One of the most unpleasant types of pests to come across within the walls of your own home is a cockroach. Cockroaches are infamously associated with filth and disease and should not be allowed to wander around your home like they own the place. Cockroaches have the ability to squeeze through the smallest crack or crevice to gain access into your home, so it is not surprising that they are able to quickly infest a home before the home owner even realizes that there is a problem. Cockroaches can adapt to almost any environment, making it easy for them to rapidly reproduce and cause you and your family a major headache. Often time’s home owners go at it alone when attempting to remove cockroaches from their home, this usually end up with low to zero results.
Will Roaches Stay in a Clean House?
One of the best steps you can take to keep cockroaches from coming into your home is to clean your home often and clean your home thoroughly. A home that has dust accumulated on window seals, crumbs on the floor, leftovers in the sink and grime buildup in other areas becomes extremely attractive to cockroaches. Cockroaches tend to thrive in homes where there is a great deal of crumbs on the floor or where there is a great deal of clutter for them to hide out in as well. Taking the time to properly clean and declutter your home will help to keep cockroaches away.
Can Cockroaches Come Up Through Toilet?
One of the biggest mistakes that home owners often make when it comes to removing cockroaches from their home is flushing them down the toilet. Home owners believe that when they flush a cockroach down the toilet that it will kill the cockroach by drowning it. Cockroaches are extremely resilient insects and simply flushing them down the toilet will not eliminate them. Even when flushed down the toilet, the cockroach can live, and crawl its way back up through the toilet and into your home. The last experience you want to have while using the restroom is looking down into the toilet only to see a cockroach heading your way.
Home Sealing for Pest Control
If you want to keep cockroaches out of your home, it is important to get rid of entry points. This can be done by sealing around utility pipes and crawl spaces as well as making sure windows and doors are secure and have weather-stripping if necessary. Sealing all cracks and crevices goes a long way in stopping cockroaches from gaining entry.
