Keep Roaches Out of Your Kitchen With These Tips

roach control in Woodstock GAOf all the pests that can invade your kitchen, roaches tend to cause the most revulsion, and for good reason! Roaches carry viruses, fungi, and bacteria, including Salmonella, Streptococcus, and Staphylococcus.  Fortunately Protect All Pest Control can help you eliminate roaches from your home with our integrated pest management techniques.

Even with treatment, it’s important to take some precautions to ensure that roaches don’t return. These tips can help you keep your kitchen roach-free.

  • Roaches are attracted to water, so don’t leave containers of standing water in the kitchen and check under your sink for leaks.
  • Make sure all food is stored in airtight containers made from plastic, ceramic, metal, or glass.
  • Rinse dishes thoroughly so food residue won’t attract roaches
  • It’s easy to let crumbs build up in certain spots of the kitchen, like the crack between the stove and the counter. Unfortunately those forgotten crumbs are a feast for roaches, so it’s important to vacuum those areas regularly.
  • Keep the top of your refrigerator clean. The warmth is attractive to roaches, so you definitely don’t want to add food to the mix.
  • Sweep and vacuum regularly to combat crumbs.
  • Use a trash can with a lid and empty it often.
