Preventing cockroach infestations

Reduce the cockroach infestation by:

· keeping living areas dry and clean

· disposing of rubbish

· removing human waste and food waste from the home quickly and efficiently.

Insecticides work best when applied to areas where cockroaches hide during the day or pass through at night.

Pest Control Palmerston North says it is vital to keep the home clean and dry to stop getting cockroaches in the first place.

Roaches are nocturnal so roach inspections are best conducted at night. Most roach infestations start in the kitchen and/or bathroom so the inspection should be concentrated in those areas. Look for adult roaches, juvenile roaches, roach eggs and roach faeces.

Most roach species prefer dark, moist areas to hide and breed. Typically kitchens and bathrooms are the first rooms to be infested.

Use a torch to look for roaches behind or under refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, dishwashers, sinks, or cabinets.

Roaches may also be found in or around floor drains, inside the motor areas of refrigerators and microwaves, behind wall-mounted pictures or clocks, under floor mats, and in cracks and crevices in cabinets and around walls.
