Cockroaches Infestation: A Frightening Experience To Avoid
Cockroaches are one of the most common household pests in Singapore. While a lot of pest control companies in Singapore offer cockroach control treatments, there are some measures that we can take ourselves to prevent these tiny creatures from invading your home.
1)Remove or store carefully food sources
Do not leave any food sources unattended as they attract cockroaches. If food is not being used, store it tightly in a air-tight container to prevent cockroaches to pick up the smell.
Crumbs and food spills in the kitchens are a common food source for cockroaches. Vacuum the kitchen floor and your household frequently to leave little to nothing left for roaches to snack on.
3)Seal any water leaks
Cockroaches love moisture and water leaks are potential areas for them to breed. Cockroaches can survive for months without food, but only days without water. Inspect your household and do not leave any areas with water sources. Regularly check drains, pipes and faucets to ensure there are no drips or leaks.
4)Empty garbage regularly
Garbage give cockroaches a variety of food sources to snack on. Always empty your trash can regularly at night or keep it closed tightly with a tight fitting lid.
5)Remove unnecessary clutter
Getting rid of unnecessary clutter – newspapers, magazines, plastic bags from the grocery stores – also means there’s less places for roaches to potentially hide and makes it easier for you to spot any signs of early cockroach infestations.
These preventive measures are helpful to keep cockroaches away from your household but if you are facing any signs of cockroach infestation, seek help from us and we will be sure to get rid of these nasty little creatures out of your household!
