How to Get Rid of Cockroaches
NYC's most Prolific pest.
Controlling and eliminating a cockroach infestation is a multifaceted effort by home/business owners/tenants and pest control professionals. Often individuals are inclined to use over-the-counter or home remedies to treat an infestation but they are only temporarily solutions to the infestation. In many cases cockroaches can avoid or are resistant to these treatments - especially cockroach eggs which have a natural protection against over-the-counter insecticides. This is why it is typically recommended to seek assistance from professionals who can evaluate, eliminate, and control the infestation.
Measures you can take to help prevent an infestation:
- Do not leave food out in the open on countertops and tables.
- Wash and put away dishes.
- Clean up crumbs and spills as soon as they happen.
- Make sure faucets and drains under sinks are in good condition. Especially take note of any standing water in pipes and sinks.
