Tips and Strategies

Top Prevention Tips


  • Roaches often hide in firewood. Be sure to inspect all firewood for insects before bringing it into your home.
  • Food crumbs often collect in and around sofas and chairs. Be sure to vacuum and wipe down these areas often and check them for pests.
  • Roaches like warm places and may gather behind television sets or other electronics. Regularly check these areas for cockroaches hiding out.


  • Roaches can use empty tree holes for nesting sites. Fill these with cement to keep roaches out!
  • Keep areas around your home clear of thick, dead vegetation which outdoor roaches like to live in.
  • Don't let mulch, shrubs or trees directly touch the outside your home. Keep vegetation and firewood at least one foot away from your walls.
