Combating Roaches Is Easy With These Tips
Did you know that roaches are one of the most common pests in America? They have been the subject of horror movies, and there are plenty of people who squirm at the sight of these prehistoric pests. Prehistoric? Yes, that is correct. Scientists believe that roaches have been around since before the dinosaurs. If roaches managed to survive whatever it was that killed off all of the dinosaurs, then how are you going to keep them from moving into your home or apartment?
Why You Don’t Want to Live With Roaches
Besides the obvious reasons, roaches can and will bring several unwanted problems to your humble abode. They literally poop everywhere and anywhere. They don’t look for a toilet. They are happy pooping on your food, in your coffee mug, on your silverware, or in your sock drawer.
Health problems are the most obvious because roach feces transmit disease and bacteria. Let’s not even get into the digestive juices they leave behind on any piece of food they have decided to take a bite out of. Do you want to eat leftover food that roaches have been nibbling on? Not likely.
Don’t Give Them What They WANT!
Believe it, you can easily keep roaches from invading your home. It starts by not providing them with the things they need to survive. Cleanliness is the key here. The cleaner your home is, the less likely roaches are to invade.
You must think like a roach to understand why they want to invade your home. Roaches are looking for two things. They are looking for a food source and water. Most people don’t realize the crumbs left over in the bottom of the toaster are often enough to provide roaches with the necessary food. Add in a few drops of water in the bottom of the sink, and you have the perfect welcoming gift for roaches!
