatment. However, if you would like to leave, that is absolutely fine too.

Ideally, you would be home to meet our pest technician and advise of any problem areas or concerns. After that, it’s really a personal choice if you want to stay or leave.

Yes, we do! Any person with a Queensland Seniors Card will receive a 20% discount on all services that exceed our minimum call out fee, with the exception of Termite Prevention; both physical and chemical barriers. We will also recognise Seniors Cards from other Australian States.
