Cockroaches are - arguably - the most disgusting insect that can find their way into your home. Unfortunately, roaches are no strangers to homeowners in Texas, and they're relentless in their pursuit of food, taking any opportunity to get even a morsel. If you're noticing roaches inside your home, maintaining a clean household is extremely important; you should wash your dirty dishes right away, keep your counters and floors clean, and seal your food in containers. Reducing the reasons for them to come searching in your home for food is a great preventative measure, but you should also schedule an interior pest control service to eliminate the existing population. When you sign up, professionals will inspect your home and apply an effective pesticide that will eradicate the roach population in your home; after professionals have treated your home, you'll be able to rest easy knowing that you won't be surprised by unwanted visitors anymore!

Wash Your Dirty Dishes Right Away

Cockroach found crawling on dirty countertop in Murphy, TX.

If a crumb of food is a meal for a cockroach, they'll see the dirty dishes in your sink as a buffet. The leftover food on dirty dishes emits an enticing odor that advertises a potential food source, which attracts roaches into your home. Because of this, you should wash your dirty dishes right away to eliminate one potential food source for these pests.

Keep Your Counters & Floors Clean

Cockroaches are opportunistic insects and are not picky when it comes to food. They'll take what they can get, and you want to minimize the opportunities for roaches to find food in your home. By keeping your counters and floors clean of crumbs or spills, cockroaches won't have much reason to keep sticking around.

Seal up Your Food in Containers

As the saying goes, if there's a will, there's a way - cockroaches live by this. Roaches can get into tiny places, including cereal boxes, snack bags, and anything else that isn't sealed tightly. However, if you keep any food that's not in the fridge/freezer sealed up in containers, you can take away a food source from them and they may move on from your home in search of easier meals.

You should keep pet food in a sealed container, as it can attract cockroaches when left unopened or on the floor.

Schedule an Interior Pest Control Service
