As a Cockroach exterminator I know cockroaches are one of the most resilient insects of all times. They are said to have lived through the ice age. Here they are today. Infesting homes all across America. They have to be removed by a professional who has the right tools. Cockroaches are good at hiding in walls and cracks. You may not even know they’re there. Experts say that if you see just one roach in your house, about 800 could be nearby but out of sight.
Sanitation is a key part of keeping roaches out of your home and kitchens.
Seal all food in jars or plastic containers. If cockroaches don’t find anything to eat, they may go elsewhere.
Keep your kitchen and dining room clean. Vacuum and mop regularly. Wipe up spills and clean up crumbs right away.
Keep a lid on your kitchen trash.
Don’t leave your pet’s food out in a bowl.
Reduce clutter. Roaches can hide behind piles of newspapers or boxes. They may eat paper, too.
