Cockroaches are a pest in winter too!
Most homeowners tend to be more concerned about cockroach control during the warmer seasons, spring and summer.
It’s well known that in the warm weather means more insects and that is the case for a lot of cockroach species.
German Cockroaches can remain a significant winter pest.
The reason for this is that their environment is your kitchen. A place where it’s usually warm, with warm electrical items such as fridge motors, ovens. Places where these cockroaches can maintain their optimal breeding capacity due to favourable temperatures.
Inside your kitchen there is plenty of food, even if your home is spotless. There is also access to water. Cockroaches can go long periods without food but will die reasonably quickly in comparison without water.
The following photos were taken while attending a property in Wagga Wagga just last week and show cockroach activity in the kitchen cupboards.
The home owner had previously had only seen one or two cockroaches roaming the kitchen in the past few weeks.
Being nocturnal insects that mostly hide during the day means if you see a couple, there’s most likely many more cockroaches you can’t see.
They have an extremely fast life-cycle and one or two cockroaches can turn into hundreds or thousands quite quickly if left untreated.
These pictures show classic German Cockroach behaviour, hiding in a crack during the daylight hours.
At night, these cockroaches will venture out in search of food. As the population grows, they’ll seek out more and more areas throughout the home like this to hide.
