Roach Control Best Practices, Lebanon, Kentucky

Roaches are resilient pests that can quickly overrun a home or business. That’s why taking preventative roach control measures is the best way to curtail a problem before it becomes an issue. Focusing on eliminating food sources, decluttering your property, and implementing proper pest control strategies can help keep your home or business roach free.

The Top 3 Roach Control Tips

1. Eliminate Their Source of Food

As with all pests, eliminating potential food sources is the easiest way to prevent a roach problem from developing. Store food in tightly sealed containers or bags and place them in counters, drawers, or cupboards. You should always clean up spills, crumbs, and other food waste that is out in the open and rinse empty cans and containers before throwing them away.

2. Destroy Entry Points & Breeding Areas

Seal up any cracks or openings to prevent pests from gaining access to your property and tidy up your property to eliminate their potential habitats and breeding areas. This includes removing stacks of newspapers, cardboard boxes, and other clutter.

3. Call a Professional

Often, the best roach control method starts before you have a problem. Call an exterminator to provide yearly inspections and apply preventative treatment applications. If you spot signs of a roach problem, it is important to act quickly, as these insects can multiply rapidly.
