Do Your Part To Prevent Roaches

 

Roach Prevention Tips

Even if you just see one roach, chances are you’ve got a big problem — you just don’t know it yet. The rest of them could be nesting somewhere dark and out of the way. A single roach can quickly reproduce into thousands.

Roaches nest where food and water is freely available. This is why they are most often found in kitchens and bathrooms, although when an infestation is bad enough they can be found anywhere in your house.

Roaches are notoriously hard to get rid of, so it’s best to not attract them in the first place. They need both food and water, just like everyone else, so making sure that all food is in sealed plastic containers and dirty dishes are not left out for more than a few minutes is very important.  They can only survive a week or so without water, so be sure to mop up spills and fix any leaking taps. Simple practices like this can keep you from attracting them.

You can also take steps to prevent roaches’ entry into your home. Inspect walls, windows, and doors for cracks and carefully seal them with caulk or foam insulation. This is fussy work, but it’s worth the effort to avoid roaches (it will help your heating and cooling bill, too).

Finally, if you already have roaches, you need to be both ruthless and diligent…and this entails hiring a professional. Unfortunately many people try fixing the problem themselves by just “spraying” and placing out a few roach traps for several months. In the long run, this can actually cost you more money and even endanger your family when chemicals aren’t placed properly.

If you don’t want the risk of spraying and the burden of emptying roach traps nightly for the next two months, call us. We have experience to use the right amount of chemicals, baits and traps, and we’ll provide prevention tips and recommendations. We’ll also visit periodically to make sure the problem stays gone.
