Nobody likes cockroaches showing up in their home as these dirty insects track in dirt and are a known vector for disease. They also happen to be quite smelly and unhygienic. Combined with their ability to crawl into almost everywhere, your food and health are definitely under threat. There are many ways to get rid of them, but quite a few of these options are also toxic to humans. Thankfully, experienced Fort Wayne exterminators know a few non-toxic, eco-friendly ways to get rid of them. Here are a few examples.
Clean Things Up
The best natural way to get rid or avoid a cockroach infestation is the simplest: keep your house clean. Cockroaches love dirty environments; it gives them a plethora of places to hide and a lot of food to feed on. A sink full of unwashed dishes and an open trash can are an invitation for roaches to move in. Ensure this doesn’t happen by always cleaning everything up; wash dishes promptly and place your garbage in sealed trash bags.
