    Default Cockroach help!

    The other day I saw a cockroach in the house so bought those black square baits that you put around the kitchen, bathroom etc.
    Fast forward 3 weeks (?) later and I've found 4 really little cockroaches in the last week in ONE area of my kitchen, just on my kitchen bench. I have no idea where they are coming from!
    What do I do from here??
    I'm in Melbourne.

    Get your house sprayed. Either professionally or you can buy DIY stuff from Bunnings. We get roaches all the time and the only thing that works is spraying the house. Usually once every 12 months or so.

    Get it sprayed professionally. They will usually give a 6 month guarantee

    Get someone in. If you've found a few it usually means there are hundreds! 😨

    If they're little ones they're most likely German cockroaches and really hard to get rid of by yourself. Filthy little buggers. Time to call the professionals!

    Yeh the pest control only gives 3 month warranty on the small ones but 12 months on big ones.
