New Mexico,

Here are a few tips for controlling and eliminating roaches. If you have a serious problem, you should hire an exterminator.

- Control clutter. This will help to eliminate hiding spots for the roaches, and make it easier to spot them.

- Eliminate the food source. Clean up crumbs and spills as soon as they occur. Make sure all food packages are properly discarded and removed. Keep food items sealed in airtight containers. Do not leave fruits, vegetables or candy dishes lying around.

- Pet food is often a major attractant for roaches. Keep food dishes clean and remove any remaining food after meals.

- Place bait traps in areas where cockroaches hide. Roaches love to hide underneath furniture and appliances and inside cupboards.

- Use a vacuum to remove cockroaches and their droppings. Place them in a plastic bag and freeze them. This will help to control the population.
