Of all the insects and pests out there, the cockroach is the one that people seem to be the most disgusted by. One reason is that that cockroaches can be very efficient at getting into our food supplies. They are also very fast, very strong, immune to many chemicals, and have the ability to reproduce very, very fast.
Cockroaches are extremely versatile creatures and can live in many types of environments, though most species prefer dark moist environments. There are about 3,000 species of roaches in the world with around 50 of those in the US.
They generally invade your home for two big reasons: food and water. So, one thing you can do to help keep them away is make sure that your food is sealed up tight. Using sealable containers whenever possible is always a great idea. Also make sure that you don’t leave dirty dishes around too long, and only leave pet food out when they are actually eating. This might not seem like a lot of food to us, but it is more than enough for the cockroaches.
Another effective method to help keep cockroaches out of your home is to make sure that they can’t get in, in the first place. Make sure that your house is sealed the best that it can be. For more information on how to do this take a look at this link: Gold Miner Pest Control.
