It is great to see relatives show up over the holidays but unfortunately, they don’t always arrive alone. Sometimes they have freeloaders with them and we’re not talking about the two-legged kind. The extra guests we’re thinking of are roaches. They have an uncanny way of laying their eggs on, and inside of, travel bags. Plus, the babies and adults are known to scurry inside of open suitcases too. So which roach control measures will keep unwanted hitchhikers at bay?
First off, it can be hard to have a conversation with family members about roaches. As such, there are generally not a lot of preventive measures that can be taken without having “the talk.” However, if you are the one doing the visiting, there are ways to keep bugs out of your bags. For example, you could keep the bags closed when they’re not in use and put them in quarantine upon returning home.
Choosing smooth or hard-top cases that don’t offer roaches safe places to deposit their eggs may also help prevent unwanted travel buddies. And if you absolutely want fabric covered bags, be sure to choose light colors. They may make finding and destroying the roaches’ eggs easier. But it is by no means fail safe. Thus, the only real way to solve these types of holiday dilemmas without causing family drama is to hire a roach control company.
A roach control company can treat guest bedrooms both before and after the holidays. So if the relatives did bring uninvited guests with them, the exterminators will see to it that those freeloaders are evicted in no time flat. Also, they can successfully treat any luggage that you may have had placed in quarantine.
