Australia has over 400 native species of cockroaches which are of no concern to the homeowner.
There are six pest species, which apparently had their origin in tropical and subtropical Africa and now occur over most of the world.
These pest species were introduced into Australia over the last 200 years and are the most often encountered household pests in Australia.
German cockroach (Blattella Germanica), this is one of the smaller cockroaches, amber-brown in colour and with two longitudinal dark stripes on the thorax.
It is the most prolific breeder of the pest cockroaches, having four generations a year and taking only 40 days to mature from egg to adult during summer.
German Cockroaches are usually found in kitchens behind and under stoves, dishwashers and sinks.
During recent years microwave ovens and computers have had their electronic controls damaged by cockroaches that have been attracted to the warmth.
When German cockroaches are seen in rooms other than the kitchen, it is likely that the population is very dense.
The German cockroach is mainly introduced from eggs being attached to new products / appliances, from fridges, microwaves, right down to cardboard packaging from your local supermarket etc.
The other 5 pest species of cockroaches are - American Cockroach (Peroplaneta Americana) live both indoors and outside depending on conditions.
Australia Cockroach (Periplaneta Asutralasiae) favours warmer climates and occurs mostly outside.
Brownbanded Cockroach (Supella Longipalpa) is likely to be found in homes, hotels or apartments, rather than commercial stores, restaurants or kitchens. Smokybrown Cockroach (Periplaneta Fuliginosa) is found in roof voids of houses, walls and subfloor areas.
Oriental Cockroach (Blatta Orientalis) is found in cooler climates, it lives under litter and garden mulch where vegetation decay occurs.
Cockroach eggs are encapsulated in a purse-shaped egg case which can not be penetrated by pesticides.
These eggs, depending on the species, can contain between 12 and 40 eggs.
If your home is dense with cockroaches it may need a Re-Spray within 14 days at a addition cost to control the breeding cycle.
Natraspray will then return within 14 days of the first initial treatment and use a product formulated in a gel and applied as drops to carefully selected areas.
Cockroaches are attracted to the gel and feed upon it.
It is also taken back to their hiding places where other cockroaches consume it and die soon afterwards, this bait can only be applied by a licensed pest technician.
Natraspray choose not to apply the gel with the spray, as the spray is a deterrent, where the gel is an attractant, therefore contradicting themselves.
The gel can be used alone, but will take some months to kill most cockroaches present.
It is recommended to use a vacuum cleaner for the kitchen cupboards, as cockroaches can survive on small amounts of food which may be left after sweeping or wiping.
It is best to clean out your microwave, toaster and oven / stove after use. It is also recommended to clean up any dead cockroaches.
A flea cycle can last up to 3 weeks, so expect to experience fleas over this period.
When we spray, we kill all the adult fleas, however, any flea eggs present will continue to hatch over this period.
Once they come in contact with our product they will begin to die.
When a flea problem exist within your home, the fastest possible elimination of all fleas is desirable.
To help speed up this process it is recommended that you go over any carpeted / wood floor boards or rugs etc.
with a broom or similar item, a few days after spraying.
This simulates vibrations such as those caused by passing animals.
These vibrations encourage the fleas to hatch.
The sooner this happens the faster all fleas are eliminated from your home.
When we have treated your home for ants we can eliminate the majority of them, but we cannot guarantee TOTAL elimination due to the nature of the insect, therefore, expect to see a few from time to time.
We might be able to control one ant nest but think how many nest's are around your home, controlling them all is almost impossible at present.
Redback spiders (Latrodectus hasselti) belong to the Family Theridiidae, which is found worldwide.
The notorious Black Widow Spider (Latrodectus sp) of the United States is a close relative of the redback spider, and only differs in appearance by the absence of a red dorsal stripe.
Other species of Latrodectus occur in Africa, New Zealand (the Katipo), the Pacific Islands, Europe and North and South America.
Female redback spiders are black (occasionally brownish) with an obvious orange to red longitudinal stripe on the upper abdomen, with the red stripe sometimes being broken, and an "hourglass" shaped red/orange spot on the underside of the abdomen.
Juveniles have additional white markings on the abdomen.
Females have a body about the size of a large pea and slender legs.
The males' red markings are often less distinct.
The body is light brown with white markings on the upper side of the abdomen, and a pale hour-glass marking on the underside.
Lepisma saccharina, frequently called silverfish, fishmoths, carpet sharks, or paramites, are small, wingless insects in the order Thysanura.
Its common name derives from the animal's silvery light grey and blue colour, combined with the fish-like appearance of its movements.
Silverfish consume matter that contains polysaccharides, such as starches and dextrin in adhesives.
These include glue, book bindings, paper, photos, sugar, coffee, hair, carpet, clothing and dandruff.
Silverfish can also cause damage to books and tapestries.
Other substances that may be eaten include cotton, linen, silk and synthetic fibres, and dead insects or even its own exuvia (moulted exoskeleton).
During famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics.
Silverfish can live for a year or more without eating.
Bedbugs are small, elusive, and parasitic insects of the family Cimicidae.
They live strictly by feeding on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded animals.
The name 'bed bug' is derived from the insect's preferred habitat infesting houses and especially beds or other common areas where people may sleep.
Bedbugs, though not strictly nocturnal, are mainly active at night and are capable of feeding unnoticed on their hosts.
Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the super family Muroidea.
"True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.
Many members of other rodent genera and families are also referred to as rats, and share many characteristics with true rats.
Rats are typically distinguished from mice by their size; rats are generally large muroid rodents, while mice are generally small muroid rodents.
The muroid family is very large and complex, and the common terms rat and mouse are not taxonomically specific.
Generally, when someone discovers a large muroid, its common name includes the term rat, while if it is small, the name includes the term mouse.
Scientifically, the terms are not confined to members of the Rattus and Mus genera, for example, the pack rat and cotton mouse.
A mouse (plural: mice) is a small mammal belonging to the order of rodents.
The best known mouse species is the common house mouse (Mus musculus).
It is also a popular pet.
In some places, certain kinds of field mice are also common.
This rodent is eaten by large birds such as hawks and eagles.
They are known to invade homes for food and occasionally shelter.
The American White-footed Mouse (Peromyscus leucopus) and the deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), as well as other common species of mouse-like rodents around the world, also sometimes live in houses.
These, however, are in other genera.
Cats, wild dogs, foxes, birds of prey, snakes and even certain kinds of arthropods have been known to prey heavily upon mice.
Nevertheless, because of its remarkable adaptability to almost any environment, the mouse is one of the most successful mammalian genera living on Earth today.
Mice can at times be harmful rodents, damaging and eating crops, causing structural damages and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces.
In North America, breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse excrements has been linked to hantavirus, which may lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS).
