Keeping cockroaches out of the kitchen
Fix plumbing leaks and control moisture in your home with a dehumidifier.
Cover rubbish and compost in bins or sealed bags rather than letting it pile up.
Always clean up at the end of every day and store all food inside sealed containers; if there’s no food or water handy cockroaches will move on to another unsuspecting home.
There are some tried and true ways to get rid of them if prevention doesn’t work.
Supermarkets, hardware stores and garden centres stock various DIY pest control products.
If cockroaches are really causing you grief though – or you believe you have an infestation on your hands – find a good local pest control company to save the day.
The experts get rid of the problem and also also aim to stop it occurring again.
Cockroaches aren’t the nicest creatures, but fortunately there are ways to control their impact on your dayto-day life.
The worst thing you can do is back away with fingers crossed – hoping they’ll find their own way outside!
Cockroaches are born survivors intent on making your house home.
