How to Come Up With Long Term Cockroach Control

Home Improvement,Health,Environment
Intensive sanitation measures and the use of pesticides should be used jointly to control cockroaches. Pesticides alone will not be successful as the habitat must be physically modified first.

Cockroach infestations are rarely resolved quickly. These pests are extremely adaptable and may even be resistant to some home extermination methods. So it is best to find an approach to control this pest with longer effectiveness as possible.

The length of time it takes to rid your home of a cockroach infestation depends largely upon species, size of population and method of control employed.

Steam clean stuff toys and furnitures

If furniture, toys or crafts are suspected of harbouring roaches, steam clean them if the material will not be damaged by moisture or heat. Regular vacuuming will remove food sources, cockroaches and egg cases. Ensure they are all destroyed by immersing the vacuum bag in soapy water.

Work out those traps

Traps, including sticky traps, allow you to monitor the population and location of roaches so that you know where to concentrate your efforts. Cockroach traps can be bought or easily built. Build one by spreading petroleum jelly on the interior of a small darkened jar and sticking masking tape on the outside for grip purposes. Place a small piece of food, like bread, inside the jar. Once a cockroach crawls in, it will not be able to crawl out. Cockroaches that have been caught can be killed in a bucket of soapy water, or by placing a lid on the jar and putting it in the freezer for at least 24 hours.

Seal the entrypoints

Seal and caulk all cracks, crevices and pipe openings to reduce cockroach hiding places. Put a fine mesh screen over cracks and crevices, vents, open pipes and drains to reduce their access to your home. Store garbage in metal or heavy plastic containers with tightly fitted lids and dispose of regularly. Store food in heavy plastic containers or glass jars.

If administered correctly, chemical insecticides can greatly diminish a cockroach population. If used incorrectly, over-the-counter insecticides can be harmful to children and pets. They may also damage furniture. Boric acid is a popular do-it-yourself method for killing cockroaches, although it requires a great deal of time to prove effective. The same is true for diatomaceous earth.

Cockroach baits are an alternative if you have pets and children. Bait remains where it is applied and many forms are tamper-resistant. The active ingredient within cockroach baits kills specimens within a few days. However, baits are only as effective as their placement and are not a quick solution for substantial infestations.

The most rapid and effective pest control methods are those administered by trained pest control professionals. Contact your local expert to discuss extermination options.
