Cockroaches can be big or small, but no matter what size they are, they aren't a pest you want in your home. If you've spotted a cockroach, it's more than likely that you have more than just the one. You could have anywhere from tens to thousands of cockroaches in your home. If you have seen the cockroach during the day, or you've seen multiple dead cockroaches, you probably have an infestation. It's best to hire a professional pest control company to get rid of these pests. See below for other things you can do to get rid of these pests.
Set Off A Bug Bomb
A bug bomb can be effective in getting rid of multiple different pests, including cockroaches. If you have a lot of cockroaches, a bug bomb can help kill these pests throughout your home, including on multiple floors of your home. The aerosol spray coming from the bug bomb can travel far and get throughout your home, which can help kill these pests, even if they are hiding in cabinets or in other areas of your home. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on how to use the bug bomb, and set off multiple bombs depending on the size of your home. Once the bug bomb is done, you should vacuum up the dead cockroaches and empty the canister of your vacuum outside of your home to prevent any further pest problems.
Sprinkle Diatomaceous Earth
You can sprinkle diatomaceous earth around your home, especially beneath cabinets or around the edges of a room where these pests may be moving about. The diatomaceous earth powder will help to kill these pests, as they will die from dehydration. This pesticide is all-natural and can be used anywhere in your home. When you find dead cockroaches, be sure to clean them up immediately. Other pests could feed off of the deceased cockroaches, so clean them up.
Clean Your Home Thoroughly
Cockroaches are looking for food and can feed off of the grease splatters on your stovetop. They can also be using a leak in your cabinet beneath your sink for a water source. Clean your home thoroughly and make any necessary repairs to help get rid of these pests. If you aren't giving them food and water, they aren't going to be attracted to your home, and you can get rid of them a lot easier.
If you have an issue with cockroaches, hire a pest control company to get rid of them for you.
