Australian Cockroach Treatment
There are several species of cockroaches prevalent in NSW, with Australian cockroaches the most common variety. One of the largest cockroach species, Australian cockroaches are easily identifiable by their large, reddish-brown bodies with a yellow band around the thorax, long antennas, and spiky legs. While they don’t transmit diseases directly, they are still a major health hazard because they can contaminate food, either directly or by coming into contact with food preparation areas.
German Cockroach Treatment
Less common than their Australian counterparts and seldom seen due to their nocturnal nature and aversion to light, German cockroaches are a small cockroach with a pale brown body and two longitudinal streaks on the front of the thorax. Like most cockroach species, it prefers warm, humid environments, nests in cracks and crevices and is usually found in close proximity to food and water. As German cockroaches are fast and prolific breeders, we usually recommend a second treatment conducted six weeks after the initial spraying to ensure no cockroaches and eggs remain.

Interior and Exterior Cockroach Treatments
Once we have done a full inspection of the property we will likely use a combination of treatments to kill cockroaches and their nesting sites. Prevention is always better than a cure and we will advise on best practices to ensure they don’t return. Cockroaches are nocturnal and like most pests are drawn to warm damp places with food sources close by. This doesn’t mean your home is dirty as cockroaches are very common, but we will advise on some best practices to give them less reason to come into your home once we have eliminated them.
Masterkill will commonly use a combination of the following cockroach treatments:
- Spraying – This is the most common method as its immediate and effective. It stops them from spreading to other areas. The spray is eco-friendly and pet and human safe but it’s best to keep these areas dry so we will let you know precisely where we have sprayed
- Baiting – This is now effective again thanks to new technologies. The newest gel baits are safe and odourless and great even for kitchens. Far more effective than powders
- Sticky Board Traps – These are similar to fly paper traps and are safe to use everywhere. Not effective on their own, but well placed and in combination with spraying and baiting then they can make a real difference
