When it comes to controlling cockroaches, maintaining a sanitary interior and applying the right products will provide long residual control throughout the warmer months. “Spring” into action and control cockroaches by following these spring cleaning tips:

  • Remind homeowners of the importance of thoroughly sealing and storing food, as well as eliminating pools of water around leaky faucets or appliances.
  • Carefully inspect attics, basements, garages and crawlspaces — all areas in which homeowners tend to store containers and boxes.
  • Use all the tools in your toolbox, including a vacuum, to help significantly reduce the number of adult and dead cockroaches, egg cases and feces.
  • Because of the long life cycle of cockroaches, using the right products in addition to a good spring cleaning is key to getting the job done. An insect growth regulator (IGR) that translocates into hard-to-treat areas can help.
