Avoiding Cockroach Allergens

Some people are allergic to cockroaches. They are attracted to food and moisture - including crumbs, cooking grease and plant water. It's important to remove or tightly cover all food and water, especially at night when they are more active.

To get rid of cockroaches you should:

  • Keep the kitchen very clean. Cockroaches are often found around the refrigerator because of food spills and dampness.
  • Avoid leaving food or water out. Keep food in closed containers. Do not leave water sitting in open containers. Cover any food (including pet food) that will be left overnight.
  • Use pesticides to kill cockroaches, if necessary.
  • Seal any cracks around the walls or cabinets where cockroaches can get in.
