Pest Free Tips
  • Cockroaches migrate easily through multi-unit dwellings via plumbing and electrical connections. Sealing gaps around plumbing, wall outlets and switch plates will prevent cockroaches from migrating from infested units to others.
  • Keep doors and windows closed and screened. Also, caulk cracks and gaps that may allow peridomestic cockroaches to invade from outdoors.
  • Peridomestic cockroaches frequently enter homes by coming up through dry drain traps. Periodically run the water in spare bathrooms, utility tubs and toilets to keep the drain trap filled and off limits to cockroaches.
  • Fiberglass window screen over vent pipes on the roof will prevent cockroaches from migrating up from sewer connections and gaining access to attics and windows.
  • Groceries, produce and other packaged food products may have been stored in infested locations before they were purchased. Make an effort to visibly scan all grocery items for cockroach evidence before putting them away.
  • Children can transport cockroaches from school to home in book bags and lunch pails. Inspect these items on a regular basis.
  • Guests (adults and children) can often transport cockroaches from their infested home to yours either on themselves or in packages. Limit guest access to specific areas of your home and inspect these areas after they depart.
  • German cockroaches can remain alive for approximately two weeks with no food or water and for 42 days if only water is available. Therefore it is important to realize that cockroaches can survive on tiny amounts of food such as crumbs, grease or food residue.
  • Indoor trash containers should be emptied frequently, kept clean both inside and out. Plastic bags lining trash containers can be kept closed with twist ties. This will prevent cockroaches from being attracted to the garbage area.
  • Filled indoor garbage containers should be removed from the dwelling immediately and placed in outdoor containers with tight fitting lids or dumpsters.
  • Keeping the area around dumpsters or other outdoor garbage storage areas clean and free of debris will also prevent peridomestic cockroach infestations in the area.
  • Frequent emptying of sink strainers and running of the garbage disposal and will prevent food build up in the sink drain.
  • Washing dishes immediately after a meal will eliminate prevent cockroaches from consuming food residue on dishes. Unwashed dishes are a major source of food for German cockroaches.
  • Kitchen appliances (toasters, toaster ovens, microwaves, ovens, stoves, and refrigerators) should be kept clean and free of food particles and grease. Additionally, the areas underneath and behind these appliances should be kept grease and crumb free.
  • If pets are present, dry food should be kept in resealable containers. Do not leave food and water out all the time.
  • Feed your pet at particular times and clean up after every meal.
  • All foods products should be resealed after opening, stored in plastic snap-lid containers or kept in the refrigerator.
  • Regular sweeping/vacuuming of floors and furniture where people eat (i.e. kitchen table or in the living room in front of T.V.) help to eliminate cockroach food sources.
  • Regular cleaning of food storage areas and shelves not only eliminates spilled or scattered food but disrupts cockroach populations that may be using the area as a harborage.
