Controlling Ants and Roaches in Corpus Christi

Have you ever been too embarrassed to invite people over to your house because of an ant or roach problem that won’t go away? If so, then you’re not alone. There’s a fairly large number of people who struggle with the same issues of ant and roach control. Unfortunately, the peak season for roaches and other insects is coming. The hot and humid months of summer are when roach and ant populations can plague South Texas homes. As temperatures continue to rise, more people around the Coastal Bend will have to deal with pest control problems in their homes (which will cause high levels of anxiety and embarrassment).

Tips for Controlling Ants and Roaches

When it comes to roach and ant control, you have one weapon at your disposal. There are many types of baits, gels, and strips with a lethal ant and roach killer that’s disguised as a sweet, carbohydrate-rich food source. When they consume it, the delayed action of the poison gives them time to take it back to their colony (where it can spread). With this kind of “domino effect,” it can even kill the queen.

Here are some other strategies you can implement to take your ant and roach control methods to another level:

  • Sweep you kitchen and bathroom floors at least once a day, and vacuum your carpet on a regular basis to pick up any food crumbs that can attract ants and roaches.
  • Promptly and properly dispose of any trash in your house, because food left in a garbage can will attract ants and roaches.
  • Never leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight. They should be cleaned and put away before you go to bed. Even a few dirty plates left out overnight will attract ants and roaches.
  • Store any dry foods (such as unused pasta and rice) in tightly sealed containers. Grain and flour products that are left unused will act like proverbial magnets for insects.
  • Remove brush and leaf piles around your home to keep insects from building nests and colonies. A landscape that isn’t well-maintained is an ideal habitat for pests.
  • Repair leaky faucets to keep any standing pools of water inside or outside your home. Moisture attracts roaches, ants, and other insects. So, it’s important to eliminate any sources of water around your home.
