Tips To Reduce Appeal Of Your Las Vegas Home

Here are some quick tips you can do to make your Las Vegas home or business less appealing to cockroaches:

  • Moisture attracts cockroaches. Ensure that your sink cabinets and showers are free of standing water.
  • Reduce humidity in your home, especially in the summer when it’s warm.

  • Store food in airtight containers when possible.
  • Do not leave pet food dishes out overnight, and clean them daily.
