Every city dweller is quite familiar with the scourge of cockroaches. People live in close proximity to one another just about everywhere you go, and their bad habits create a paradise for cockroaches, ants, and other household pests. You might have an immaculately clean home, but that doesn’t help you if you live next door to a hoarder. But the reality is that cleanliness is only part of the solution, and cockroaches are a very stubborn opponent.

Cleanliness should always be your top priority-Even though cleanliness isn’t always enough to prevent infestations or cockroaches and other household pests, it’s a good place to start. Sometimes we get tired after a long day and decide that our kitchens are clean enough. Unfortunately, that’s where trouble starts. Spend the extra time to do a proper cleanup after each meal, and take out your trash every night.

Eliminate Habitats for pests-It’s pretty challenging to eliminate all the places where bugs can nest, but there are a few things you can do. For starters, densely packed storerooms and garages should be dealt with as soon as possible. You probably intended on getting rid of a bunch of things anyway, and that will give you a reason! Cockroaches seem to really like cardboard boxes, so the less of those you have sitting around, the better.

Use Traps-Glue traps are cheap, safe, and available everywhere. They won’t be enough to prevent or eliminate a whole infestation, but they can definitely help you thin the herd when you have stragglers under your cabinets and in your closets.
