Your Tulsa exterminator can help you to eliminate cockroaches in your home. Cockroaches are a pantry pest that find a way into our homes because they love the temperature that we keep our homes at and the food that we keep in our pantries. They are tropical pests that enjoy temperatures right in the 70s and 80s just as we do. Because we keep our homes at these temperatures in the cold winter months and the hot summer months, these insects are attracted to us and our way of life. So in this article, let’s take a good hard look at cockroaches, their life cycle, and what you and your Tulsa exterminator could do to help get rid of these insects from your home.


One of the most important things you can do to keep cockroaches out of your home is to make sure that your house is clean. Sanitation is number one. A dirty kitchen could be a Smorgasbord for these insects. Dirty dishes left in the sink can feed a whole slew of these insects. The harborage points inside walls and behind appliances can be full of bugs and therefore it’s important to keep food and other items away from them. Closing and sealing unused food items is also important. An open bag of chips or something like that could also create an issue. Check out our reviews!

Cockroaches enjoy coming out at night. While they’re not naturally nocturnal, they do come out when there is no one around. This keeps them from safe from predators. It’s because of this that often in the morning when you come out and turn on the light, you’ll see a number of these insects scurry away. Making sure that your teenagers keeps a clean room is also important. While food is of course the most important thing, clutter also can give these insect places to hide. They also make it hard for your Tulsa exterminator to come in and spray because these are places that they cannot spay.


There are many over-the-counter solutions that you could use to eliminate cockroaches. The problem is none of them work. The can of pesticide that you get from your local hardware store is a repellent pesticide. This means that the insects can sense it and will run away from it wherever it is sprayed. If you trap a group of cockroaches in a wall, or behind an appliance with a spray, they will continue to reproduce until the spray breaks down about 30 days later. Then you’ll have twice as much of a problem than you did when you started. That’s why it’s important to call your Tulsa exterminator to help with this issue.
