How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Keeping your home clean will help reduce the risk of a cockroach infestation but will not eliminate it. Cockroaches are looking for food, water, and shelter, all of which your home provides.

While cockroaches are often associated with a dirty home, this isn’t always the case. Cockroaches enter your home in search of food, water, and shelter. Your home provides a safe, warm place for them to stay. They often find water from leaky pipes and condensation from HVAC systems and drains. Even if you clean daily, they are very resourceful and will find something to eat.

If you already have an infestation, there are things you can do to help slow the spread of the infestation in your home.

Why Are There Cockroaches in My Clean Home?

Cockroaches are very resourceful and will find a safe place to live, eat, and drink even if you clean every day. In a clean home, these pests are found in low-traffic areas, such as the attic, garage, and basement. 

Known for their ability to survive almost anywhere, they practice a variety of survival tactics, including cannibalism and eating their excrement. They can even survive high radiation and go without water for long periods. 

Once cockroaches get inside, getting rid of them on your own is almost impossible. We know it’s frustrating, and we are here to help! Our Fox Pest Control technicians are highly skilled at getting cockroaches out of your home for good. First, our team thoroughly inspects your home to understand the extent of the infestation. Then, they will create a custom control plan for each customer to fit your unique needs. The treatment can take 1-4 hours.

Let our Fox Home Protection Plan take care of pest issues for you! Consistency is the best defense against pests. If you see pests between scheduled services, call us anytime for a FREE TARGET TREATMENT as part of your Home Protection Plan.
