Cockroaches are fast, devious and awfully hard to kill, so be prepared for some frustration as you embark upon your “seek and destroy” mission. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Cockroaches tend to congregate in certain areas, drawn by the odor of their own feces.
  • You can quickly spot cockroach droppings; they look a lot like small specks of spilled pepper.
  • If you want to catch cockroaches “in the act,” be prepared to work at night, when these pests are more active and searching for food.
  • If you have to hunt during the daytime, look in cracks, crevices and other dark, out-of-the-way places, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.

Tell your customers to do the following, to help keep cockroaches at bay:

  • Store food in sealed containers.
  • Wash out all recyclables and remove them frequently.
  • Keep garbage in covered containers, especially if you put it outside.
  • Wipe down your kitchen stovetop, tables and counters every night.
  • Do not leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight.
