What are the most common Cockroaches found on New Zealand properties?

Cockroaches are a common pest in many properties in New Zealand. The two most frequently encountered species are the American cockroach and the German cockroach.

  • The American cockroach is a large, reddish-brown species that can often be found in commercial properties like restaurants and grocery stores. They thrive in warm and moist environments and can quickly reproduce, leading to a large infestation.
  • The German cockroach is a smaller, light brown species that is commonly found in households. They also prefer warm and moist environments and can quickly multiply if left unchecked.

Both types of cockroaches can cause damage to properties and spread diseases. Both species can be found in and around homes, typically hiding in dark and moist areas like kitchens and bathrooms.


If you suspect you have a cockroach infestation, it’s important to take action to eliminate them before they multiply and spread

What damage can Cockroaches cause if left unchecked?

Cockroaches can cause a number of problems for properties.

  • They are known to carry diseases such as salmonella and E. coli, which can be transmitted to humans through contaminated food or surfaces.
  • Cockroaches also have a distinct, unpleasant odor that can linger in a home long after the insects have been eliminated.
  • In addition, their feces and molted skins can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms in some people.
  • Furthermore, they have been known to cause structural damage to homes by chewing on paper products, books, and even wallpaper.

To protect your property from the damaging effects of cockroaches, it’s important to take proactive steps to minimise their presence.

What can I do to keep Cockroaches at bay?

Here are some tips to help minimise the presence of cockroaches on your property:

  • Keep your home clean and free of food scraps and crumbs.
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Fix any leaks or moisture issues to eliminate potential breeding grounds.
  • Seal cracks and crevices in your home’s foundation, walls, and windows to prevent cockroaches from entering.
  • Use bait stations and insecticides to target cockroaches where they hide.
  • Regularly vacuum and sweep your home to remove any eggs or debris that might attract cockroaches.

By following these steps, you can make your home less appealing to cockroaches and prevent their populations from growing.

Where can Cockroaches be found on my property?

Cockroaches can be found in a variety of places both inside and outside of properties.


Indoors, they are often found in dark, damp and warm environments such as bathrooms, kitchens, basements and other areas where food and water are readily available. They are also commonly found in cracks and crevices in walls and flooring.


Outside, cockroaches can be found in areas such as gardens, woodpiles, compost bins and garbage cans where they feed on organic matter. They are also known to enter properties through gaps or cracks in the building structure.


It’s important to be mindful of these areas and keep them clean and free of any food and water sources to discourage cockroach activity.
