When your home is overrun with cockroaches, it makes your skin crawl. The thought of those disgusting pests taking over your home is the subject of nightmares. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take long for a couple of cockroaches to turn into many more. Not only that, if you are noticing their presence during the day, there are sure to be many more where that came from when the lights go out. Animal Pest Management Services, Inc. is here to talk about how to handle a heavy roach infestation and what you can do to avoid them all together.
Found One Cockroach in House? Identifying a Roach Problem
Cockroaches are very easily identified. They have a long oval body that ranges from black to light brown. Their spiny legs and the quick way they get from point A to point B is hard to miss. The thing about cockroaches is, the fact that you are actually seeing one means that there are many more where that came from. They reproduce at an alarming rate and can take over your home in no time. If you are suspecting a roach problem, get out your flashlight and search your home without turning on the lights since they will run and hide when the lights come on.
Finding & Sealing Main Points of Roach & Pest Entry
This can be a difficult task. Finding the entry points around your home and sealing them is important when trying to avoid a cockroach problem. They will be able to snake through any small cracks in your foundation or around your pipes. They often are in search of a water supply so any leaking pipes may be attracting them. The sooner you seal your home, the sooner your roach problem will be no more.
Keep Food Stored Properly to Prevent Pest Infestations
Food and water are the main attractants for cockroaches. Leaving food out overnight rather than doing the dishes and not removing your trash regularly will all make your home more appealing to hoards of cockroaches. Store your food properly and avoid leaving it out for extended periods of time.
Severe Roach Infestation Treatment
If the cockroach infestation is a large one, you may have to treat your home more than once to completely get rid of them. Cockroaches are notorious for being very difficult to kill and so you shouldn’t be surprised if you have to treat your home at least two times to get rid of all of them.
