How to Prevent Cockroaches in Kitchen Cabinets. Cockroaches are one of the most common household pests. They’re also one of the most hated, especially in the kitchen. If you’ve noticed roach droppings or sightings of these pests, it might be time to take preventative measures to keep them from invading your kitchen cabinets. Roaches are drawn to dirty areas and moist areas like those found in cabinets.
One way to make sure they don’t come into contact with your food is by replacing any clutter in cabinet spaces – including newspapers, cardboard boxes, and other types of paper products that can provide a food source for roaches. Keeping surfaces clean with soap and water will also help deter roaches from coming into contact with your food items at all times.
