If you've never had a roach infestation before, you may not realize the pests can be difficult to eliminate. That's why it's best to take action as soon as you see a roach and take steps to prevent them. Here's a look at some roach control tips that might help and professional treatments you may need.
Leave Sticky Traps Around The Kitchen
When a roach infestation is small, you may never see the pests roaming around. Roaches often come out at night, so if you routinely see roaches during the day, you could have a big infestation. You can use roach traps to monitor the pests. Leave them in hidden places in your kitchen, such as under the kitchen sink, so you can catch roaches that stumble across them.
Sticky traps are good to use for monitoring since the roaches get stuck on them, and you'll be able to tell when roaches are in the house and whether you have a lot of them. The sticky traps don't have poison, so they won't be a danger to your pets, but you'll still want to place them where pets and kids can't get to the traps or dead roaches.
Seal Food And Clean Crumbs
Another important step is to take away food and water for the roaches. Roaches eat all kinds of things, so this includes getting rid of paper clutter around your home. Seal food in plastic or glass containers, don't leave food on the counter, sweep up crumbs, and don't leave out dirty dishes.
Roaches are attracted to moisture too, so fix water drips promptly, and keep the cabinets under your sink dry. By removing food, water, and clutter, there will be fewer resources for roaches to use to live and thrive in your house.
Have Scheduled Pest Control Treatments
When you have a roach problem, call a pest control company for a treatment. They can provide treatments that kill off a roach infestation, and once your home is free from the pests, they can provide preventative treatments that work to keep roaches away.
In extreme cases, you might need to have your home tented and fumigated to eliminate the roaches. The pest control company can advise you on the best way to get rid of the roaches quickly so the pests don't contaminate your home and so you don't have to be embarrassed by the sight of roaches crawling over your floors and up the walls.Share

After marrying my sweet husband ten years ago, I moved into a fixer-upper. I immediately started making a list of remodeling projects I wold need to complete before the house would be comfortable to live in. For instance, I had to rip out the old linoleum flooring in the kitchen, mud room, and bathrooms. I also had to buy a complete set of new furniture. Only a few days after moving into this house, I also discovered my need to contact a reputable pest control specialist. The house contained huge, disgusting roaches. After a local pest control technician visiting my house, my home was free of potentially health damaging roaches.
