How to prevent cockroaches

• Seal the entrances. Close off cracks and holes around utility
 pipes that provide easy access to your home.
• Vacuum. Early and often is best for reducing harmful
 cockroach allergens.
• Ventilate. Air out basements and crawl spaces to
 prevent moisture buildup.
• Act quickly. If you find evidence of an infestation, contact a
 licensed pest professional to inspect and treat the problem.
• Keep a spotless kitchen. To prevent infestations, keep all
 your food and garbage in sealed containers and dispose of it
 regularly. Clean behind and under appliances regularly, as
 these are favorite hiding spots for cockroaches.
