Cockroach Control Services

Belonging to the order Blattodea, cockroaches are common household pests that have always been associated with human habitats. Certain species of cockroaches can spread diseases through their droppings or by contaminating food, making it crucial to eliminate them from your premises.

Tom’s Pest Control offers expert pest control services to eradicate cockroach infestations in residential, commercial, and other structures. Our team utilises chemical insecticides and other effective techniques to eliminate the cockroach population from your property and implement measures to prevent their re-emergence.

Pest Cockroach Species

The following are some species of cockroaches commonly found in homes and offices:

German cockroaches are tiny brown insects measuring about 1.1 to 1.6 cm in length with distinctive dual dark stripes on their backs. They tend to conceal themselves in damp, dimly lit environments and are challenging to manage and exterminate due to their quick reproductive rate and capacity to build insecticide resistance. Typically, they are found in areas with food and moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms. As they carry and transmit diseases, German cockroaches are a severe health risk, and their existence can also trigger allergies and asthma in individuals.

Australian cockroaches have unintentionally made their way to New Zealand and have become invasive in the country. They are larger in size than the native species, reaching up to 30 mm. These cockroaches are commonly found in homes, gardens, and urban areas, preferring warm and humid environments. New Zealand is actively working on controlling their population to mitigate their impact on the local ecosystem. Drawn to light, they feed on various organic matter, including plants, insects, and decaying materials. Like their counterparts, Australian cockroaches can transmit diseases and trigger allergies and asthma in sensitive individuals.
