  • Seal the Deal: Check your home for any cracks or holes in walls, especially around pipes and windows, and seal them up. Roaches can squeeze through tiny spaces, so this step is crucial.
  • Keep it Clean: Don't leave food out, clean up crumbs and spills immediately, and store food in sealed containers. A clean kitchen is your best defense.
  • Dry Zone: Roaches love moisture. Fix leaky faucets and don't let water stand in sinks or buckets. Keeping your home dry makes it less inviting to them.
  • Trash Talk: Take out the trash regularly and use cans with tight-fitting lids. This keeps roaches from finding food in your trash.
  • Declutter: Roaches love hiding in clutter. Regularly declutter your home to reduce their hiding spots.

These simple habits can significantly reduce the chances of a roach invasion and keep your home cleaner and healthier.
