PREVENTION/TREATMENT

Due to their nocturnal habits, it’s often easier to spot the signs of cockroaches than spot the critters themselves.

Look out for shed skin which the roaches normally leave close to where they’re sheltering, smear marks if water is available to the roaches or cockroach droppings if they don’t have access to water, and be aware of any unusual smells which are produced by infestations.

There are a number of high-risk areas for cockroaches, namely: bathrooms, kitchens, food preparation areas, laundry rooms, basements and drains. Any areas that are sheltered, dark and warm spaces with access to water or condensation, such as behind sinks, cabinets, dishwashers and near piping.

To prevent these creatures from making your home their own, or overrunning your business, there are a number of things you can do.

Ensuring your property is effectively sealed, and not leaving you open to infestation, is an essential first step.

Storing food away, ensuring all food debris is cleaned regularly, emptying the sink of water and emptying the rubbish bins on a daily basis will help to protect your home or business from infestation.

Commercial readers should ask our team about our Pest Protection Plans which include regular visits to your premises to deploy this kind of preventative maintenance. These tailored services are especially key for food related businesses, with high standards, and hygiene ratings to uphold. 

There are a number of DIY products to help eradicate cockroaches, but for for highly effective and affordable cockroach infestation treatments, call Key West. Our experienced technicians are at hand to return your home or business to its pest-free state, and restore your peace of mind.
