If you have had some small problems or used a professional pest controller in the past then these tips will help prevent roaches from returning to your property.
Most of the following tips will likely have been given to you by your local pest controller to help prevent them from returning, but the following tips will all work quite effectively if you do them constantly as part of an ongoing hygiene regimen.
The only way to prevent cockroaches from returning is to remove what attracted them in the first place (i.e. food).
If you have cockroaches it doesn’t particularly mean your home is dirty, they can be attracted to just the smallest traces of food and smells. of smells but keeping your kitchen and dining areas cleaner and not leaving food lying around will massively help.
Much like rodents, there are certain smells that cockroaches don’t like and will greatly deter them from entering your property, like oregano, rosemary, mint, eucalyptus, lemongrass and catnip. Leave or rub them near what you perceive to be access points both inside and out.
In short, cleanliness both inside and out, plus restricting access are the key factors in preventing cockroaches from returning. The above can be a lot of work and remember that licensed pest controllers have access to better poisons, baits, sprays and techniques that you don’t so for more specific advice or full cockroach treatment in Maitland, Cessnock or Lake Macquarie then please give ASPC a call today.
