While cockroaches may inhabit a home or business at any point during the year, they typically will thrive in the spring and summer with warmer temperatures. Not only are these creepy pests disturbing, they can be a source of several potential health threats when they take up residence in your home or business. If you want to protect your structure and prevent cockroach infestation, now is the time to spring into action.
When dealing with or trying to prevent cockroach infestation, sanitation should be a primary concern. By eliminating the factors that make them comfortable in your home or business, you have a far better chance at eliminating them or ensuring they don’t take up residence all together. Remember, cockroaches need three accommodations to survive; food, shelter and water.
By eliminating foods sources, consistently emptying the trash and limiting moisture around your home or business, it will be hard for these needs to be met. It is important to note, however, that your spring cleaning should include areas around your home or business that typically may not get the attention they deserve. For the best results, clean behind appliances, such as the stove and refrigerator, where grease and other potential food sources may collect.
Decluttering is also an important step in making your home or business less accommodating to these hardy and resourceful pests. In most cases, it is important to remove clutter in areas that provide needed water, including kitchen areas or bathrooms. Most cockroach species will live near water sources, making these rooms far more susceptible to nests and any clutter that is available may provide adequate shelter.
