How to Have a Cockroach Free Festive Season

Nobody wants unwelcome guests during the holidays, especially roaches! Because roaches are attracted to garbage, refuse, and food droppings, they can make even an immaculate home seem dirty.  They also spread diseases and contaminate food sources.  Keep your home clean and your guests comfortable by eradicating your pests, now.

Getting Rid of Cockroaches Starts with Prevention

As with most pests, the first component of cockroach eradication is prevention.  Cockroaches are attracted to food sources and available water.  Even if you have an immaculate home, your house may offer plenty of food for cockroaches.  That is because cockroaches are not picky eaters.  Sure, they will eat food off dirty dishes, the floor or countertops.  However, they will also eat things like toothpaste, soap, and book bindings.  Their omnivorous habits can make it difficult to eliminate all of their food sources.

However, it can be easier to eliminate their sources of water and is an important first step to helping get rid of cockroaches. For example, do you have any drips or leaks in your water pipes? If so, that can attract cockroaches to your home and should be dealt with immediately.

Cockroaches hide in dark spaces.  That can make them difficult to find and seemingly impossible to kill. However, Flick knows how to find where roaches may be hiding.  Our trained technicians know to look in cockroach hiding spots, which can help them identify living spaces.
