How to get rid of cockroach

Cockroaches are one of the most common home pestThree common cockroaches in Singapore are the German cockroach, Brown Banded cockroach and American cockroach. Cockroaches enter your premises in search of food, water and shelter. Once they have infested an area, they can multiply quickly, posing threat to your comfort and health. Cockroaches are known to carry bacteria that can result in food poisoning, diarrhoea, allergies and skin rashes. High infestation can also cause an odour smell. Making it very unpleasant.


Identify the type of cockroach

Knowing the type of cockroach you are dealing with, can expedite in the eradication of a cockroach infestation. Examine your home for possible cockroach infestation area before deciding on the cockroach control method to use. Use a torchlight to search for popular cockroach hiding spots, including behind the refrigerator, under the sink, crevices in cabinets and shelves, closet door corners, bathroom cabinets and closets.

Bait stations is another effective way to kill cockroaches

It works by attracting cockroaches into stations to feed on poison. The poisoned cockroach then travels back to its home location, dies and is eaten by the other cockroaches. Further passing on the poison. Bait stations work partially to get rid of cockroaches, but do not target all cockroaches in a home. It poses an issue because they contain poison and look unappealing when scattered around your home.

Use silicon to close gaps to prevent further infestation

Trap can be effective in reducing existing cockroach populations, but they won’t get rid of the cockroaches on the outside trying to enter. To control a cockroach infestation from expanding, use silicon to fill possible entry points, including gaps between walls or tile, small crevices and entry holes. It helps to use weather stripping on doors and window seals.

Place gel bait and bait stations to effectively reduce cockroach population

Gel bait is effective for cockroach control. Gel bait comes in tube that can be applied under baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and near areas that are most likely to attract cockroaches. Gel bait is effective in getting rid of cockroaches, it can also leave lots of dead cockroaches lying around your home.
