Roaches are one of the toughest pests to eliminate from Florida homes. They have survived for hundreds of thousands of years because of their resilience to destruction and pesticides. However, if you educate yourself on the problem and work with an experienced exterminator, you may be able to find an easy solution to your roach problem.
Some roach facts to be aware of:
While you should always contact pest control professionals if you have an active infestation of cockroaches, there are steps you can take to prevent cockroaches from gaining entry to your home or business.
Store dry foods in tightly sealed containers or plastic bags and do not leave food sitting out on counters. Do not leave liquids in sinks or buckets.
Clean up food debris from food preparation areas, under sinks and appliances. Empty garbage cans on a daily basis and keep all garbage or compost in sealed bins. Rinse cans, bottles, and plastics before putting them in recycling bins.
Remove old stacks of newspapers, magazines, cardboard boxes and all other forms of clutter from the floor or bottom of cupboards. Varnish or paint wood shelves to seal them, and wipe them clean regularly.
Seal entry points to deny access to cockroaches. Key risks are gaps around pipes, drains and common walls with neighboring properties. Tiny cracks around skirting boards and behind electrical sockets should also be plugged.
