Do you have cockroaches running around your home?


In the dead of night cockroaches will come out of their hidey-holes and will gobble up anything in their sights.


Not many people know that cockroaches will not only eat the crumbs that they find but they will also munch on electrical cables, papers, hair, decaying matters and other organisms.


It is true that cockroaches can go around a month without food but cannot survive without water for about a week.


So what can our clients expect from cockroach control from Redline Pest Control?


Redline Pest Control will firstly inspect your premises to find out what species of cockroaches you have.


Once identified Redline Pest Control will treat those affected areas.

German cockroaches are the little goldy brown cockroaches. They will usually start off in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry areas as these areas are dark and moist. Once an infestation starts growing and harbourage places become over crowded the German cockroaches will spread to other areas of your home.


So what do we do to get rid of those dirty little cockroaches?


First and foremost the technician will access the level of infestation. The technician will spray the skirting boards and place a gel in the hinges of cabinets in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry, any electrical appliances and high risk areas.


Large cockroaches:
