Cockroach Prevention Tips

In order to fully eliminate and discourage cockroaches, your property must be completely clear of anything that resembles food, water, or shelter for cockroaches. They are incredible scavengers, and will eat almost anything, including paper and soap! Learn how to keep these filthy insects out of your home with our cockroach prevention tips.

Here are the basic steps Western Exterminator, formerly Hitmen recommends for keeping your property roach-free:

  • Eliminate Food Sources for Cockroaches: Roaches are attracted to fruits, vegetables, crumbs, and garbage. They can feast on all of this, and if you make it easy for them, they will be more than happy to do just that.
  • Sweep, mop, and Clean to Prevent Cockroaches: When you drop crumbs on the floor and leave them there, you’re basically inviting cockroaches to come to a free buffet.
  • Eliminate Hiding Places: Cockroaches will use anything for hiding, and they can fit into very small cracks. It’s important to seal cracks and eliminate clutter, boxes, and anything else that could provide a hiding spot.
  • Sprays or Chemicals: Boric acid and roach traps can help, but only when used with proper hygiene and exclusion practices. Sprays wear off quickly, and will not work by themselves.

When Cockroach Prevention Isn’t Enough – Call a Cockroach Exterminator

Cockroaches are worse than simply skin-crawling–they’re carriers of bacteria and pathogens. Because they’ll go anywhere and eat anything, roaches can pick up diseases and pathogens from the darkest places, scattering these dangers throughout your building.
