7/21/2014 - Got Roaches?

Several condo and townhome residents have reported having roaches in their units.

Yuck. And double yuck if you are new to Florida and this is your first exposure to the topic of roaches. But this is Florida and we do have roaches.

That said, here is what I recommend if you have roaches in your unit.

1. Get a quick overview of what you are up against by Googling "getting rid of roaches". What you will find is that roaches like darkness, water, and food. And there is an almost endless list of ways to get rid of them which means there is probably no best way. Although most experts agree that getting rid of exposed food and water is a good starting point.

2. If you are renting, call your landlord and report the problem. Hopefully they will get a pest control company to come out to assess the problem and treat your unit if needed.

3. If you own your own unit, you have the choice of calling a professional pest control service - I recommend Hometown - the company that currently does the outside pest control for our community. Or you can go the do-it-yourself route.

4. Whether you rent or own, consider taking a few common sense steps including getting rid of all food sources and water sources - particularly in dark places like under your sinks. And use a highly rated form of roach gel like Advion Syngenta Cockroach Gel  or Combat Source Kill Max Roach Killing Gel.
