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.

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 premise.

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

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

  • Clear all waste food and spillage - clean up food debris from food preparation areas, under sinks and appliances. Clear out garbage on a daily basis and keep all waste materials in covered bins.

  • 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.

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

  • Conduct regular inspections by pest control experts.
