Cockroaches enjoy setting up home in the bathroom just as well as they like other rooms. The bathroom has food, water, and plenty of tiny crevices and dark spaces for the entire roach family. In no time, a cockroach infestation in the bathroom can happen, and getting rid of this problem can be quite challenging. Cockroaches cause the same problems in the bathroom as other places in the home- allergies, risk of disease, and of course, the pest is filthy! Keep cockroaches out of the bathroom without much effort with the information on this page.
Make Sure the Bathroom Isn’t Cockroach-Friendly
A cockroach-friendly bathroom has all the right things this pest needs for comfort, including food, water, and warmth. If your bathroom is cockroach-friendly, evicting this pest becomes far more challenging. Create the opposite type of bathroom to reduce the stress caused by unwanted, unwelcome guests.
Think roaches eat human food only? You’re so wrong. The bathroom contains items like shaving cream, soap, and toothpaste, all of which taste delish to a cockroach. Keep these items neatly put away and clean up any drips or spills immediately.
Leak Repair: DIY or Call a Pro
Leaks attract cockroaches and a host of additional problems, including mold. If you notice a plumbing leak, even something as small as a drip from the faucet, get in touch with a plumbing professional or begin a little DIY work if you’re confident in yourself. Cockroaches prefer damp, dark areas and a leak provides them with a pristine place to “call home.”
Seal it Up
Check for any tiny holes, cracks, or crevices in the walls, cabinets, floors, and other areas of the bathroom. Use a flashlight to check dark spaces like underneath the sink. Repair these problems as soon as possible since cockroaches love hiding out in these areas and spotting them is not easy.
