How to get rid of cockroaches

Cockroaches have flat, oval-shaped bodies with a small head and six long legs. Cockroaches spread dangerous bacteria, including E. Coli and salmonella. During the day, they hide in cracks, beneath appliances, around garbage, and in moist areas like drains and bathrooms. 

Roaches enter your house on second-hand furniture, grocery bags, or corrugated boxes, but most often migrate up from sewers. 

Avoid cockroaches indoor

Since roaches can survive on very little food, it’s best to keep living areas free of food scraps. Clean up garbage, empty cat litter regularly, and don’t leave pet food out overnight. Cockroaches love moisture so keep your house dry by fixing leaking pipes and faucets, and employing a dehumidifier in the basement. 

Plug cracks in the bathroom with caulking, and treat cracks and crevices were the roaches may hide with One Shot Crawling Insect Killer, or Wilson Home Pest Control

If the infestation persists, then roaches may be entering from adjacent buildings or apartments where the problem is not being treated. Treatment of the entire building may be necessary.
