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.
