HYGENE: Regular sanitation and cleanliness around the home is an important factor in helping reduce cockroach population. Rubbish should be disposed of frequently, exposed food scraps should be removed, lids kept on bins, food products placed in sealed packaging, dishes washed and areas with excessive moisture build up kept dry.
