How To Get Rid of Cockroaches

I’m willing to guess Freddy Krueger likely wasn’t the only nightmare on Elm Street.

It is said they were here long before us, and they will be here long after us. Cockroaches. Now, you need to get rid of the disgusting cockroach. The things that nightmares are made of. If there is a warm, dark, wet area, like there are pretty much everywhere, you can bet there are cockroaches taking up residence there. Adding to the nightmare is the fact that you might not even see them until you’ve got an infestation on your hands.

Sneaky little suckers, cockroaches are super resourceful. They can enter homes or businesses in a number of ways. They crawl through cracks and holes in foundations or walls, hitch rides on bags and backpacks and suitcases, search out openings around doors and windows, and the most nightmare-inducing way: through drains and pipes. For apartment buildings, drains and pipes are like a highway for roaches to travel from one apartment to another. No drain is safe. No home is safe.

Cockroaches are attracted to food, water, shelter, and warmth – which makes your home  perfect for these nasty little creatures. While they do enjoy a home that is filled with clutter and  messy, they won’t turn down a home that is clean and pristine. They aren’t picky. Their food sources even include cardboard, wallpaper paste, the binding of books, and soap. Like I said, not picky.

Not sure if you have a cockroach problem? Here are some telltale signs:

So, you know you have them, now how do you get rid of them?

And you thought I was joking when I said cockroaches are the things that nightmares are made of! If I was on Elm Street, I think I’d rather take on Freddy!
