How Do You Kill a Cockroach and Their Eggs?
When it comes to killing cockroaches, we all have the same reaction: stomp them and crush them whenever we see them. This is fine, but you are not taking into account just how many cockroaches are hiding out of plain sight and how many egg casings are also gestating inside of the home.
Cockroaches will hide behind walls, underneath and behind appliances, underneath sinks and basins, in cardboard, under rugs and carpets, even in the bedroom. Dark and moist locations are preferred, which is why most infestations are found in kitchens and bathrooms.
Due to this hiding behavior, you may wonder how on Earth you can possibly attempt to wipe out a cockroach infestation. Even more so, how do you kill egg encasements?
Cockroach treatment essentially boils down to utilizing a treatment plan that is able to penetrate deep into the home to destroy the colony. There is simply no other choice due to the hiding behaviors of the insects and how quick the bugs are when they are discovered.
Unlike rodents, you are dealing with a small and quick pest that doesn’t like to be discovered and reproduces faster than you kill. Foggers, chemical treatments, tenting, and food replacement toxins are just some of the many ways that roaches and their eggs can be destroyed.
How Do You Permanently Get Rid of Cockroaches?
To permanently remove and keep roaches out of the home will depend upon the success of a treatment plan in removing a colony as well as your ability to keep the pests from returning.
Always be sure to keep your home as clean as you possibly can. Always keep counters and floors swept and cleaned, remove rubbish from the home daily and make sure no leaks are present in pipes.
Keep clutter down and food sealed and filed away in its appropriate places. Roaches are attracted to spoiled food, moisture, and filth.
