Best Way to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Best Way to Get Rid of Cockroaches


What is the best way to get rid of cockroaches? There are jokes that the only thing left after
the nuclear apocalypse will be cockroaches and the famous singer you really hate. That’s a little extreme. You’re right, the singer cannot survive without
paparazzi and fans. But since cockroaches survived the extinction of the dinosaurs,
they’ll survive nukes. And I cannot nuke my kitchen to get rid of
them. You could try cleaning your kitchen thoroughly,
sweeping up all the crumbs, not letting anyone eat sitting on the counter, never leaving
dirty dishes out overnight. That just limits their food supply. Denying them food keeps them from spreading
and increasing. You should do that along with any baits you put out. If they survived the asteroid strike, will
they really die if poisoned? There are store bought cockroach bates that
will poison them. It takes time, but will work in many cases. Many cases. Just like there are rats now immune to the
coagulant poison used to kill them in the UK for fifty years, there are now roaches
who avoid the poison gel often used as bait. What else could I try? Mix flour, sugar or cocoa and boric acid together.
They’ll eat the sweet parts and the boric acid. Then what? The acid dissolves their insides. However,
you need to keep the mixture away from pets because a dog licking it will also get sick. Acid sounds dangerous. Boric acid is not dangerous if you wear gloves
and minimize contact. But since it will cake up in humid environments or anywhere damp,
you might want to put it on a paper plate. I could try Harris Roach tablets. Those contain boric acid. And a lure, so you
do not have to mix up your own roach poison.

A Cockroach’s Request to Homeowners

A Cockroach’s Request to Homeowners

I should be chased out of your home? Your house is warm. Your house has free food
for me, and for my family of ten thousand brothers and sisters. With free room and board, free food, free
warmth, and a party every night, why would us cockroaches want to leave? So, if you would be so kind, please unplug
the Home Sentinel pest repeller, as it is very disturbing to us cockroaches. If you insist upon using the Home Sentinel
ultrasonic and electromagnetic pest repeller, us cockroaches will have no choice
but to move out and find a new place to live. The choice is up to you but out of good neighborliness,
we cockroaches are certain you will make the right choice. Now,
did I see an open box of cereal in the cupboard…? Use the Home Sentinel ultrasonic, electromagnetic
and ionic pest repeller, and cockroaches will hate you.

Signs of a Cockroach Infestation

Signs of a Cockroach Infestation


Cockroach infestations are among the most
stubborn of pest problems you may ever have to deal with. When it comes to these nasty
invaders, the earlier you can identify the problem, the better. So what are the signs
of roach infestation? Daytime Sightings – Roaches are nocturnal
pests by nature, preferring to feed and scurry in the darkness. If you are seeing roach activity
during the day, this can mean that you already have a significant problem on your hands.
Overcrowded nests and hiding spaces cause some roaches to spill out into the open during
daylight hours. Egg Casings – Roach egg casings are easy to
spot by their long rounded shape and brownish color. Each casing holds between 10 and 50
eggs. Some roach species will carry the egg case on their backs until they hatch, others
will hide them. One thing is certain, if you find even one egg casing, you know you have
a roach problem. Fecal Droppings – Roach droppings will look
like small piles of coffee grounds or black pepper collected in the corner of drawers
or under appliances. The quantity of visible feces is good indicator of the level of infestation. Odor – A single roach or even several dozen
roaches will not give off a noticeable odor, but a large infestation will definitely get
your nose’s attention. Most experts agree that the smell can be described as oily and
musky. When you are able to smell roaches, you can be sure you have a severe infestation. And it’s that easy with the expert help

The Big Cockroach The bears drove by by bike, behind them came the cat
Backwards on his bike. behind him came the gnats
on to of a balloon. Behind them were the crayfish
Pulled by a lame dog. Wolves on a mare.
Lions in a car. Bunnies in a tram.
A Toad on a broomstick … They rode and had fun,
while eating Gingerbread. Suddenly, from the gateway
came a fearful giant. Redheaded and mustachious
a big black beatle! A cockroach, A cockroach, A cockroach! He growls and screams,
And wiggles his mustache: “Wait, do not rush away, I gobble you down in a jiffy! I’ll gobble and gobble, without mercy! ” The animals trembled and started to faint. The frightened wolves
had eaten each other. The poor crocodile
had swallowed a toad. Then the Hippo spoke to
the crocodiles and whales: “Who is not afraid of the villain
And agrees to fight the monster? As reward for that the hero
will get two frogs and perhaps a fir cone! “- “Do not we fear:
This Giant, We will claw him
We will fang him We will hoof him, And then the merry crowd of animals
rushed away into battle. But vise-a-vise the mustachious fellow
(Ay-yay-yay!) All the beasts turned their tails
(Ay-yay-yay!). Across fields and forests they fled and fled: scared of the cockroach’s whiskers. The Hippo cried out :
“What a shame, how disgraceful! Hey, bulls and rhinos,
Come out of your dens And take the enemy on the horns
Rise to the occasion! ” Nevertheless the bulls and rhinos
answered from their dens: “We would take the enemy on the horns
But too valuable to us are our skins , Besides these days,
not cheap are horns neither. ” so they sat and shivered
this gathering of cowards Hiding in marches and behind mounds. Crocodiles hid bullyragged
all between the nettles, And in a ditch the elephants
buried themselves. They only were heard by their clattering teeth,
they mainly were noticed by their trembling ears Thus the cockroach became winner and lord of woods and fields. Conquering the animals mustachiously (So then he could pace down,… damn!). Then he walked around among them, rubbing his gilded belly: “Bring me, animals, your youngsters and children, Today, I will eat them for dinner! ” Poor, poor beasts!
Howling, sobbing, and roaring! In each den,
in each cave the wicked gormandizer got cursed. Now what kind of mother
would agree to give up Her dear child –
Bear-young, wolfcub, or baby elephant – To an insatiable scarecrow
to torture her little one! Then in the morning
came galloping a kangaroo She saw the big moustachioud fellow, and cried out in the heat of the moment: “Is this a giant?
(Ha ha ha!) It’s just a cockroach! Cockroach, cockroach, little roachy,
Weaklegged worthless little bug, Aren’t you ashamed?
Aren’t you sorry? You – toothy,
You – fanged, Bowing to a bug, Getting conquered by a tiny shrimp. Afraid the hippos whispered: “Shush, what are you saying! Go away from here you!
This will not be a blessing to us! ” Only suddenly from behind the bushes
and from behind the dark-blue groves, Onto the distant fields
flew in some sparrows. Jump and jumping
Yes chik-tweet-tweet, Chika Rika-chik-chirik! It picked and pecked the Cockroach –
That proved not to be a giant. Rightly the giant got gobbled in,
while his whiskers stuck out to to the last. How delighted, how delighted
the whole animal family was. Congratulations, congratulations
Daring Sparrow! The donkeys hailed him
by singing some notes, The goats with their beards
swept for him the road, The sheep, the sheep
ruffled their drums! The blowing owls blew! The crows near the watchtower crowed! The bats – On the roof
waved their handkerchiefs – and danced. And the elephant, the elephant
was so dancing like mad, that he made the ruddy moon

Cockroach IPM in Schools

Cockroach IPM in Schools


Cockroaches have been pestering people since… oh, since about 300 million years
before people even existed. And it is said they will be here long after
humans have vanished off the face of the Earth. So how do you fight these resilient bugs?
And why would you even want to? Well, cockroaches can spread disease and make a mess. Some people are allergic to the shed
skins and droppings from cockroaches, and having cockroaches around
can aggravate asthma. Then there’s the legal aspect: your local Health Department
doesn’t want cockroaches in a kitchen, and they could shut your kitchen down. Find out what your local laws
and regulations say about that! Back to the first question though:
how do you fight cockroaches? With a one-two punch: proper sanitation
together with exclusion will knock cockroaches back. And the good news is that if you keep things clean and keep
the building tight, you will keep out not just cockroaches, but also ants, mice, rats…
and the Health Department. And that’s a good thing. So where do we start? Let’s go see our
University of California IPM Advisor again. Andrew, when we’ve got a cockroach problem,
what’s the first thing we need to do? Well the first thing you want to do is determine
what species of cockroach you have. Proper identification is crucial for making
effective pest management decisions. Decisions? So we need to do different
things for different cockroaches? Absolutely. So we have indoor
species and outdoor species. And of course the strategies and tactics–
the pest management strategies and tactics that we employ– will be different for these two groups. Speaking of outside cockroaches, I’ve seen some
really big cockroaches outside. What are they? Well there are a number of species
that live and breed outdoors. So for instance we have
the Oriental cockroach, the American cockroach, this is the Turkestan cockroach–
this is a new species for California– this is the field cockroach, and the smoky brown cockroach. So as I mentioned, these species live and breed outdoors, but from time to time they’re going to come
indoors for food, water, and shelter. So our job is to keep them out. Exclusion, right? I know a thing or two about exclusion: One of the easiest, cheapest, and most effective things
you can do to keep out cockroaches and other critters is to have door sweeps on all exterior doors. Weather stripping for windows and doors is a good idea too. Drains need small gauge screens so cockroaches
can’t crawl in through the pipes. These things keep outdoor cockroaches outside. But what about indoor cockroaches? Well the most common are German cockroaches. They live and breed indoors. They’re nocturnal so you’re not
likely to see them during the day. So it’s the German cockroach we really have to
worry about after we’ve done all of our exclusion. That’s right. And it’s important to quickly and
effectively manage those German cockroaches. Just one female can produce
30,000 progeny in one year. Wow! I thought I came from a big family. So what do German cockroaches like to eat? They eat all kinds of things:
glue, paper, cardboard, grease that accumulates in kitchens, and then
of course any crumbs that fall by the wayside. They even eat their own kind. Yikes. Where do they hang out? They prefer warm, humid spaces, and of course
they also like tight crevices and small spaces. When they travel, they’re going to be
traveling along walls and corners, and then of course if they sense vibration
or light, they scatter quickly. So I’m not likely to see them running around in
the open during the day. Where would I find them? Well we’re going to be looking under appliances, in cracks
and crevices, and in areas where food may accumulate. So this is a very clean kitchen, we have a
lot of space under and behind appliances, a lot of these shelving units are
on wheels, but let’s take a look, I’m sure we can find something. Lead the way. So in a kitchen like this were going to be paying
special attention to areas behind and under appliances. For instance, this here, we want to make
sure that we get a good look under and you can use a flashlight and a
mirror tool to really help you out here, to see into those hard-to-reach places. So with this mirror tool you can actually
see under these appliances. See that? And behind appliances it’s important to look. So actually here we see some food that’s
fallen back behind this cooking surface. And that’s a great way to attract pests. Speaking of cooking surfaces, keep in mind we’re going
to be accumulating grease here when we’re cooking. So that grease is going to splatter and
accumulate here on the surface itself, on surrounding walls, and then up
above where the vents are. See that? Also with cockroaches we want to pay
special attention to cracks and crevices. So this seam here, between these
cooking units, is a great example. Great. Thanks Andrew. So when you’re stomping around
during the day, cockroaches will be hiding. To monitor for them use sticky traps. Place the trap in or near typical cockroach hiding places
to determine where they’re living and breeding. You may want to draw yourself a map so
that you can find all of your traps later. Because you will be coming back, again and again,
to check and replace them. And remember, any cockroach that gets stuck on a sticky trap
is one less roach for you to have to worry about. After monitoring for a while, you’ll start to get
a sense of how big a problem you have. So if it’s only one field cockroach in a utility room,
your attack can be as simple as this… If it’s 10 German cockroaches in a school kitchen,
we get to work. Remove food, water, and clutter that
might provide a hiding place. In other words, keep the place clean and tidy. Everyone should wipe up spills immediately. If anyone eats in a classroom, they
should clean up after themselves. The custodial staff should empty trash
and recyclables at the end of each day. The art of good vacuuming means getting not just
the floors, but also the baseboards and under appliances. And this baby is not just any old vacuum. It has a HEPA filter so it removes eggs, roaches,
and shed skins without causing a dust cloud. Vacuuming up all that cockroach stuff stops
the next generation of cockroaches, and removes the allergens that can trigger asthma. In the kitchen, don’t hose down the floor. Hosing sprays
water and food particles up and under the appliances, creating a tasty buffet for cockroaches. Use a mop instead. Remember, cockroaches will eat just about anything– so make sure you scrub the drains as well since
cockroaches will eat all the scum in there. Make sure you check under sinks. It’s dark here,
it’s moist, it’s home sweet home to cockroaches. Fix any leaky pipes, wipe up any water, and
keep the area clean and clutter-free. After all that hard work and cleaning, you don’t
want a bunch of little feet tracking the dirt back in, so keep the little guys out. Yes,
I’m still talking about cockroaches. This is your best friend when it
comes to cracks, crevices, and holes. Seal as many as you can both inside and
outside with appropriate sealant like this. Check this out: molding usually has a space behind it. If molding is loose, it makes for a
great hiding place for cockroaches. So look for loose molding, and seal it up. Store all food in tightly sealed containers –
not in cardboard – and on metal wire shelves. That way you’re giving cockroaches
no place to hide and no food to eat. And if you’ve done all that… you may still have cockroaches. As I said, they’re hard to get rid of.
You may need to use a pesticide. Just remember, pesticide treatments will be much more
effective if you start off with all that cleanup we just did. Self-contained baits are the most effective option.
The risk of pesticide exposure to people is low. And because cockroaches share the bait, as well as eat
their fallen comrades, it affects the entire population quickly. Gel or paste baits can be used in cracks and crevices. Use a bait gun or a syringe to apply
them where no one can get to them. Refresh baits as needed; they can
dry out quickly and become useless. What about these?
Aerosol sprays, foggers… They only kill the cockroaches the pesticide touches.
And they drive the ones that survive into other areas. So now you have an even bigger problem.
Plus you could have pesticide residue all over the place. So let’s say you’ve been dealing with cockroaches
for the past, oh, it feels like a million years. How are you doing?
Are you making headway? Well check your notes!
Remember to keep good records. Especially if you had to use pesticides. That’s the
best way to learn how to tackle pests effectively. In our next episode we’ll move up the food chain…
to mice and rats. Don’t miss it.

Cockroach Inspection – Learn Where Roaches Hide


Roaches are nocturnal, so roach inspections
are usually conducted at night. The only tool you will need to inspect for
roaches is a flashlight. Most roach species prefer dark, moist areas
to hide and breed. Typically kitchens and bathrooms are the first rooms to be infested,
so these areas should be inspected first . Use your flashlight to look behind or under refrigerators,
stoves, microwaves, dishwashers, sinks, or cabinets. Roaches may also be found in or
around floor drains, inside the motor areas of refrigerators and microwaves, behind wall
mounted pictures or clocks, under floor mats, behind wall paper, and in cracks and crevices
in cabinets. You will also be able to detect roaches by
the feces they leave behind. Feces are often the size of coffee grounds. Check inside cabinets
around the hinges, the cracks and crevices in drawers, the door gasket of the refrigerator,
and in other suspected hiding places. Roaches will also lay egg cases called oothecae.
This is a sign that an infestation is present. Some species of roaches will drop these egg
cases in the same areas that you have previously checked. These cylindrical egg cases can vary
in size from about 5mm to 10mm and are tan to dark brown.
