With winter setting in, every animal and bug around wants to go to one place: your house. Between being an ample food source, a good shelter, and a warm spot to hang out, there is a multitude of reasons why pests want to be in your home. This winter, don’t let the pests inside- starting with the dreaded cockroach.

Identifying Cockroaches

Cockroaches are pretty easy to spot. They’re flat and brown, often very fast and difficult to catch. Cockroaches have segmented bodies with long, thin antennae, and they can lay up to 25 eggs in one case. Over the course of a year, they can produce thousands of offspring, easily infesting your house. Typically, they hide in warm, dark corners, and are known for breaking into food. They are most active at night.

Preventing Cockroaches

The easiest way to keep cockroaches out of your home is to seal it up. Take a tube of caulk to any open spaces in your sidings, your windows, or your foundation, and make sure that there are no spaces between your doors and their frames. Furthermore, keep all of your food sealed up in a dry area, and fix any leaky pipes. Make sure your home is well-lit, and clean regularly. Don’t use bug bombs for cockroaches, as they don’t tend to reach the areas where most insects nest.
