How to Keep Roaches Out

Seeing cockroaches crawling across your floors can send you into a panic. Not only can roaches spread disease, but they’re one of the most common reasons for household allergies, second only to dust. Getting rid of cockroaches in your home can be a long and grueling process, as these bugs are quite resilient. A better method is to prevent roaches from ever entering your house with the following tidy cockroach control tips.

Tips to Keep Cockroaches Out of Your Home

Here are some tips on how to keep roaches out:

  • Seal it up. One way that’s sure to keep bugs of any kind out of your home is sealing up all cracks and crevices. Pay careful attention to any areas of exposure that might have formed near where you store your food. Bathrooms, windows, and doors and also good places to look for signs of cockroach activity.
  • Keep it clean. Roaches are attracted to food. Leaving crumbs in your kitchen or wherever you eat will greatly increase your chances of attracting roaches. Make sure to vacuum and sweep regularly, clean up your food thoroughly after you eat, and try not to eat in areas outside of your kitchen or dining room, as food can easily get stuck in the carpet.
  • Throw it out. If you’ve got any waste in your yard like decaying wood, branches or leaves, keep them as far away from your house as possible. Roaches like to hide in debris and lay eggs that will hatch and venture towards your home in no time.

The Problem with DIY Cockroach Removal

Once cockroaches gain access to your home, it’s hard to get them out with only DIY cockroach control methods. Roaches can reproduce at an alarming rate and will hide deep in your cupboards and walls. Store-bought traps and sprays may take care of a few roaches, but will not effectively solve your roach problem long term. By hiring a professional cockroach exterminator, you’ll quickly rid your home of the disgusting insects and regain the peace of mind that your home is once again pest free.
