Your home or business could potentially be an ideal breeding ground cockroaches. There are many ways that roaches can gain access to your home or business. They can get in through cracks, crevices, vents, sewers and pipe drains. Denying cockroaches access to shelter, water and food is the most effective way to prevent them from moving into your business or home. Eliminate all food sources by storing food in tightly sealed containers or sealed plastic bags and do not leave food sitting out on counters. Do not leave open containers or water around your home or office. Make sure your counters and floors are food free. Wipe down counters, and sweep floors daily. If your pets are on constant feeders, put them away at night. Throw out newspapers and cardboard as soon as possible. Caulking entry points and sealing cracks will deny access to cockroaches.
