When is cockroach season in Australia

When is cockroach season in Australia? Cockroaches are a year-round problem in many parts of the country. However, they tend to become more active during warmer and wetter months, typically between October and March, and even beyond that here in Brisbane. During these months, you may notice an increase in cockroach sightings as they search for food, water and mates.

How can you protect your home from these unwanted guests? Here are some top tips from our pest control experts:

  1. Keep it clean –  Cockroaches are attracted to food and water sources, so keeping your home clean is essential. Be sure to wipe down counters, sweep floors, and put food away promptly. Also, don’t forget to take out the rubbish!
  2. Seal entry points – Cockroaches can squeeze through the tiniest of cracks and crevices, so sealing any potential entry points is a must. Inspect your home for gaps around windows, doors, and pipes, and seal them with caulk or foam sealant.
  3. Eliminate moisture –  Moisture is a cockroach’s best friend, so it’s important to address any leaks or water buildup in your home. Check under sinks, around windows, and in basements or cellars for evidence of moisture and address any issues promptly.
  4. Professional pest control – Let’s face it; cockroaches can be tough to get rid of once they’ve made themselves at home. Partnering with a professional pest control service is your best bet for keeping these creepy crawlies at bay. We can provide you with customised treatment plans and ongoing maintenance to ensure your home stays cockroach-free all year round.
  5. Stay vigilant –  Finally, don’t let your guard down! Regularly inspect your home for signs of cockroaches, such as droppings, shed skin, or egg casings. If you suspect an infestation, don’t hesitate to contact us!
