Amite City’s Cockroach Control & Prevention Guide

Most people know how gross cockroaches are, but few appreciate just how dangerous they really are. Cockroaches hang out in dirty, germ-ridden places -- both inside and outside of our homes. That’s why, when they invade, they track in all kinds of potentially dangerous bacteria. They also can stain your furniture and other pieces of property with their greasy bodies and nasty droppings. That’s why it’s better to get started on cockroach protection before they have a chance to get inside in the first place. Here are some tips for how to reduce your risk of roaches:

  • Deep Cleaning: Cockroaches can survive on crumbs, so simply storing your read-to-eat food well isn’t enough to eliminate their supply. You also need to deep clean regularly, especially under heavy appliances where cockroaches can squeeze in to reach.
  • Crack Sealing: Speaking of squeezing in, cockroaches can flatten their bodies to slip in through even slight cracks. That means you need to regularly check your exterior walls for them and seal up any you find.
  • Inspections: To check that all these factors are being accounted for, you need a trained pair of eyes to check your property. Contact River City Termite & Pest to schedule an inspection.
  • Treatments: Of course, professionals can also offer you thorough treatments that eliminate cockroaches and protect against future infestations.

Don’t let cockroaches invade your property, turn to River City Termite & Pest to get started on pest control today.

What Attracts Earwigs To Homes In Amite City?

Earwigs are another common pest that invades homes and businesses. While they aren’t nearly as dangerous as their rear pincers might suggest, they can still be a huge nuisance and no bug is a good bug to have around your property. That’s why it pays to know what attracts earwigs to a property in the first place, so you can reduce these factors:

  • Landscaping: Earwigs don’t use those pincers to break the skin. Instead, they use them to traverse grass and leafy foliage. That means overgrowth around your yard looks attractive to them and many other pests.
  • Moisture: Another thing that attracts many kinds of pests is moisture. Proper drainage around your yard is important, as is addressing areas inside where water pools or hangs in the air.
  • Honeydew: No, not the fruit. We’re talking about the sugary byproduct of aphids and other garden pests, which attract earwigs and other insects from far around.

To make sure all these factors, and more, are being addressed around your property, contact River City Termite & Pest today.
