Cockroaches are extremely filthy creatures and they are disease-carriers too. Aside from this, they also breed at a very rapid pace; and while the infestation may start in the kitchen and bathroom areas, it can quickly spread to all the other areas of your home too. The best way to get rid of the problem is to nip it in the bud. The experts at Forensic Pest Control have outlined the different methods used in cockroach control:
- Inspect – Look around for signs such as dead cockroaches or droppings. It’s a good idea to position some bait traps in the rooms where you suspect these creatures are breeding and living. Check these sticky traps regularly and if you don’t find any cockroaches captured there, place the traps in another location in your home.
- Sanitation– These pests eat just about anything and they live and breed anywhere. They are also able to survive on very little amounts of food and water for a long span of time. They live off food crumbs, shreds in empty food containers and dirty dishes, water leaks/drips and in recycles too. They live wherever they find any clutter, boxes, bags or paper piles. This is why sanitation becomes a very important aspect of cockroach control. Keep all the areas of your home clean and clear of clutter; don’t keep any open food containers anywhere in the house and empty out all the indoor trash regularly.
- Keep them out– These are extremely flat creatures and can crawl in to your home through the smallest of crevices and cracks. This makes it important to caulk all the cracks, repair baseboards, add weather-stripping and limit harbourage. In addition, since these creatures can sneak into your home in used clothing and furniture, bags etc., it’s important to check all these things before you bring them into your home.
- Chemical Controls– You will find a number of cockroach sprays, dusts and baits on the market; however they need to be used correctly in order to be effective. Unfortunately, cockroaches have also developed immunity to many of these chemicals and these stay effective for a very short period of time.
