Hospitality Pest Control for cockroaches in North Western Sydney
Do you have a cockroach problem in your hospitality business premises?
EVO Pest Control can safely and effectively get rid of cockroaches in your restaurant, café, bar, hotel, motel, hostel, resort, bed and breakfast, serviced apartment or nightclub.
In a hospitality environment, cockroaches pose a particular danger, with an infestation having the potential to harm your business, your reputation, your clients and your health.
Cockroaches are not only one of the most common pests in Australia, they are also one of the most unhygienic, able to spread disease by passively transporting microbes on their body surfaces – including some that are potentially dangerous to humans – and transferring these germs onto people.
Because their natural homes include rubbish, dirt and rotting vegetation, cockroaches readily pick up germs from these areas. They then walk over or through food, cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment, pantries and tables, as well as infiltrating appliances, wardrobes, linen cupboards, storage areas and drains.
Cockroaches can trigger allergic reactions, and may carry allergens found to be linked with asthma, and bacterial diseases spread by cockroaches include salmonellosis, gastroenteritis and hepatitis A.
The three main types of cockroach in Australia are the German Cockroach, Australian Cockroach and the American Cockroach.
The German Cockroach is one of the smallest of the cockroaches and is probably the most commonly found species inside buildings. Adults are 12 to 15 millimetres long, are a light amber/brown colour and have two dark stripes on the head. German cockroaches are mostly found in and around kitchens, pantries, storerooms and other food handling areas. They prefer to be near food, moisture and warmth. They do not fly.

The Australian Cockroach is larger (30 to 35 millimetres) and is able to fly. It is dark brown with clearly defined yellow markings on the head and the front wings. This cockroach prefers plant food and is usually found outdoors. For example, under the bark of trees and among woodpiles.

The American Cockroach is one of the largest of the cockroaches (30 to 45 millimetres). It is red brown in colour with a pale yellow border around the head and it can fly. The American Cockroach prefers warm and moist conditions. It is a very widespread pest which lives in wall and roof cavities, sewers, drains, cellars, grease traps and rubbish dumps. It can be found around any food preparation area.

How can you tell if you have a cockroach infestation in your hospitality premises or business?
The most obvious sign of cockroach infestation – and the most damaging for a hospitality enterprise – is visible insects. Although these may seem to be few in number initially, visible cockroaches – even just a few – are a sign that more are hiding in and around your premises.
Cockroach faeces will also be visible during an infestation. Small roaches produce faeces that resemble coffee grounds or black pepper, while larger roaches expel cylindrical droppings. The quantity of visible faeces is often a good indicator of the level or duration of infestation.
The bodies of dead cockroaches may also be found throughout the premises. Oval-shaped egg cases are also sometimes visible behind furniture and in other hidden locations, such as the spaces between books.
How to keep cockroaches under control in your hospitality environment
There are many ways to help prevent cockroach infestation in your environment. Education of staff is paramount – and best practice for food handling and storage, high standards of regular cleaning, efficient and thorough waste disposal and regulation storage of food items are all vital to minimise the chances of an infestation.
If you believe that you have identified a cockroach infestation within your restaurant, café, bar, hotel, motel, hostel, resort, bed and breakfast, serviced apartment or nightclub, contact EVO Pest Control now for a fast, professional, safe and environmentally responsible solution.
