Make sure your house is clean
The best thing you can do to ensure a roach free home is to make sure you never get them in the first place.
They are attracted to grease, food left out of the counter, piles of dirty dishes in the sink and other forms of mess.

2) Don’t give them any places to hide
You should do all that you can to make sure cockroaches have nowhere to hide.

Every pile of rubbish or collection of boxes is a spot where cockroaches can gather.
You should also try and seal up entry points like the bottom crack in doors or windows.
