Rid appliances of roaches

Roaches are some of the most common pests that are found in our homes. But how exactly do you rid the roaches in electrical appliances? The most appliances where you are likely to find the roaches hiding are like dishwashers, refrigerators, toasters, washing machines, blenders and juicers.

It is usually very annoying when you find them hiding in there when you reach out to these electrical appliances at a time when you want to use them.

Now since there are methods of pest control that you cannot use to get rid of these pests. Like the use of pesticides is out of question since the harmful chemicals should not be sprayed on food appliances. Let us take a look at the possible steps you can take to get rid of these pests.

The use of plastic bags

This is one of the best methods that you can use to kill the pests that have infested the small appliances like radios and toasters. What you do is to place these appliances in plastic bags and wrap them carefully. There should not be any space left for air to pass out. Place these plastic bags in the freezer overnight. Once this is done then they should die of suffocation and you can just shake the appliances for them to fall off.

Use of vacuum

Inspect all the places where they are hiding and vacuum the appliances for these pests to fall off. This will greatly help to get rid of most of the roaches inside those appliances. Once this is done drop the vacuum outside.

Baits

Place these next to these appliances.  They will come out one by one to feed on these baits. This will take some time but surely they will die. Never use insecticides and this may poison them and picking them up will not be safe.
