Why do I have cockroaches?

It doesn’t take much to attract cockroaches to your home but a few good habits can cut off their food supply, leaving them to move past your home and infest some other space. Don’t give cockroaches a moment to infect your home with harmful bacteria. Habits like:

  • Containing all food use to the kitchen
  • Promptly take out kitchen and bathroom trash when full
  • Keep trash away from the outside of the house
  • Don’t let any water stand inside the home

Keep those spine-chilling bugs from taking a second look at your Monterey County home by making a few changes that go a long way.

Treatment options

There are multiple over-the-counter treatment options for cockroaches that can help you kill these skittering critters yourself.

  • Insecticide spray kill on contact
  • Gel bait
  • Roach traps

These methods can be very effective for treating your home for current roachy roommates that are alive now. But if you want to get rid of all the cockroach eggs, any hard-to-reach infested areas, and create a barrier so the cockroaches never return, calling in an experienced professional pest control service is the best way to get rid of all cockroaches and keep them from returning.
