The Easiest Way To Get Rid Of Cockroaches In Your Santa Clarita Home
July 15, 2021 - Cockroaches
It is difficult to get rid of cockroaches naturally. You have to roll your sleeves up and do quite a bit of work. It is slightly easier to get rid of cockroaches with pest control products, but this can become laborious when the products or strategies used fall short - which is far more common than you might think. The easiest way to get rid of cockroaches is to invest in professional pest control services. Let's take a look at this problem a little closer.
What is natural pest control? Natural pest control is the alteration of the environment around and inside your Santa Clarita home to deter or repel cockroaches and stunt population development.
Food Source Management
Good sanitation and protecting the food inside your home are the places to start if you want to get rid of cockroaches. These insects thrive in unsanitary conditions because they eat things like dead skin cells, hair, rotting organic matter, grease, sludge, and even feces. It is difficult to get a home clean enough to remove all the "food" sources that roaches eat. You have to deep clean and keep things clean.
Cockroaches like clutter. If they get into your home and find cluttered spaces, they will be very happy. Clutter also helps roaches move about more easily without being detected. But, like food source management, it can be a lot of work cleaning up clutter and keeping things uncluttered.
Cockroaches prefer humid environments. You can address moisture in many ways, but most of them are a burden. It is tough to replace a showerhead that is leaking, or to get under your kitchen sink and fix a garbage disposal that has had a slow leak for months. It is also difficult to install vents, fans or dehumidifiers in spaces that stay humid.
Before roaches get into your home, they'll be attracted to your exterior. You can deter them by cleaning up leaves, sticks, grass clippings, wood, and other organic materials. Once more, this is tough to keep up with.
DIY Cockroach Control
There are many over-the-counter (OTC) products that promise to give you control of cockroaches. Unfortunately, these products can fail in many ways.
- They might target the symptoms and not the problem.
- The cockroaches in your home might be resistant to the product.
- The cockroaches in your home might get exposed but survive the exposure. When this happens, they can shed their skins and make new skins that are resistant to the product used.
- They can develop an aversion to a bait you're using - so much that their taste receptors are rewired. This can be passed on to their offspring.
It can cost a lot to get rid of cockroaches but, more so than this, it is exhausting. You'll have to crawl around in spaces that are dirty, cramped, and hot.
