Best method to control cockroaches

Control of cockroaches involves both elimination, and prevention.  You can eliminate cockroaches by using cockroach traps, bait, dusts, glue boards and monitors,  aerosols, and sprays

You can help prevent cockroaches by making your home as unattractive as possible to cockroaches by removing their sources of food.  

Every day, make it a habit to:

  • Clean up dishes in the sink (do not let them sit dirty overnight)
  • Take out garbage
  • Discard uneaten pet food and wash bowls
  • Remove food from counters and store in sealed containers or the refrigerator
  • Sweep, vacuum and mop up crumbs and spills on floors and countertops
  • Clean appliances of grease and spilled foods
  • Get drains squeaky clean by using Invade Hot Spot+ foaming drain cleaner 
  • Reduce clutter so roaches have fewer places to hide

 

Prevent cockroaches from getting into your home or business:
  • Use copper mesh to seal large cracks or openings around pipes
  • Use caulk to fill smaller gaps in the kitchen and bathroom
  • Install door sweeps to form a seal between the door and the threshold
  • Fix leaky pipes, faucets or cracked shower doors to reduce the moisture that cockroaches need to survive
  • Thoroughly inspect items and packaging before bringing them inside
  • Ask guests or employees to stow their belongings in plastic bins
