Best Ways to Control Cockroaches In Your Home

The cockroach population in Sydney has an interesting lineage with German, American, Australian and native species of cockroaches residing amicably.Warm and humid places such as kitchens, bathrooms, and cupboards are the favorite hide-outs for cockroaches. They also inhabit places where food is aplenty, like under fridges, toasters etc.


Cockroaches are not choosy when it comes to what they eat, but they have a distinct liking for starchy foods. Pests tend to flock to areas where they can have easy access to food or where there is garbage. Your pet’s food bowls are an open invitation to cockroaches as well. So how can you rid your home of these pests? Here are some tips from the experts at Fair Dinkum:


Cockroach Baits And Traps


A simple way to effectively get rid of cockroaches is to use cockroach traps and baits. A single bait is often sufficient to attract the cockroaches. The breeding cycle of cockroaches is broken as the bait kills them.

  • Read instructions about their use and precautions
  • Their residue lingers for 3 months

  • It is important to cover children’s toys when these bombs are used in the home
