How to get rid of roaches

Cockroaches are one of the most common household pests. When you find cockroaches, you need to get rid of them right away. Before you call an 
Pest Control Scarborough, though, you might want to try getting rid of them yourself. Here are some things you can do to get rid of cockroaches and keep them from coming back.

How to rid your home of cockroaches

1. Tidy up your house.

Cockroaches and most other pests will be drawn to things like clutter, trash, and food that is left out. By keeping your home clean, you can keep cockroaches from coming in.

2. Get rid of any water that is sitting.

Cockroaches must have water to stay alive. By taking away this water, your chances of getting rid of them will go up. Make sure there is no water on the floors at all times. Also, make sure the sink, showers, and bathtub are dry after you use them.

3. Seal any cracks or holes that Pest Control Scarborough could use to get into your home. Check all the walls, floors, and doors for holes that cockroaches could use to get in. Use a caulking gun to fill in the cracks, and pay special attention to the baseboards and areas behind countertops. Seal any place where a pipe goes through the floor or wall. Do the same for the heating ducts.

If you don't have a caulking gun, you could cover the seals with duct tape. Cockroaches can get in through the bottom of the door, so putting a towel there may stop them from getting in.

4. Get a roach spray and put it at your home's entrances. Make sure to spray all the floors and walls, both inside and outside the house. This might keep cockroaches from coming back.

5. You might also want to set cockroach traps in a few key places around your house. Check your local grocery store for these traps, and put them in places like trash cans and sinks where you think cockroaches like to hang out. Do you need  Pest Control Scarborough then click link and contact us.
