Luckily, there are some steps you can take to ensure they don’t easily take over your home. Pre-Empt Pest Control is here to share some tips to help you keep cockroaches out of your Northwest Las Vegas home.
Keep Your House Clean to Keep Roaches Away
A clean home, is often a cockroach free home. They like clutter. They are always looking for places to hide during the day as they are nocturnal creatures. If you don’t have clutter around your home, they are less likely to feel comfortable there. They don’t appreciate the fact that they have to work harder at finding somewhere to hide out.
Get Rid of Cardboard Boxes to Keep Cockroaches Out
If you have plenty of newspapers and cardboard boxes lying around your home, this is a good time to get rid of them. Not only do these things allow them places to hide out, but they will also start to breed in boxes and newspapers. Without them around your home, you don’t have to worry about that.
Home Sealing for Pest Control
Cockroaches can squeeze through even the smallest of cracks in your home. IF you have noticed that you have small cracks around the windows and doors of your home, this is a good time to seal them up. A little caulking will go a long way in keeping these pests out of your home. If you have noticed that you screens have small holes, buy the materials that are necessary to repair these and keep cockroaches out. Sealing your home is one of the best ways to keep them out of it.
Fix Leaking Water Pipes that Attract Roaches
Cockroaches are often searching for water in this dry desert. Even the smallest drip that could be accumulating a small puddle of standing water will be enough to attract cockroaches. If you notice that you have any leaking pipes, they need to be fixed as soon as possible.
Cockroach Proof Food Containers
The next thing they will be looking for is food that they can get their hands on. You should not even leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight as this will surely be a big attractant for cockroaches. Not only that, but you need to make sure your food is stored in air tight containers that they can’t get into. If you notice that your pantry is littered with crumbs, sweep them up to keep cockroaches away.
