3 Quick Tips To Keep Cockroaches Out Of Your Suffolk Home

September 15, 2020

You know them, you’ve seen them, and now they’re headed right towards your front door!

As a species, the humble cockroach is quite possibly one of the most notorious pests in North America. Several types of roaches common to the Suffolk area include:

  • The German Cockroach

  • The American Cockroach

  • The Brown-Banded Cockroach

  • The Oriental Cockroach

Cockroaches on their own are already an unpleasant sight, but a cockroach infestation in the home is an even more dangerous affair. These six-legged creatures are capable of spreading around dangerous pathogens and strains of bacteria, as well as certain types of parasitic eggs. In susceptible hosts, the pests may even trigger asthma attacks and allergic reactions. Their sweet, musky, almost overpowering scent is evident in any area near their locale. In some cases, this scent may fill up an entire living space!

Unless cockroach prevention starts right away, homeowners will have little chance of preventing these insect enemies from entering their final stage of infestation.

Preventing Cockroaches From Entering The Home – 3 Quick Tips

No matter how many roaches you’re looking to keep out this summer, following these three tips will vastly reduce your chances of picking up or maintaining an infestation during their most active season. Eliminate factors, reduce resources, and otherwise pest-proof your home by:

  1. Sealing up any entry points from which pests could enter or exit the home. These include cracks in the foundations or walls, tears in mesh screening, or rot around the edges of doors and windows.
  2. Carefully store all garbage in a proper container, removing bags from the house on a regular basis. If possible, remove outdoor trash from the lawn and outdoor bins at least once a week.
  3. Getting ongoing pest assistance through Hometown Pest Control. This is an excellent way to keep populations down before they grow out of proportion.
