Along with the cold winter weather comes insect invasions. Rodents and roaches to name only two. So what can you do? First, take steps to prevent them from getting inside. Roaches are so small they can gain access through the tiniest little crack or crevice. Here are some suggestions for pest control of roaches.
For the most effective pest control in Springfield Missouri:
- Inspect your property – inside and out – for signs of pests.
- Check for cracks around windows and doors.
- Seal gaps around plumbing pipes.
- Patch cracks in the foundation, porches and sidewalks.
Roaches like warm spaces where they have ready access to food and water. So the logical place to start looking inside is the kitchen. Turn your attention to the places where you store and prepare food. Clean and clear pantry clutter – get rid of your collection of plastic grocery sacks and throw out empty and near-empty containers of food. Not only are the kitchen and pantry a veritable smorgasbord for pests but it’s also warm and toasty. All those electrical appliances generate heat. Pests love building their nests close to the heat source. You can’t very well turn off all the appliances all the time, so obviously keeping them from getting inside the house in the first place is the most important step.
Don’t leave the dinner dishes sitting out overnight. Take extra steps to make your kitchen sterile and banquet-free – for pest control, that is. Are your furry pet’s food and water dishes sitting out in the open? Cover them when not in use. Sweep the floor after cooking and store leftovers in covered containers. Vacuum carpets and shake loose area rugs outdoors frequently. Vacuum your furniture, especially upholstered furniture where people eat.
Here’s a tip – don’t allow anyone to eat any kind of food anywhere in the house but the designated dining area. Voila! No crumbs and scraps just sitting there waiting to fill a mouse or roach tummy.
Next, examine all the sinks and faucets and other sources where water enters the house. Fix any water leaks you find. Roaches need water more than they need food, so if you find leaky pipes or standing water anywhere in your home (be sure to check the basement around the water heater and washing machine), take care of it immediately.
Look elsewhere in the house – closets, storage rooms, attic crawlspace – if you have acquired 10 years worth of phone books – do you really need them? Pitch them out! Are there stacks of old newspapers waiting to be read? It isn’t going to happen! Throw them in the recycle bin.
Pest control can be expensive – don’t worsen it by wasting money at the big box store on over-the-counter sprays, glue traps and roach-motels. They really do not work. You can sink some serious coin into trying DIY pest control of roaches but chances are you’ll end up calling the professionals for help anyway. (Happens all the time).
