A-Tex Pest Management is here to share some tips to help you keep those pesky cockroaches out of your apartment for good.
Get Rid of Easy Food Sources for Cockroaches
Cockroaches are going to be most attracted to food. This is their number one concern. The best way to keep them out of your apartment is to limit their food source. The thing about cockroaches is, they aren’t picky eaters. They will literally eat every and anything they can get their hands on. It doesn’t matter if the food is fresh or rotten, salty or sweet, they will want to eat it. Keeping your home as clean as possible will help you get started in keeping cockroaches out of your home. You should be sweeping regularly to keep crumbs and other debris picked up. Keep track of your pantry and clean up any remnants of food that has possibly been left behind. Another thing to remember is to keep a lid on your trash. Removing your trash from your home regularly will help to limit the amount of rotten food is in your home attracting cockroaches.
Fix Leaks to Limit Cockroaches Water Source
The next thing cockroaches will be looking for is water. This is why kitchens and bathrooms are always a trouble area for cockroach activity. Cockroaches are naturally drawn to living in damp places and every single variety needs water to survive. If you have any leaking pipes or even faucets that have a constant drip, you should have them repaired right away to avoid cockroach infestations in your apartment.
Control Cockroaches Early
If you ever notice that there is a cockroach scurrying around your home, don’t be fooled. This won’t be the only cockroach that is lurking in your apartment. Where there is one, there is always an army elsewhere. You don’t notice that cockroaches are a big problem because most of the time, when you are awake, they are hiding. They are nocturnal and so they will be most active during the night. If you happen to see one during the day that means you have an infestation that is so large they don’t have anywhere to hide out. Cockroach activity in daylight hours is not a good sign.
