How to Protect Your Souderton Home Against Cockroaches in 2019
January 11, 2019
If we were to take a guess, we would imagine that cockroaches are at the top of the list of pests that people want to avoid. For one, they aren’t very appealing as far as critters go, nothing cute and cuddly about a roach. Two, they are dirty pests that spend much of their time living in filth. The good news is that there are ways to protect your Souderton home against cockroaches in 2019.
During the winter, cockroaches scurry indoors looking for shelter and food. Cockroaches were originally tropical pests and, while they’ve adapted to cold climates, they still prefer a warm moist location close to food to call their home. They are adept at getting into homes through cracks and crevices as well as through pipes. Cockroaches have also been known to come up through toilets. In areas where homes share walls, such as condos or townhouses, cockroaches can move between walls across pipes and through outlets to get from one dwelling to another.
Souderton homeowners can take prevention steps this winter as well as year-round to try to prevent cockroach infestations. Cockroaches are pests that gravitate toward dirty homes. Keeping your house tidy is a great way to help keep cockroaches away. Cleaning up spills, storing food properly, removing trash frequently, vacuuming and mopping regularly, and even flushing out drains are all great steps to take to prevent cockroaches. Reducing clutter and repairing areas of your home that are in disarray can also help, by decrease hiding spots and entry points for cockroaches.
Unfortunately, most of the time DIY prevention steps fall short and professional pest control experts are the only solution. While it’s still a great idea to take the precautions above, call Moyer Pest Control immediately if you suspect a cockroach problem.
