Roach infestation can be a daunting thing to deal with but few other things can be more frustrating than a roach infestation. These living pests will make themselves comfortable enough in your kitchen, bathroom, and other living areas, as they search for food. Sadly, they multiply very fast, intensifying the trouble. Ontario is a city of dreams, comprising of so many residential problems such as transport, water shortage, and rise of cockroaches in the Kitchener (not so big but still a problem) of most of the residents in the waterloo region.

So, what if you had enough time spending with these creepy living creatures, then let’s find out a way to stop these roaches to grow in numbers in Waterloo Region, but before diving into that, here is everything you need to know about how to decrease their number in Ontario (Waterloo Region)

Problem to look upon!
If we observe, we can see a huge increase in number from the last three years and it's not only in the waterloo region but throughout Ontario and now it is becoming on the verge of an alarming condition to look upon. Even the residents are now habitual to it, they are okay living with this critter species, which can be a source of many diseases, such as asthma and serious illness from e-coli, salmonella, and different food pathogens, indeed not a good idea to appreciate. However, many of them have tried various techniques to get rid of them but failed to do so and now have given up.

To try and kill off colonies!
Crushing cockroaches can felt so miserable, but due to their increasing stamina in resisting pesticides means, the crashing option is not a bad option at all Other physical means of sanitation include vacuuming, which helps minimize numbers before baiting or spraying.

Spraying off
Although sprays can prove to be an effective method in treating the prominent members of a roach infestation, they are not recommended. Avoid using aerosol sprays because, according to the Pesticide Research Institute's page, the use of an aerosol spray or fogger always results in contamination of all surfaces in the treated areas and also inhalation and asthma hazards. Moreover, spraying might kill a cockroach but also make them pushes away further into the areas that are difficult to access

According to the report, the Waterloo region gets regular complaints related to cockroaches more than any other region, but there needs cockroach treatment in Waterloo to deal with this issue in such multi-residential buildings because infestations will gravitate to move if not treated properly.

One of the main issues in tackling such large infestations is getting everyone prepped for the incoming situation and then arranging such a big team to follow up the method correctly.

Home remedies

But what if you are facing this issue on small scale? You don’t need to call any professionals for that, you can treat it at home as well if it is under controllable limits. But before going into that you should be aware of what things attracts the cockroaches most to your home?
No matter what type of pest it is - whether it is roaches, ants, rodents, or termites, as they’re all most likely in search of food, water, and shelter, which is easily available in your homes. Cockroaches, in general, are in search of warm, humid climates like Ontario have and are usually attracted to:
Garbage
Crumbs on the floors
Dirty dishes
Extra moisture
Excess pet food left on the floor
Leftover food in containers

Here are some remedies you can look upon.

Traps!
One effective method of getting rid of them is to buy store traps available in the markets. The device work by using a scent or other bait in order to attract roaches. When the roaches come across to know the place of the bait, they become caught in a sticky substance and got trapped inside. It will possibly take to two to three weeks to see results.

Liquid Concentrates
Another product you can check in stores is a liquid concentrate to reduce the growing population of roaches. The liquid can be sprayed into crevices and cracks and in other areas that are likely to be the hiding place for cockroaches. You can also put the solution into your moping water and can sweep the floor and wipe counters with the solution! I can bet you if you are wondering to get rid of roaches for a time being, this method will go to dos wonders for you.

Boric Acid
It is one of the best home remedies to stop the growing pest. For this method mix an equal amount of boric acid sugar and flour. Set these balls into the targeted places like bait. The attractants of this recipe are flour and sugar, once the cockroach digest it, the boric acid will do its work to kill the filthy roach. While this is an extremely effective technique at killing roaches, but be careful well in handling boric acid, as it can be extremely dangerous for your pets especially furry pets.

In the end
Living in a city like Ontario is a beautiful experience to do but coping with these kinds of problems may prove to be hectic sometimes. All you need is proper planning and best exterminator for roaches in Kitchener
