We aren’t the only ones looking for warmth inside our house with the cold weather here. Cockroaches are also looking for protection during the winter and can find it inside your home. Many believe that they are attracted to messy and dirty households, but that is not necessarily true.
Now that winter is settling in it’s time to be proactive in keeping them away. Here are a few tips to help you do just that.
Tips to prevent cockroach infestation during winter:
- Seal cracks. Cockroaches can enter your home through the smallest openings. Be sure to check for cracks around your house and seal them with caulk or patch as necessary.
- Keep your home tidy. Cockroaches will be enticed not only with food or bottles laying around the house, but they also enjoy empty boxes, newspapers and clutter.
- Cockroaches need water. They can only survive a week without water but can go up to a month without food. Repair pipes that are leaking and allowing water to accumulate.
- Cockroach prevention. Over the counter sprays are on contact killers and kill the cockroaches you see. It is important to find the source and use a killing agent that Gotta Bug Call Doug uses.
