Despite its name, the Australian cockroach is not actually native to Australia at all. They tend to find home in areas that are not generally subject to extremely cold conditions in winter.

For large cockroaches, success in eradicating this pest involves treating all harbourage and pathway areas. These areas may include, roof voids, ceiling voids, wall cavities, kitchen cabinets, fridge motors, door frames, window frames, subfloor areas, internal perimeter of all rooms, external perimeter of building, external window & door frames, garages, carports, driveways, eaves, fence lines, pathways, garden beds, landscaping timbers, sandstone walls, external drains etc.

To help prevent cockroaches from entering your home or business, there are some steps you can take:

  • Keep food sources sealed in airtight packaging or containers, and don’t leave open food lying around.
  • Dispose of food waste in a timely manner, not leaving any leftovers out in the open. It is good to give your floors a sweep or quick vacuum after consuming a meal.
  • Empty your rubbish regularly.
  • Keep the sink clear of unclean dishes.
  • If you have pets, make sure that their food and water bowls are cleared before going to bed.

Permethrin Powders

Permethrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid family. Pyrethroids are synthetic chemicals that act like natural extracts from the chrysanthemum flower. Permethrin is used in a number of ways to control insects. Products containing permethrin may be used in public health mosquito control programs. They may be used on food and feed crops, on ornamental lawns, on livestock and pets, in structures and buildings, and on clothing. Permethrin may also be used in places where food is handled, such as restaurants. Permethrin was first registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) in 1979, and was re-registered in 2006.

If permethrin gets into the soil, it is broken down by microorganisms. Sunlight may also break down permethrin on the soil surface and on the surface of water. Permethrin does not mix well with water. When permethrin gets into surface water like lakes or streams, it sticks very strongly to sediment and can stay there for more than a year. Since permethrin sticks to sediment and does not mix well with water, it won’t usually contaminate groundwater. Permethrin does not evaporate very easily when it is applied to surfaces. Permethrin was applied indoors near a window in an experiment where it was exposed to daylight. After 20 days, 60% of the permethrin that was applied was still on the surface.

If permethrin is applied to plants, it may stay on the leaves for between 1 and 3 weeks. Scientists applied permethrin to soil and then planted sugar beets, wheat, lettuce and cotton in the soil. Scientists found trace amounts of the permethrin residue in the edible parts of the plants at 30 and 120 days after planting. Trace amounts of permethrin have been found in foods including bananas, collard greens, squash and watermelon. However, less than 1% of the more than 1,700 food samples tested had detectable levels of permethrin.


Pyrethrin’s are chemicals present in the flowers of specific species of chrysanthemums. They are classified as insecticides because they interfere with an insect’s nervous system. They have low toxicity in humans and other mammals. and do not last very long in the environment.


Pyrethroids are synthetic insecticides derived from pyrethrin. They last longer in the environment than pyrethrin. Different types of pyrethroids have been created. They have different characteristics and different degrees of toxicity.
