Australian Cockroach

Roaches Multiply Fast

Just 10 female cockroaches to produce some 4,000 young. Consider also how quickly the offspring will mature and produce their own cockroach progeny! It stands to reason that leaving nature to control cockroach numbers is a fool's errand…

If you see one cockroach, you haven’t seen them all… It’s generally understood that seeing one usually means there are probably hundreds or even thousands more of them hiding away somewhere close by.

The reason that your home or business property can end up with thousands of cockroaches will be no surprise to any Gold Coast home owner… cockroaches are notorious for their prolific breeding.

Cockroaches mature quickly and females begin to reproduce like there’s no tomorrow. Hundreds of young can hatch in a very short time.

A single female will produce as many as 50 eggs at a time. In her lifespan she will do so between four and eight times. So the numbers grow exponentially.

Simple maths shows us that it would take just 10 female cockroaches to produce some 4,000 young. And, if that’s not jaw-dropping enough, consider how quickly the offspring will mature and produce their own cockroach progeny!

It stands to reason that leaving nature to control cockroach numbers is a fool’s errand. You could take them on yourself with a number of store-bought “miracle” cures.

On the other hand, it’s unlikely you will ever be sorry for calling the best cockroach exterminator on the Gold Coast: Richards Pest Control. You will get a 12 month warranty on large cockroach treatments and we guarantee total annihilation of the most troublesome species, the German cockroach.
