I don’t have to tell you that cockroaches are gross, it’s common knowledge. It’s also a well-known fact that getting rid of cockroaches for good can be extremely challenging.
Many people believe that squashing cockroaches cause them to release their eggs. But, this is not entirely true. If a cockroach was close to laying eggs, and the eggs weren’t crushed in the process, it is possible for them to hatch even if the host is dead. If the eggs are too premature, they will simply die without hatching.
How to Get Rid of Cockroaches Quickly
Storebought chemicals aren’t nearly as effective as the ones pest control specialists use. If you want to completely rid your home of these nasty critters, it’s best to get help from exterminators like The Pest Control Pros.
Additionally, you should clean your home thoroughly, especially the kitchen. Cockroaches are always searching for food, and if your kitchen is full of scraps and crumbs, they’ll want to move in. Keep your kitchen clean by sweeping and mopping it regularly. And use an antibacterial cleaner to wipe surfaces.
Make sure you take out the trash regularly since it’s just another food source they can sink their proverbial teeth into.
You’ll want to eliminate water sources since cockroaches need them to survive. Without water, they won’t last a week. Common water sources are leaky sinks and pipes, as well as, pet water bowls.
Finally, you need to seal possible entry points. Cockroaches are small and don’t need big spaces to enter your home. Look for gaps around pipes, baseboards, windows and doors and seal them. Make sure to check them regularly to lower the risk of another infestation.
