How to Prevent Cockroaches

Your property could be an ideal breeding ground for certain species of cockroaches. It can enter your property through multiple entry points, such as cracks, crevices, vents, sewers and pipe drains. 

Sealing entry points can help prevent a cockroach from entering the home. Key risks are gaps under doors or around pipes to the exterior or neighbouring properties. 

Also seal gaps where cockroaches can harbour - cockroaches are nocturnal and hide during the day in cracks and crevices in the walls, around skirting boards or behind electrical sockets. 

The most effective way to keep cockroaches away is to deny them easy access to food, water and shelter, which are the main factors that attract them into your home or business.

Here are practical steps you can take to reduce the risk of an infestation.

The most effective way of controlling cockroaches is to deny them food and water:

  • Eliminate food sources - store dry foods in tightly sealed containers or in sealed plastic bags and do not leave food sitting out in open space.

  • Clear all waste food and spillage - clean up food debris from food preparation areas, under sinks and appliances. Empty the rubbish on a daily basis and keep all waste in covered bins. Clear used crockery and cutlery immediately. Remove pet food, water and litter trays overnight.

  • De-clutter - remove old stacks of newspapers and magazines, unused cardboard boxes and all other forms of clutter from the floor or bottom of cupboards that may provide a hiding place for cockroaches. Take care with soiled nappies or dirty clothing. Do not leave liquids in sinks or buckets overnight.

  • Seal entry points - seal areas such as gaps around door, pipes and cracks to reduce cockroaches hiding place and access into your property.

  • Regular inspections by pest control experts.
