Cockroaches In Your Kitchen: What NJ Homeowners Need To Know

Have you spotted a cockroach scurrying under your refrigerator or found these nasty pests elsewhere in your kitchen? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone. Homeowners from Closter, Essex Fells, and Deal as well as throughout New Jersey often reach out to Arrow Pest Control for help getting rid of roaches that have infested their kitchens and homes. In today’s blog post, we’re going to dive in and discuss why they’re a common problem and what to do if they show up in your space.

What to do if it’s too late and cockroaches are already active 

By implementing the cockroach prevention tips above, you may be able to prevent cockroaches from infesting your kitchen and reduce the associated risks to your health and home. But if cockroaches have already made an appearance in your home, your best course of action is to contact a pest control company for professional cockroach control. 

Risks associated with cockroaches 

First and foremost, when cockroaches infest kitchens, they quickly establish a presence and start reproducing. They also contaminate food and surfaces with bacteria and pathogens that can cause illness and have the ability to trigger allergies and asthma in some people. 

How to prevent cockroaches from taking over your kitchen

To prevent cockroaches from infesting your kitchen, there are several things you can do including:

  • Keep your kitchen clean: Wipe down counters and vacuum/wash floors regularly to remove food particles and crumbs that can attract cockroaches.
  • Store food properly: Keep food in sealed containers and avoid leaving open containers or crumbs on countertops.
  • Seal cracks and crevices: Use caulk or other sealants to seal up any gaps in walls, floors, and foundations that could serve as entry points for cockroaches.
  • Fix leaks: Cockroaches need water to survive, so fixing any leaks in your kitchen or other areas of your home can help deter them.
