SIMPLE WAYS TO KEEP YOUR KITCHEN COCKROACH-FREE
There’s nothing more unsettling than watching a cockroach scuttle across your kitchen floor. While cockroaches are among the most invasive of pests, you only need to take some simple precautions to ensure that your kitchen is cockroach-free. Here are some ways by which you can ensure that
WATCH OUT FOR CRACKS AND CREVICES:
Cockroaches thrive in dark corners. Be watchful of cracks in the flooring, and the nooks and crannies all around your kitchen. These are their favourite places to hide. Do a thorough inspection of all kitchen surfaces and make sure any cracks and crevices are immediately sealed.
DON’T LEAVE FOOD OUT, UNCOVERED:
This seems obvious, and we often follow this practice with our own dishes. But, if you have pets, their food and water bowls can also tempt a cockroach out of hiding. Make sure these bowls are covered before you go to bed at night.
USE CLOSED RUBBISH BINS:
Nothing attracts a cockroach like a pile of trash. While your rubbish bin may be hidden in a cupboard under your counter make sure that it is, nonetheless, covered at all times. This is especially necessary if it is near a drain or any sort of pipes.
DON’T LEAVE DIRTY DISHES IN THE SINK:
While it’s best to rinse your dishes after eating, even if you don’t wash them immediately, beware of leaving dirty dishes in the sink overnight. Keep your home clean and hygienic and make sure you go to sleep with an empty sink and a clean kitchen.
DISINFECT YOUR FLOORS – DAILY:
Guests, pets, children, and even our other family members can track in dust, grime and other dirt from outside into your house and your kitchen floors, which in turn can attract cockroaches. This is why it is essential to clean and disinfect your kitchen floors on a daily basis and keep cockroaches at bay.
