How To Get Rid of Cockroaches
There are only a few things that are more frustrating and infuriating than a cockroach infestation. These pesky critters will make themselves comfortable in your living area, bathroom, kitchen, and other spots in your home. The problem is that they multiply rapidly, which makes matters worse. In case you are tired of sharing your home with these pests, then you should know some pest control tips to get rid of cockroaches. Types of Cockroaches German cockroaches and American cockroaches are the most common species of cockroaches present here in Myrtle Beach. German cockroaches are dark brown and they are about ½” to 5/8 in size. On the other hand, American cockroaches are much darker and also bigger at around 1-1/2” to 2”. Both kinds of cockroaches are active all year round, but they almost always come out at night to look for food and water. Cockroaches are considered as nocturnal creatures and that is why they mostly spend their days tucked away in the dark and hidden parts of your house. How Cockroaches Enter Your House A few things that attract cockroaches to your house include garbage, dirty dishes in the sink, crumbs on the counters or floor, leftover food, and excess moisture. These pests enter your house for different reasons but attraction is just the first part. They still need to get into your house to wreak havoc. So how do they get in? Simple. They get in through cracks and crevices, holes in the pipes and vents, hitching a ride through boxes or other times, and more.
