Effective Ways to Evict Cockroaches out Of Your House

Something that I am sure you can all relate to is, when you see a cockroach you look for the nearest shoe, and squish it, thinking it is an effective way of killing cockroaches. Don’t get me wrong, it is completely effective…if you are only wanting to kill one cockroach. But, what most people don’t know is that when there is one cockroach, there is usually another 10 or so roaming around the house. So, the good old shoe trick really is not very effective at all, not in the long term anyway.

Apart from using your shoes to kill cockroaches, there are a few other more effective ways to evict those unwanted cockroaches;

  • Cockroach baits

Cockroach baits work by attracting the pests to the bait to eat the food inside them that has insecticide in it. For the baits to work, they need to placed in an area that does not contain other sources of food that the cockroaches may prefer to eat over the bait. Cockroaches leave scent trails, so other cockroaches will follow the path to the bait, and consume the bait. When the cockroaches return to their nest, they then contaminate other cockroaches, eventually killing the nest.

  • Cockroach sprays

Cockroach sprays are also quite effective eradication methods. There are a number of different types of sprays available, the main one being surface spray. All you need to do is spray your surfaces with the spray. Chemicals within the spray attract cockroaches from their hiding places to the sprayed area, which then attacks the pests and kills the cockroaches and any eggs they are carrying. As well as killing the cockroaches on the spot, the spray also provides a 6 month barrier.

  • Professional pest control

The Most effective, and reliable way to evict those unwanted cockroaches currently residing within your pantry and cupboards, is with professional pest control on Gold Coast, pest control on Sunshine Coast, or wherever you are located.
