The German cockroach (Blattella germanica) is a small species of cockroach, measuring about 1.3 cm (0.51 in) to 1.6 cm (0.63 in) long; however, they are known to get bigger. It can be tan through brown to almost black, and has two dark parallel streaks running from the head to the base of the wings. Although it has wings, it is unable to sustain flight. The German cockroach is omnivorous and a scavenger. They particularly like starch, sugary foods, grease and meats. In certain situations where there is a shortage of foodstuffs, they may eat household items such as soap, glue and toothpaste. Recommend service: German Cockroach Service.

Huntsman Spider

As adults, the huntsman spider does not build webs, but hunt and forage for food. Their diet consists primarily of insects and other invertebrates, and occasionally small skinks and geckos. (Oh no). They live in the crevices of tree bark, but will frequently wander into homes and vehicles. This is usually the case with large trees that hang over domestic properties.  The Huntsman Spider are able to travel extremely fast, often using a springing jump while running, and walk on walls and even on ceilings. They also tend to exhibit a “cling” reflex if picked up, making them difficult to shake off and much more likely to bite. Recommend service: General Insect Treatment.
