Homeowner Tips for Getting Rid of Roaches

Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Roaches…It's fair to say that roaches are one pest for which not even the most enthusiastic "insectophobe" could generate much positive PR. There's just really not much positive one can say about them. They carry disease; they invade our homes to munch on food, boxes and books; they rank up there with spiders and snakes in creepiness factor…. Craig Guillot, a New Orleans-based writer, offers up strategies for ridding oneself of roaches at HomeLogic.com. Being from New Orleans, he should have plenty of personal experience. Roaches love the humid subtropical climate of south Louisiana, where they can thrive. Guillot's tips include starving them, using traps and bait stations, homemade "green" poisons, and of course (we like this one), hiring a pest professional like Legacy. Read the full story here, and in the meantime, here's a sample: Whenever food and water are easy to find, roaches will invite themselves to dinner. Here’s how to cancel their reservations and get rid of roaches: Dry up any standing water around sinks, tubs, and toilets. Roaches can only live a week without water. Meticulously clean your kitchen, including crumbs near the stove, microwave, and refrigerator. Vacuum scraps of food from corners and around the cabinet bases. Wipe down cupboard insides and drawers with soap and water. Immediately clean and put away dirty dishes.
