Keep Cockroaches Out of Your Home With These 5 Tips

Cockroaches are among the worst kind of home infestations one would not wish upon their enemy! These critters have a better chance of survival than humanity or any other animal. While they are capable of surviving a nuclear blast, you need not live with them. You could easily keep cockroaches out of your home with these tips mentioned below:

Garbage Disposal

Ensure that you do not have an open garbage bin or overstocked garbage shelf. Keep a proper dust bin with lids or segregate waste items. Ensure that you dispose of the garbage at regular intervals and maintain hygiene. If you segregate garbage items to take out later, please clean that space at the end of the day.

Avoid Leftovers or Food Crumbs

Cockroaches are found near the kitchen. Mostly because of the food leftovers or crumbs. Ensure cleanliness in the kitchen. Wipe the floor and the kitchen table after cooking. Wherever you eat at home, make sure you clean afterwards to avoid attracting cockroaches and pests.

Wash Dishes

Dirty dishes could easily become the breeding ground for cockroaches. Do not leave it unattended overnight or for a day or two. It is a healthy practice to wash the dishes immediately after eating. Also, clean any kitchenware or plate, utensils used while dining.

Look for Hiding Spots

Look for any old items in your storage area. It could be a bunch of files lying around the house, grocery bags or cardboard boxes. Get rid of these items. Also, dark and warm places are convenient for cockroaches. Some of the spots could be:

  • Cabinets and Drawers
  • Trash Cans
  • Behind the Tiles
  • Toilets, Showers and sinks
  • Vents and Shafts
  • Store Rooms, Attics or Basement
  • Sewers and Pipes
  • Home appliances and Unused electronic items

Boric Acid

Boric acid is quite effective against cockroaches. Dust it around the house in corners or specific places. The cockroaches would come in contact with it and die. As a precaution, please keep it away from children and pets and store it separately. Sometimes you can use it as a paste by adding some flour and sugar to attract the cockroach. Other than the methods mentioned above, you could also try and use pesticides.
