This article will give you tips to control cockroaches.

Cockroaches enter the house in the following ways-

• Through cracks around the doors and windows

• Through openings around the sewer pipes and drain pipes

• Through the grocery bags that we bring home.

• Through other products that we bring home like box, purses etc.

Controlling cockroach infestation in houses is essential keeping in mind the amount of damage that they can cause and threaten the health safety to your family. Below are some important and easy tips mentioned to keep the cockroaches away from your home in order to prevent them from causing any damage -

Tips to prevent the cockroach infestation

• First of all block all the entry points of the cockroaches by sealing the cracks around the windows and doors and the openings around the sewer and drainage pipes.

• Keep your surroundings clean and dry especially the kitchen.

• Clean all the dishes before bedtime and if the dishes are going to be kept for washing in the morning then make sure the dishes are kept in sink and they are kept in warm soapy water.

• Avoid leaving the food open for all night long. Open food may prove to be a bait for the cockroaches.

• All the food items must be kept in seal packed containers. If possible use reusable containers.

• The cabinet shelves and drawers must be painted with enamel and kept clean on regular basis.

• Garbage disposal must be done in tightly covered containers and kept outside the house.

• Get rid of unused food and appliances.

Tips to eliminate the existing cockroaches

The most popular and honored method of cockroach control includes making a bait out of boric acid. Combine boric acid, wheat flour and water and knead the mixture to make the bait. The cockroaches eat the mixture and die after some days.

Make use of repellants available in the market and spray them on the probable infested areas of cockroaches.

Arrange for a reliable pest control service that can provide the best herbal pest control services or chemical pest control based on your choice. (Keep this bait out of the reach of children and pets)
