There isn’t a surefire way to completely eliminate the possibility of roaches getting into your home, but there are a few tasks you can do to make it a lot less likely. 

How to Prevent a Roach Infestation

1. Clean Your Kitchen

Roaches tend to enter homes or businesses where they can find food sources. So if you have greasy appliances or crumbs on your floors or pantry shelves, it could attract those critters. Vacuum and clean all the surfaces in your kitchen regularly to eliminate those food traces. Additionally, keep leftover food in sealed plastic containers.

2. Seal Off Cracks & Openings
