Cockroach Control Services

Cockroaches are insects of the order Blattodea. They are one of the most common household pests, having a long history of association with human habitats. In addition, some cockroach species can transmit diseases through their droppings or by contaminating food; hence removing them from your property is essential.

At Tom’s Pest Control, we offer professional pest controls services to eliminate cockroach infestations in homes, buildings, and other structures. Using chemical insecticides and other methods, we promise to eradicate the cockroach population from your property and make arrangements to prevent them from returning.

Pest Cockroach Species

Below are the common cockroach species found in various homes and offices:


German Cockroaches

German cockroaches are small, brown insects about 1.1 to 1.6 cm long. They are recognisable by two dark stripes on their backs and their tendency to hide in dark, moist areas. German cockroaches are known to be one of the most challenging to control and eliminate due to their rapid reproductive rate and ability to develop resistance to insecticides. They are commonly found in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where food and moisture are readily available. They are considered a significant health hazard, as they can carry and spread diseases, and their presence can also trigger allergies and asthma in some people.


Australian Cockroaches

Australian cockroaches are large, reddish-brown insects known for the distinctive yellow markings along their wings. They can grow up to 35 mm in length and can fly. Australian cockroaches are known to be strong fliers and are often found in homes and other structures, particularly in the warmer months. They are attracted to light and are known to feed on various organic materials, including plants, other insects, and decomposing material. Like other cockroach species, Australian cockroaches can be carriers of diseases and trigger allergies and asthma in some people.


American Cockroaches

American cockroaches are one of the largest species of cockroaches, growing up to 5cm in length. They are reddish-brown insects with a distinctive yellow margin on their thorax. These cockroaches are attracted to moisture and are often found in basements, sewers, and drains. They feed on various organic materials, including plants, other insects, and decaying material, and can carry and spread diseases.


Smokey Brown Cockroaches

Smokey brown cockroaches are large, dark brown to black insects. They are about 32-35 mm long and have a shiny appearance. They have long antennae and wings that cover the entire body. Smokey brown cockroaches are strong fliers and are often found in trees and shrubs, but they can also be found in homes and other structures.


Oriental Cockroaches

Oriental cockroaches, also known as ``waterbugs,`` are large, dark, reddish-brown to black insects measuring about 25 mm in length. They have short wings that do not cover the entire body, making them poor fliers. Oriental cockroaches are often found in damp, dark places, such as basements, crawl spaces, and drains.


Brown Banded Cockroaches

Brown-banded cockroaches are small, light to dark brown insects measuring about 10-14 mm. They have distinctive lighter-coloured bands across their bodies. Male cockroaches can fly; however, the females have shorter wings that don't allow them to fly. Brown-banded cockroaches are known to infest a wide range of environments, including homes, apartments, hotels, and hospitals.
