If cockroaches are causing you a problem, Council may be able to help by spraying the manholes surrounding your property.
Particularly in the summer months cockroaches can be a major problem in the home. If you are having a problem with cockroaches Council will fumigate up to five (5) manholes in the vicinity of your property. This is a free service provided by Council. This work is carried out by a private contractor once they receive direction from Council.
Keep in mind Council will only fumigate manholes once a year. Fumigation of the manholes will not kill all of the cockroaches, only the majority of those in the manhole at the time of fumigation. To properly treat cockroaches it is recommended to have your property treated at the same time at your own expense.
