Have you ever heard about what happened in the early 2000s? As people watched a television commercial play out, suddenly a cockroach began crawling around on their television screen. One man threw his shoe at his TV and broke it. Another person threw a helmet. But the cockroach wasn't even real. It was just part of the television commercial! It got taken off the air fairly quickly. Wouldn't it be nice if getting rid of cockroaches was really that easy? Well, actually, it can be, with a little help.

Before we tell you how you can get rid of cockroaches easily, let's review some things you can do to keep cockroaches out in the first place. Here are some simple steps you can follow:

  • Dry up any moist/humid areas in your home with fans or dehumidifiers. Don't leave standing water around sinks, tubs or toilets.

  • Carefully clean your home, paying close attention to areas where food is present.

  • Place dirty dishes in a sink full of soapy water instead of in a stack on the counter.

  • Store all food in the refrigerator or in tightly sealed containers.

  • Only put pet food down at mealtimes.

  • Carefully inspect the outside of your home and seal up any gaps or cracks.

  • Make sure all of your screens and door sweeps are in good working order.

  • Trim back bushes and trees from your home.

  • Keep a dry area around your home by creating a barrier of crushed rocks.

  • Do not leave pet food, or any other food outside.

  • Make sure all garbage cans are properly sealed and stored away from your house.
