Do you want to know how to get rid of roaches fast? I’m going to guess that by fast, you’re thinking of just days. I’m not going to lie to you. There is no way to get rid of them completely in that short of a time period. The truth is it takes time. Depending on what you’re doing, it could take as long as a year or more. Don’t give up just yet though. There are certain things you can use and do to get way faster results than it would normally take.
Keep the house clean
I don’t know how many times I’ve repeated this, or how many more times I have to repeat it. I have to keep repeating it because it is critical to getting any success. If you don’t do your best to keep your house clean and free of food for the roaches then all your efforts will be useless.
Keeping your house clean has the following benefits:
- Encourages the roaches to move out to somewhere else with more food.
- Prevent more roaches from entering your home.
- Force remaining roaches to eat the poisonous roach baits.
Aside from food, there are other things in your house that could be contributing to the well-being of roaches. I have already covered them more in-depth in my other post.
Don’t tackle the problem blindly
Many make the mistake of thinking all they have to do is buy one product and it will get rid of the pests. Even worse, some will blindly buy a product labeled to “do the job” without even looking into what it is, what it does, how to use it correctly and if it will really work as promised. You need to understand the answers to those questions to get the fastest results.
Take the typical “roach spray” for example. On the label, it promises to kill them on contact. Most of the time, it will kill them if you spray them directly. However, some people don’t understand what it means to have roaches in the house. They assume they just have to spray those they see and eventually they’ll all die off from it.
If you’ve read anything else on this website, you’ll immediately understand how wrong that can be. You have to understand that to get rid of roaches, you need to be able to attack as many of them as possible in one single blow. Sprays work, but they must be used properly and you must use the right spray. They must also be used in combination with the right treatments to get the fastest results. Read my other post for more on this.
Use the right stuff
There are numerous options when it comes to getting rid of roaches, but some work faster than others. If you’re impatient and need to see results now to keep your hopes up then use synthetic pesticides like Demon WP. Of course, following the previous guideline, you need to look into how it works and how to use it properly. Try Demon WP and take a look at my other post about how to use it and what to use it with for the fastest result.
Be persistent and be consistent
Again, I don’t know how many times I have to repeat this. I don’t think I can over stress how important this is. If you apply treatment one day and skip it the next, or you keep the house clean and then trash it the next then you won’t get any closer to getting rid of them. You have to do this every single day. You have to keep the house free of trash and clutter every night before you go to bed.
Although getting instant results is impossible, I urge you to follow the guidelines mentioned here to get the fastest results. Keep in mind that it is important to learn as much as you can when deal with these pests. The more you know, the better your chances are at successfully getting rid of them. I hope this has helped you in your quest to find the answers to how to get rid of roaches fast. Check out the other posts on this website for more information.
