Some Cockroach Prevention Tips

Recently I have been doing a kitten renovation for one of mine clint and run into a huge cockroach infestation problem when I had started removing kitchen cabinets. I notified the client about the problem and recommend them to call local pest control company, however they had a pretty tight budget and they asked me if I had an experience dealing with similar problems before which I had.

I had provided them with some useful tips and they were able to get rid of the problem with a few days that is why I decided to share to with you.  There are many measures you can try reduce the chance of your house being infringed by cockroaches. Here are some ideas to get started:

1. Garbage: take it out on a regular basis. If you’re placing food that is leftover in the garbage can, be sure you take it out every night. It is the primary place that cockroaches will attend try to find food.

2. Hoover: should you eat in a kitchen table, make sure it is swept under by you nightly. The carpet needs to be vacuumed every day at the same time, in the event you eat in your family room. A cockroach can survive on a little little bit of food, therefore it’s important to get every food particle removed. Don’t forget to vacuum your furniture at the same time. This provides an excellent location for cockroaches to track down a meal.

3. Cupboards: make sure you wipe your cupboards often down. Including wiping down appliances like ovens and toasters. Roaches will eat virtually anything, including these small crumbs.
4. Dishes: after eating constantly clean your dishes. Don’t leave them sitting out overnight.

5. Leftovers: make sure your leftovers as well as your fresh cooking supplies are kept in containers that are sealed.

6. Water: there should never be any kind of standing water in your house or flat. Roaches seek out a steady water source more which means to be able to prevent a cockroach infestation, this can be very significant.

7. All cracks needs to be filled in across the house. Caulk all the cracks in your cupboards up. It’s also advisable to wrap up your pipes and wires which are not in the house.
