For most people, there are two major things we know about cockroaches. First, it is widely accepted that they will survive a nuclear explosion that occurs in close proximity to them. And second, they are vile insects that make a very unpleasant noise if you attempt to dispose of them. If you’re starting to see these nuisances popping up in your Orlando home, there are some things you should know about them before you take extreme measures. One of the biggest problems with controlling a cockroach infestation is determining where they’re actually coming from. We’ll give you some tips on how to manage this.
Cockroaches will do some crafty things to obtain food from different sources. The first step is trying to monitor their habits. Cockroaches tend to be territorial, so they typically reside within 15 square feet from an area they know they can access food. Once you know where they’re coming from, it is important to specifically target that area and be persistent with it. Baits and gels are generally going to be the go-to for managing the potential infestation of cockroaches. Any form of fogging isn’t going to be particularly effective for this situation. Fogging has the chance of pushing roaches further into the infrastructure of your building.
Baits have to go in ideal locations so they don’t attract roaches to other locations, furthering the problem. With gels, be very careful with the amount you use. Don’t try to be liberal with it and apply globs of it to the problem area.
