How to get rid of German Cockroaches?
In order to bring a German Cockroach infestation under control, inspection is always the most vital and first step.
Despite being smaller than most other cockroaches, the German cockroach is particularly prolific, laying up to 40 eggs at any time, and this means that they can quickly take over your home. There has been a link made with these and asthma, as well as numerous other diseases, therefore it is vital that an infestation is cleared quickly.
PEST PREVENTION TIP’S
- Never leave out any food—particularly smelly food such as cheese—which could tempt pests inside
- When storing food, always ensure it is out of the reach of rats and mice, who can be particularly crafty; aim to store your provisions at least six inches above the floor,
- Block entry points and remain vigilant in the search for new signs of damage which could represent a pest’s attempts to gain access to your property
- Dispose of trash frequently, and always ensure that bins are sealed
- Always clean worktops, especially food preparation areas, before use. It may seem paranoid, but you never know when a pest may have spread disease onto your counters when you weren’t looking
