Cockroach Problems

Why Cockroaches Come In

In order to understand what is necessary to get rid of cockroaches, it is important to understand why roaches come into a home. If you were to say food, you would be partly right. Food plays a major part. But you can get rid of all the food inside your home and still have cockroaches. Protecting your food will not get rid of cockroaches. It can, however, deter them.

Okay. So what works to get rid of cockroaches? It has to do with the other reason cockroaches come into a home: harborage. Roaches invade your home simply because it is a place to hide. The only way to effectively get rid of them is to stop cockroaches from coming in and then deal with the roaches that have already gotten in.

DIY Cockroach Solutions

If you don't have cockroaches in your home yet, these tips can actually prevent an infestation from occurring. If you're already dealing with cockroaches, the following tips will only help to reduce the problem.

Deal With The Roaches Inside

Once you've sealed your walls, reduced attractants, and made it harder for cockroaches to find a bite of food inside your home, it is time to deal with the roaches that have gotten inside. We don't give suggestions on this step because the use of baits and chemicals inside a home can be hazardous to pets, children, and adults. For this step, it is best to contact a pest control company.
