Seeing a cockroach in the home can be startling. A professional pest control company can help you remedy a cockroach problem, and this video by Pestworld has some great tips on easy things you can do to keep them from coming in.
Cockroaches are most commonly found in warm, humid locations in the home, which more often than not is in the kitchen or bathroom. They will feed off of anything, from crumbs of food to soap and toothpaste. Plus, they reproduce and multiply very quickly, so it’s easy for the problem to get out of hand fast.
The best way to prevent these pests is by practicing good sanitation: vacuum often, keep your kitchen clean and free of food debris, and ensure the area around utility pipes is sealed properly.
Plus, they are not just unsightly—they can cause health concerns too. Cockroaches are known for bringing in bacteria and are also known to cause allergies in humans, including asthma.
