How to Get Rid of Cockroaches
Serving The Los Angeles Metro Area
If you’ve seen even a single cockroach scrambling across your floor, chances are you already have an infestation on your hands. Cockroaches spread pheromone trails that constantly invite other roaches to partake of resources, and roaches are also fast reproducers. Where there is one cockroach, there are definitely more, and you need to take care of the infestation as quickly as possible! Before you run to the store for ineffective and weak cockroach treatments, there are a couple of basic steps to ensure your commercial space is as unattractive to cockroaches as possible.

How to Prevent Cockroaches
Even with bug spray and roach motels, if your property offers hiding places and food, cockroaches aren’t going anywhere. Cleaning and proper food policies are absolutely essential for keeping your commercial building roach-free.
- Eliminate Food Sources for Cockroaches: Roaches are attracted to fruits, vegetables, crumbs, and garbage. They can feast on all of this, and if you make it easy for them, they will be more than happy to do just that.
- Sweep, Mop, and Clean to Prevent Cockroaches: Is your commercial space being regularly and thoroughly cleaned? If you’ve seen a cockroach, check that schedule again. Getting more intense about cleaning can help the problem from getting worse. Make sure employees are using a disinfectant, to prevent roach pheromone trails from remaining.
- Eliminate Hiding Places: Get rid of all clutter, old newspapers, pile of unorganized items, old cardboard boxes, or anything else that could hide cockroaches. Any warm, dark place is attractive to roaches–check your boiler room.
- Sprays or Chemicals: Boric acid and roach traps can help to reduce a cockroach infestation, but the previous steps need to be in place as well. Avoid roach sprays if you are any of your employees suffer from allergies. If you operate a business that sees frequent customers or clients, avoid it altogether. Sprays wear off quickly, and aren’t really effective anyway.
