How To Get Rid Of Cockroaches: All That You Wanted To Know About It
Cockroaches are everywhere. Millions of them pop up now and then and live around all across the world. You can find them creepily crawling towards you from every nook and corner of your room, bathroom and kitchen sink. The site itself makes some people move away disgusted and others freak out.
To some, cockroaches are the most terrifying thing on the planet. Why wouldn’t they be? After all, those long antennae and legs are scary enough. While for others, they know cockroaches are baddies and deserve to be squashed.
For adults, cockroaches can be an appetizer killer. Imagine you are hungry and you barge into the kitchen and look for the food. And suddenly you find a cockroach or a group of them passing on near the food. Isn’t it is true that at such moments all you want is to take the LAL HIT and just empty it on them? Of course many feel the same way.
Bathrooms are the royal place for cockroaches to thrive and survive. The place provides them with enough food and water for living.

This is the reason you should keep these places clean and hygienic. This will force them out of such places. The same thing applies to the kitchen. Find more about prevention tips later in the blog.
As much you try to exterminate cockroaches, you may find that success is not guaranteed. This is because cockroaches have some special abilities and therefore understanding your creepy enemy a little bit will help you a lot to fight it.
Cockroaches do not spread diseases directly as mosquitoes do. These nasty creatures need a food source. They are therefore most attracted to garbage bins and feed on the spoiled food and carry pathogens on their body. Although cockroaches are synonymous with filth and dirt, they can infiltrate your cleanly made food. Even when you have the best-kept kitchen in the whole world, cockroaches can easily deposit bacteria and other pathogens to your food in the kitchen.
Additionally, cockroaches can carry disease-causing living microorganisms on their digestive system. They release it either through saliva or faeces. Often, cockroaches are known to vomit food before ingestion. This way they transmit the diseases to humans through contaminated food. A really weird way of spreading diseases, isn’t it?
Take note, cockroaches can carry over 60 different kinds of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, worms, viruses and cause diseases like:

Using killer sprays are one of the best methods to eliminate hidden cockroaches hidden behind the kitchen, sink pipe, under the fridge and other common places at home. With easy to use repellent sprays like LAL HIT, you can keep cockroaches at bay.
Keep your food in tightly fit containers. Do not give cockroaches the opportunity to feed on anything. Also, do not leave any food uncovered after cooking or for extended hours.
Don’t leave leftovers or crumbs on the kitchen sink or washroom drain pipes. Keep your kitchen and bathroom clean by removing garbage regularly. If possible, avoid keeping waste bin inside the kitchen. Similarly, keep the toilets and sinkholes closed. This will force away the cockroaches from home.
We already discussed how cocky cockroaches can survive on water alone. Hence, it is necessary to check your kitchen or bathroom for any sort of water leakages. This will make it difficult for cockroaches to survive.
Seal gaps, cracks in the walls, floors, and cabinets. This will prevent cockroaches from hiding behind or under them. It will increase visibility too and you can determine how serious the infestation is.
