Cockroach treatments

Cockroaches are major pests, but, with our cockroach treatments we’ll remove these pests from your home.

Cockroaches are a pest that need to be dealt with quickly. They can contaminate food and carry diseases. Cockroach infestations can occur anywhere, both inside and outside the home. Common indoor and outdoor hiding places include cracks and crevices, crawl spaces, roofs, kitchen cabinets, cardboard boxes, and decaying organic matter.


Our cockroach control services can treat all kinds of WA cockroaches including American cockroaches and German cockroaches.

 What is the best way to prevent a cockroach infestation?

Cockroaches avoid light and prefer warm, moist situations close to a food source like unwashed dishes. The first way to combat cockroaches is to maintain adequate hygiene standards and levels of cleanliness. Remove all food waste, garbage bins, dirty dishes, spilled food, pet food, and debris from the house on a regular basis and ensure you are storing food properly.

One cockroach can become a major infestation in just a few weeks. If your cockroach pest control methods are not helping to eliminate cockroaches, we recommend contacting Envirotechnics to discuss alternative pest control treatments.

An Envirotechnics treatment plan can help control common pests like cockroaches

Successful management begins with a thorough inspection of the property to identify the species of pest cockroaches and to determine the extent and source of the infestation. An integrated pest management program can then be prepared combining the elimination of food, water and harbourage.
