Spring Pests: Cockroaches

We can all agree that nobody wants pests in the house. However, there are some pests, though, that fill us with dread more than others, and cockroaches definitely fall into that category. Even the thought of having cockroaches in the house can make a home feel unclean and less like home.

Why Do I Have Cockroaches?

Having cockroaches in the house isn’t necessarily a sign of an unclean home. They are much more common than people tend to think, and they get into homes and properties for different reasons. Sure, food and unclean areas can attract cockroaches and encourage them to stay, but that doesn’t mean they only live in filthy places. Essentially, cockroaches can get just about anywhere. The key to avoiding cockroaches in your house is prevention and quality pest control from a trusted expert.

Preventing Cockroaches

Cockroaches pose a real health danger to your home and family. They can carry dangerous diseases and bacteria, and they can exacerbate allergies and conditions like asthma. To protect your family, prevention is your first line of defense. Consider utilizing some of the tips below:

  • To prevent cockroaches from getting into your home, make sure cracks in outer walls and spaces around entrances are well sealed.
  • Store garbage and pet food in tight, air-sealed containers.
  • Inspect food containers for bugs before bringing them into the house.

How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Like many pests, cockroaches can be hard to get rid of, especially with store-bought treatment products. The most effective way to get rid of cockroaches and to keep them away is to call a professional. An experienced pest control expert knows where to look for cockroaches (they can be hard to find during the day) and has the professional-grade tools to get rid of them.
