How do I keep sewer roaches out of my house?
I had wasps in my apartment and I used raid foggers to kill them, and I returned home to find dying wasps and a sewer roach in my room on the carpet-IT WAS HUGE. I'm terrified and have not been home since. I see the sewer roaches outside everywhere and I'm on the 2nd floor and I have no idea how it got in. I talkedd to my downstairs neighbor and she's seen 6 of them. I'm scared to death and I just signed a 1 yr lease..how can I avoid them ever coming in again if they haven't already-I'M SCARED TO DEATH TO GO HOME!??
You can spray all of your interior and exterior door frames, window frames and places where cables, pipes and wires enter through your walls with a good residual product such as Demon WP to help stop this pest from entering your apartment. With apartment living you do have the issue of having pests from your neighbors apartment enter into your apartment through the walls. You can help reduce this risk by sealing up as many cracks and crevices as possible with caulk.
