How To Keep Cockroaches Away From Your Home

Cockroach Pest Control

Do you feel like your home is constantly being invaded by cockroaches? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Cockroaches are incredibly common throughout homes all across South East Queensland. Even though they are everywhere, there are some things you can do to help keep cockroaches away from your home and in this blog, the Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control team are breaking them down for you.

Keep Your Home Clear Of Food Scraps

As with all pests, cockroaches almost always enter homes looking for food. If your home has food scraps and crumbs scattered around then you are most likely giving cockroaches a reason to hang around. Try to keep food scraps and crumbs out of your home to prevent cockroach infestation.

Seal Entry Points To Your Home

Cockroaches don’t enter your home through the front door. Instead, they find gaps and cracks to squeeze through. You can dramatically reduce the number of cockroaches and other pests in your home simply by identifying and sealing any cracks and gaps that you see. Take a walk around your home and look for potential entry points.

Fix Any Water Leaks

Cockroaches can only live without water for a week. If your home doesn’t have water leaks then they won’t be able to find the water they need to survive, which almost always results in cockroaches finding somewhere else to live. Assess your home for any water leaks and get these fixed to fix your cockroach problems. You will also notice a drop in the number of other types of pests in your home as well!
