HOW TO ELIMINATE COCKROACHES
IDENTIFY PROBLEM AREAS WITH FLASHLIGHT AND GLUE TRAPS
When considering which cockroach control method to use, it is best to first inspect your home for possible cockroach infestation sites. To do this, use a flashlight to find popular cockroach hideouts, including behind the refrigerator, under the sink, crevices in cabinets and shelves, in the corners of door cabinets, in bathrooms and toilets. Use glue cockroach traps to spot large infestations.
Based on your inspection of the flashlight, select the most important areas for placing glue traps or monitors. Observe these areas for a few days to a week. For most cockroaches, traps or monitors can point to a high-traffic area that indicates where to treat.
USE CAULK TO CLOSE GAP TO PREVENT FURTHER INFECTION
Traps can help you determine where cockroaches are traveling and capture a portion of the population, but they will not get rid of cockroaches that are outside trying to get in. To prevent cockroaches from getting in, use sealant or other sealant to fill possible entry points, including gaps between walls or tiles, small crevices, and openings around taps or engineered walkways. It will also help to use a seal on door and window seals.
PLACE GEL STATIONS TO EFFECTIVELY REDUCE TRACHI POPULATION
Gel bait can be an effective cockroach killer. Gel bait is usually tube-shape and can be apply under baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and near areas that might attract cockroaches. Boric acid dust is often add to gel baits to increase effectiveness, but it is important that it is used correctly and that label instructions are follow, otherwise it is likely to be ineffective in reducing cockroach populations. While gel bait can be effective in killing cockroaches, it can also result in several dead cockroaches lying around your home.
Another popular method when deciding how to kill cockroaches is using baits. The baits are place in areas with heavy traffic, where cockroaches can run across them and interact with the insecticide. The cockroach then returns to its home, dies and is eaten by other cockroaches, passing the insecticide on. The bait works in part to get rid of cockroaches, but not on all cockroaches in the house. Baits must be place out of the reach of children and pets and the label must be adhere to for best results.
