Cockroach species

There are more than 4500 species of cockroaches in the world. Out of that number, around 450 are found in Australia. Thankfully, only a select few of them are called pests. The rest do not live near human habitat.

Three species are commonly found in Australian households: Australian cockroach, German cockroach, and the American cockroach.

What attracts cockroaches?

If your home offers warm and moist places to hide and there is a lot of food, then cockroaches will seek out that environment. You do not see them in the daytime as they are nocturnal creatures. However, if you see a few cockroaches in the daylight, it means their number has reached an alarming level.

Cockroaches are attracted to leftover food, meaning, it is essential to keep your kitchen clean. They can also hide in the drainpipes of the kitchen sink and washbasin.
