Did you Know About These Roach Prevention Tips?

They can be a nasty reminder

Are you sharing office space with way too many people? Are you living in a house that is older than you? There may be more than just dust under those creaky old floor boards. There may be more than one sneaky co-worker who’s after those delicious leftovers you’ve been thinking about having for lunch. Unfortunately, pests are an unfortunate reality that everyone has to deal with. The amount of exposure that each person has with these pests, however, is completely up to those who occupy a home or business day in and day out. Because of this, prevention is key when keeping roaches at bay. Here are a few tips that EVERYONE should be using to ensure a roach-free zone:

  • Cleanliness is next to godliness! The old cliche runs very true with this one: roaches (and a lot of other pests) will target any sort of food source. These can include built up grease or residue from your kitchen appliances or crumbs that have been spilt from the dinner table.
  • They need water too! Like all living things: water is a vital source of a roach’s existence. This is why roaches are often found in the kitchen or bathroom areas inside homes and businesses. Make sure that there are no leaky pipes that will provide these pests with a consistent supply. Try to avoid leaving pets dishes out overnight. They’ll even go after a damp wash cloth in that kitchen sink of yours!
  • It’s your home, protect it!  To ensure that these roaches aren’t staying without paying rent you need to know where to look out for their hiding spots. Also, be sure to seal up any cracks or crevices to prevent entry and re entry. Make sure that all windows and doors remain shut firmly. Just like you and I, roaches will use a doorway too!
