Cockroaches are one of the most common pests found in homes and businesses. They can contaminate food, cooking utensils and furnishings and they carry and transmit diseases such as gastroenteritis and dysentery. They breed rapidly and invariably you only see a few of what may be a large infestation.
German, American, Oriental, Australian and Smokey Brown cockroaches are all pests due to their preference to live indoors. They are attracted to food, including pet food, and harbour in warm moist areas. Typically, you find cockroaches in and around kitchens, bathrooms, BBQ’s and rubbish bins.

The three types of cockroaches most commonly found in Australia are the German cockroach, American cockroach and Australian cockroach.
Australian cockroaches typically grow up to 23 -35mm long. Similar in appearance to the American cockroach, the Australian cockroach are brown with a yellow line around its head. It prefers moist environments, and their debris and faeces can cause asthma and allergies.
German cockroaches are light brown to tan, with two dark and almost parallel stripes located on their backs, just behind their heads. They are much smaller in size and grow to about 15 mm in length. They will eat almost anything including built-up cooking grease. If sighted during the day, these cockroaches are probably part of a very large local population.
American cockroaches are one of the largest of the cockroach species. Adults are typically 40 mm long, are reddish-brown and have a border around the head area. This cockroach can fly, particularly in warm weather. The American cockroach is mostly found in dark, warm and moist locations. They prefer decaying organic waste and can survive for months without food.
