Denver Cockroach Control

llow these tips to prevent cockroaches from infesting your Colorado home.

If you had a busy summer like we did, did your kitchen feel a little lonely? Many people try to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible in the summer time, but if you’re finally settling back into your old routine and you’re using your kitchen more, you may be seeing insects in there you’ve not seen before. Could these be cockroaches? Common kitchen bugs like cockroaches will take advantage of your absence from the kitchen, feeding on any food you leave on the counters or crumbs and spills that don’t get cleaned up immediately. These pests are NOT good house guests and if you have seen them in your home, it is time to do something about them!

Cockroaches in Colorado can spread diseases. Because cockroaches spend a lot of time in sewers crawling around feces and garbage, they pick up bacteria and pathogens on their bodies that they can transfer to your food and your food preparation surfaces. These pathogens can make you sick and their feces can cause allergies and asthma in young children and the elderly. Having cockroaches inside your home is not acceptable; to prevent roach infestations in your home, follow these home pest control prevention tips from the Denver pest control pros at EnviroPest by Sprague Pest Solutions:

  • Clean, clean, clean! Keeping your home clean is crucial in preventing cockroaches. These pests like filthy environments, so eliminate dirt, food spills and crumbs to eliminate the possibility of a cockroach infestation.

  • Keep your home free from clutter; areas of clutter can act as harborage for cockroaches inside your home.

  • Seal cracks and gaps in the exterior of your home; this can help keep cockroaches, other insects and rodents out of your home.

  • Always inspect grocery items before bringing them into your home.

  • Store food in airtight containers or in the refrigerator.
