Are you wondering what the best tactic is when it comes to killing roaches? Roaches have always been a common household pest, but they are becoming more prolific in the New Jersey area. A roach infestation can be caused by a dirty home, but this is not always the reason for a roach problem. Sometimes the cleanest homes can have roaches, as they are just looking for a place to hide and something to eat. No matter the reason for the infestation, there are several methods for eradicating roaches. One common household remedy is ammonia treatments. Below we list a few tactics that you can use to instantly kill roaches in your home. However, it is important to keep in mind that if you see a roach in your house, it usually means that there are more. We highly suggest that you contact a professional pest control company to get the situation inspected for you. Our team of professional pest control experts here at Horizon Pest Control can help get rid of not just one roach in your home, but all roaches that may not be noticeable all at once.

How to Kill Roaches With Ammonia
If you are attempting to remove roaches with ammonia, the recommended method is to mix one-part ammonia with one part water, and put the mixture into a spray bottle. When you begin treatment, this ammonia and water mixture should be used to clean all floors, counters and other hard surfaces in the home. It should also be sprayed directly onto roaches, as it kills them within minutes. While this is a good way to clean your home, it is problematic with regard to treating a roach infestation. It must be sprayed directly on every roach and every one of their eggs in order to be effective.
Problems With Ammonia Treatments
Roaches hide inside walls, floors, ductwork and other places that are nearly impossible to get into. In addition, one roach infestation can involve thousands and thousands of roaches. It would take days of around-the-clock work to hunt down all of the roaches in your home. To add to the problem, a female roach lays about 50 eggs at a time, and these eggs can hatch in as little as a month, depending upon the temperature and other conditions in your home. It is impossible to keep abreast of an infestation when you are dealing with a pest with such astronomical reproduction rates.
How To Kill Roaches With Roach Bait
Another tactic you can use to kill roaches is roach bait. What is roach bait? Roach bait is essentially a pest control exterminator. Roach baits are simple and easy to apply; however, make sure that you do not spray pesticides as this can contaminate areas such as kitchen countertops and appliances. Roach baits are the better alternative to pesticide spray because they are cleaner and will not risk contaminating sensitive areas. A professional pest control company can help kill roaches in sensitive areas such as your kitchen.
