Australia could be set for a cockroach explosion.

According to News.com.au, pest companies have seen a 30 per cent increase in requests to exterminate the critters this year.

Unusually hot and dry weather patterns across the country have created ideal breeding conditions.

 

At the moment, Queensland is the worst affected but other states are certainly not out of the woods.

Experts recommend keeping surfaces clean, fixing leaky pipes and checking wall cavities and roof voids that are perfect breeding spots.
