We will share some preventive tips in this article.
One of the key factors to prevent infestation of cockroaches in your household is elimination of all possible sources of food, so they would go away and barely survive if they stay inside your house. When it comes to preventing invasion of cockroaches, it is important to apply good sanitation practices such as vacuuming all rooms, vacuuming kitchen floors every night, wiping kitchen countertops, storing food in sealed containers, emptying food containers, emptying cabinets, cleaning floors, limiting food consumption into one room, cleaning of kitchen appliances, and keeping trash cans away. You have to clean all kitchen appliances underneath, on the sides, behind, and all spaces of your kitchen from food spills and grease. Focus on the major sources of food crumbs such as the kitchen sink, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster, stove, and the microwave. Have a strict rule at home to only eat food in one area, and avoid eating inside the bedrooms for easy cleaning of food crumbs and spills. Don’t allow cockroaches to feast on unwashed dishes and dirty floors, have a daily habit to clean your kitchen and dining area rigorously before sleeping. At least every two to three days, you have to vacuum all rooms to ensure that you get rid of all feces, skins, eggs sacs, and body parts of cockroaches. It is important to wipe all surfaces with the use of a disinfectant spray or a cleaning detergent and water solution every night because cockroaches just love smelling and having a grand feast on these areas filled with food scents.
It is best to always use a trash can with a lid that is tightly fit, and be sure to trash each night our of the house to prevent attracting cockroaches. Be careful when mopping the floor because it may push small crumbs and other materials into crevices, cracks and creating tile build up that cockroaches love. Water accumulation may attract cockroaches, so be sure to repair any leaky pipes and faucets, fix sweating pipes, and dry all sinks using a paper towel. Make sure that all pet water dishes must be placed outside the house overnight or you need to dry them completely, and just refill them every morning.
