Cockroach droppings, surfaces where the roaches have skittered and airborne roach allergens are also health hazards. Thankfully, there is a lot you can do to protect yourself from this dangerous bug.
Identify the Specific Pest You are Dealing With
Currently, there are more than 3,000 known species of cockroaches in the world. Four of these species are commonly found in homes.
Understanding the species you are dealing with will make fighting them easier. Different species have different feeding habits. The more you understand what you are handling, the higher your odds of destroying them forever.
An easy way of knowing the species you have in your house is to catch a few of the bugs. The recommended traps are the sticky ones, which are simple traps made using cardboard and strong adhesives. For effective trapping, add small amounts of food crumbs at the center of the trap. A little of this goes a long way. Next, place them strategically. Random locations won’t work well. You should place them in areas where the cockroaches pass through. After you catch a few, compare with online sources.
