What Causes Roaches
What causes roaches and is there a way on how to get rid of roaches for good without using an exterminator?
We live in Texas and invariably around this time a year there seems to be a small infestation of roaches that make their way into our house.
This happens despite us not leaving trails of breadcrumbs and spoiled food laying around.
It’s more due to the fact that we have three primary things in our home that roaches relentlessly seek, food, shelter and water.
Roaches love going on the move at two primary times of the year when it’s cold or hot. They’re also drawn to moisture and love to congregate around water pipes.
Without a viable water source, roaches cannot survive and this is why they feast on standing water.
This is a good reason never to let dishwater sit in your sink overnight and why you should fix any leaks right away.
We found a safe pesticide brand that we think is the best roach killer.
This product has been around for about 20 years and is very effective at getting rid of roaches and other invertebrates too.
EcoSmart Ant & Roach Killer is a safe insecticide to use around small children and curious pets.
After you spray you may notice that the product has a strong smell that lingers for a while.
If you’re not turned off by a wintergreen smell and want to get rid of your roaches naturally then we’re sure the smell will at least be tolerable.
This stuff works fast and kills on contact. There’s a lot of research and patents behind the product so it’s certainly not something that was quickly thrown together and marketed.
And if this doesn’t work as well for you as it did for us and many other satisfied customers you can always result to calling a local professional exterminator.
