Managing cockroaches is not easy. First thing to do is to determine where the roaches are located. The more hiding places is located and managed, the more successful the control program will be. Some locations may be difficult to get to. Reduction of food and water sources and hiding places is essential. If cockroaches have access to food, baits (which are a primary control tool) have limited effect and sprays alone will not eliminate cockroaches.
Tip: Clean the home prior to the pest control visit, and maintain the home as neatly as possible for long-term results. This helps to eliminate competing food sources for the insects. Additionally, when the home is clean, the roaches will be more easily attracted to the bait and not to food sources.
