Cockroaches are hardy insects that can survive in all kinds of conditions and are very resourceful in finding ways into buildings.
The most effective way to prevent cockroaches is to deny them easy access to food, water and shelter, which are the main factors that attract them into your home or business.
As your local pest control experts, Western Exterminator knows what attracts cockroaches. Use these prevention tips to keep your property free of cockroach infestations.

While you should always contact pest control professionals if you have an active infestation of cockroaches, there are steps you can take to prevent cockroaches from gaining entry to your home or business.
Eliminate food sources - store dry foods in tightly sealed containers or in sealed plastic bags and do not leave food sitting out on counters. Do not leave liquids in sinks or buckets.
Clear all waste food and liquid spillage - clean up food debris from food preparation areas, under sinks and appliances. Empty garbage cans on a daily basis and keep all garbage or compost in sealed bins.
Remove pet food - and drink and litter trays before nightfall.
Rinse cans, bottles and plastics - before putting them in recycling bins.
De-clutter - remove old stacks of newspapers and magazines, unused cardboard boxes and all other forms of clutter from the floor or bottom of cupboards. Cockroaches release an aggregation pheromone in their droppings telling others they have found a safe harborage.
Varnish or paint wood shelves - to seal them, and wipe them clean regularly.
Seal entry points - to deny access to cockroaches. Key risks are gaps around pipes, drains and common walls with neighboring properties when dealing with German, Oriental and American cockroaches. Even tiny cracks around skirting boards and behind electrical sockets should be plugged to reduce potential hiding areas.
If you have already spotted signs of an infestation, these steps will help to control an existing problem but you will also need professional treatment for a reliable, long-term solution.
