Cockroaches were not designed to be family-friendly. In fact, cockroaches are one of the more dangerous pests you can have in your home. Not only can they carry and transmit diseases but their filthy lifestyles can quickly turn your food-preparation and dining areas into a breeding ground for unwanted sickness and stress. The good news is there are some things you can do to keep your Dallas home cockroach-free this spring and summer. Here are some good places to start.
Prevention Tips To Avoid Attracting Cockroaches To Your Dallas Home
The unfortunate thing about cockroaches is that they are not difficult to attract. All your home needs are a few dirty, moist nooks and crannies and they will be happier than a bug in a rug, or in a more literal case, a bug under a dirty refrigerator. Even if you keep your home immaculately clean, there may be some hidden factors around your home that are still attracting cockroaches. Consider the following prevention steps to keep your home cockroach-free this spring and summer.
Start with the exterior defense of your home and make sure your foundation is crack and hole-free. If you find any cracks or holes, use a caulking gun to seal them up.
Search in and around your home for leaks or water build-up and eliminate or fix these problems. Cockroaches are pests that love moist conditions. Anything you can do to reduce moisture in and around your home will go a long way in deterring roaches.
Clean tight areas around your home. Cockroaches prefer to spend the majority of their time squeezed between two objects and the filthier the area is the better. These conditions are most commonly found under appliances.
Consider bringing in a professional to help. The best way to get rid of and keep out cockroaches is to get help from someone who is trained in the art of pest control.
