With autumn just a few days away what does that mean for pests entering your humble abode and how can you reduce the risk of pests entering your home?


Now is the time to protect your home with a long-lasting pest preventative treatment to keep those pesky pests away.


With pest it can be some time that you notice that there is an infestation as we slide into the cooler months pest to are looking for a nice warm spot to call their home and unfortunately that means our home is now theirs if we don’t get on top of it now.


Redline Pest Control always recommends our clients to go in and around their homes and look out for any gaping holes, cracks and crevices and seal them up, so pests have a much harder time entering your home.


Any over hanging branches will need to be cut so pests such as roof rats won’t be able to make your roof void their playground.


Autumns common pests!


When we think about pests we often think pests only come in the warmer months but in reality that is not true as pests are looking for shelter so they survive the cooler months and what is most annoying thing is that it is our homes that pests love to enter.


  • German cockroaches
  • Rodents – rats or mice
  • Termites
  • Spiders
  • Ants
  • Bed bugs
  • Birds

Where do pests love to live?


  • Termites – love to feast on wooden structures in and around your home
  • Garages
  • Roof voids
  • Subfloors
  • Pipes and drains
  • Kitchen cabinets
  • Storage rooms
  • Bedrooms
  • Bin areas
  • Clutter and boxes

Prevention is better than cure!


Redline Pest Control recommends preventative pest control to our clients which means get on top of it before it gets on top of you.


Kill pests before they get a chance to breed, therefore making infestations harder to get a hold of.


After your pest treatment has been carried out, what will happen and what should you do?


We often get calls from our clients stating that they are still seeing some pest activity after two weeks.


This is perfectly normal as we use a slow release chemical that allows the pests to come in contact with the chemical but once they do the chemical will attack their nervous system and they will die off, we ask our clients to wait six weeks and if they are still seeing an influx of pests then to give us a quick call where we can discuss what would be the next step to take.


For spider treatments we will advise you to leave the webs there for roughly seven days then knock the webs down that way we know that we are getting a hold of the spiders as they love to hide when a treatment has been carried out.


With ants they will need to take the chemical back to the nest so the queen can digest the bait once this happens you will notice that that they will die off but then spew out as the queen has died and there is no queen to give them signals to forage for food or defend their colony. Once they spew out and come in contact with the chemical they will die.

Latin name – Blattella Germanica


When a client calls me, I go through my usually spiel of what their property is like and what pests they have.


When asking if a client has German cockroaches, some don’t know the difference as a cockroach is a cockroach and they just want that damn cockroach gone and dusted out of their home.


So, what does a German cockroach look like?


How to get rid of German cockroaches

  • Colour of German Cockroaches: Adults are easily recognised by their goldy brown to tan in colour body with two black horizontal stripes located behind their head. Nymphs are darker in colour and look like a bug of some sort.
  • Size of German Cockroaches: Adult German cockroaches grow to roughly the length of 13-16 mm is size. While they have wings, they prefer to scurry around than fly about.


Help, how to get rid of German cockroaches?


Unfortunately, German cockroaches are imported into your home whether you bought a box or bag inside that may have had a live German cockroach or the Ootheca (egg casing).


If you live in residential apartments they can travel between units when infestations occur.


All you need in one ootheca to start an infestation forming in your property. For every female German cockroach, she will have roughly forty to fifty baby cockroaches and before you know it an infestation of German cockroaches can get out of hand.


What do German cockroaches eat?


German cockroaches love when we don’t wipe down our tables, benchtops and stove tops, they will feast on just about anything and everything when we don’t clean up each day.


That being said, German cockroaches will also feast on paper, electrical appliances. Toothpaste, soap, dead cockroaches and bugs.


When are German cockroaches most active?


They are a nocturnal insect and will usually come out of their harbourage spots at night-time once everything has settled down for the night. If you are seeing German cockroaches in the day it is an indication that you have a high infestation of German cockroaches and a treatment is need ASAP.


Lifecycle of German cockroaches.

Adult German cockroaches live to around 28 weeks and can reproduce up to six ootheca over their lifespan. For every female German cockroach, she will have between forty to fifty baby cockroaches at any given time. The Life Cycle repeats every six weeks therefore not getting the German cockroaches treated by a professional can be quite costly in the long run.


Preparation before Redline Pest Control comes to your home

How to get rid of German cockroaches


  • Cleaning of the kitchen is a must. Wipe down all surfaces such as benchtops and stove tops, moping, a good clean behind the fridge, wipe out the microwave and dishwasher.
  • Remove all clutter such as papers, boxes and plastic bags, to minimise anywhere German cockroaches can hide and breed.
  • If the problem exists outside of your kitchen you will need to make sure that a through clean is taken care of and all clutter is removed as this is the perfect breeding ground for German cockroaches to breed and explode with an infestation.

What can you expect from your German cockroach treatment?


  • First week of your German cockroach treatment you should see around 80% of German cockroaches die.
  • Six weeks after your initial German cockroach treatment you should not have any German cockroaches unless the infestation of German cockroaches is quite high. If the infestation is high you will be told you need a second service at six weeks to kill the breeding cycle.
  • If you still see German cockroaches after six weeks don’t panic call Redline Pest Control, we provide six months warranty for low to medium infestations. if Redline Pest Control are to come out under a warranty period, we will send out the same technician to your home to treat the affected areas.
