April 25, 2019
Cockroaches are a problem year-round in the Lewisville area, but their activity can really ramp up in the summer. Cockroaches usually enter your home in search of food and shelter. By taking some prevention steps you may be able to make your home less appealing to cockroaches. If you don’t have the time or energy to put into time-consuming prevention steps or have found yourself with a cockroach problem already, it’s a good idea to call the professionals for protection and treatment.
Why Cockroaches Can be a Bigger Problem in the Summer
Cockroaches were once tropical pests that have spread to almost all parts of the world. While they’ve adapted to a variety of climates, they are a pest that still thrives in warm moist climates. The summer heat encourages breeding, so cockroaches are extra active searching for food and a mate.
Prevention Steps for Homeowners
Homeowners in the Lewisville area can take steps to help reduce the risk of a cockroach infestation. Some things you can do are:
- Keep food properly stored in the refrigerator or airtight containers
- Clean up spills as soon as they happen and put away food as soon as you are done with it
- Take out the trash often and store it in containers with tight-fitting lids
- Keep compost piles and rotted vegetation from gardens away from your home
