Cockroaches are not a pest that many people enjoy dealing with but just may have to at some point. It isn’t always your own fault if you find that cockroaches are invading your home. Often times it’s due to your neighbor’s lack of cleanliness or an abandoned home near your own. However, if you know that a neighbor nearby has cockroaches or have an abandoned home nearby, you should consider preventative pest measures to prevent these cockroaches from taking over your home. Beaumont California Pest & Termite offers preventative treatment plans for cockroaches and many other pests.
Cockroaches in Beaumont, California
Cockroaches can adapt to practically any environment which is why they are such a common pest in Beaumont. These scavenging insects will look for anything organic and eat it. Many times they prefer meat products, grease, starches and sweets but other items tend to be a popular food source such as:
- Books or Book Bindings
You most likely won’t see a cockroach during your day to day routine. Cockroaches will sleep during the day in places hard to see or reach in your home. Including under or in kitchen cabinets, under or behind stoves and refrigerators and even small crevices found throughout your home. During the night is when they begin their scavenger hunt for food and water.
If you do happen to notice a cockroach during the day you might have a bigger problem on your hands than just a few cockroaches invading your home. Should this happen to you call our Beaumont cockroach exterminators right away!

Preventing Beaumont Cockroaches
To prevent Beaumont cockroaches from invading your home consider the following prevention methods.
1. Do let your dirty dishes pile up. It’s not uncommon to have a busy night and lack the time to clean up the kitchen, piling the dirty dishes in the sink for tomorrow. While this is typically just fine, if there are cockroaches currently residing in an abandoned home nearby, you risk them finding your home and taking advantage of the dirty dish accumulation.
2. Always put your food away and keep it in sealed containers. Make sure the lids are on property and tightly as cockroaches can fit in small crevices. The same applies to any pet food you might have easily accessible to cockroaches. Make it a habit to feed your pets only when it’s eating time, keeping the food stored and put away the rest of the time.
3. Always take our your garbage. Keep any trash cans outside tightly closed with lids. Don’t allow multiple trash bags to accumulate in one given area before getting rid of your trash. Letting it pile up is an invitation to the nearby cockroaches.
