Best Traps To Rid Your Home Of Cockroaches

As one of the most common household pests in the world, cockroaches plague all kinds of residences, leaving many to wonder how to rid their homes of cockroaches. The four most common types of house-infesting cockroach species in the United States are the German, Oriental, American and Smokybrown cockroach. The most common of these is the German cockroach, which is also the hardest to get rid of. 

If you’re curious to know what kinds of traps are the most effective in eliminating cockroaches from your home, read on to find out about cockroach traps from the pros at Pest Control Experts. 

Cockroach Traps

There are three different kinds of cockroach traps on the market that you can pick up at your local hardware store: sticky traps, poisoned bait traps and mechanical traps. All of these traps are designed with three possible outcomes (or a combination thereof): destroying the roach nest, providing information on a roach infestation, or killing roaches individually. 

Sticky Traps

Sticky traps are simple in design and concept and can be relatively effective. If you have a small infestation or think that maybe you just have a roach or two that wander into your home every once in a while, these are the traps for you. These traps won’t eliminate an entire nest, but can add to a much more comprehensive control plan. Sticky roach traps can be really useful as a way of telling you where roach nests are located. By setting them up in various places around your home, you can see where there is a greater concentration of roaches in your home and from there make an educated guess as to where they are coming from.

Bait Traps

Poisoned bait traps are better at attempting to eliminate an entire colony, or at least killing more than one roach at a time. Bait traps are filled with gels or powders that contain both an attractant like pheromones, cockroaches will pick up some of the poison and bring it back to the nest where it will hopefully kill more roaches. These traps won’t work very well if roaches have other food sources.

Mechanical Roach Traps

These cockroach traps catch roaches without the use of chemicals or messy glues. There are many different kinds of these mechanical traps with many different designs, however their overall method is to lure a roach into the trap and then prevent them from climbing out. 

Cockroach Traps May Not Eliminate Your Roach Problem

The problem with finding cockroaches in the home is that you never quite know how many cockroaches are living in your walls or other hidden areas. You may think your infestation is small, but if you are seeing a few cockroaches when you turn your lights on at night, or even worse, if you are seeing them during the day, you might have a much larger infestation than you think. 

If you have seen cockroaches in your home, call an experienced pest professional today to make sure that your entire cockroach problem is taken care of.
