How to deal with roach infestations

More than 90 percent of California attractions are closed to visitors this winter because of the spread of the roach, the first statewide roach-infestation since the 1970s, according to the California Department of Parks and Recreation.

The state also reported that more than 4,200 roach deaths have been reported in 2016, with nearly half of those occurring in California.

A number of new restrictions have been introduced, including restrictions on food and beverage purchases, and limits on outdoor activities.

But despite the new restrictions, many visitors to California still visit the state’s best attractions, including the San Francisco Zoo, Disneyland, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Los Angeles Aquarium, according the California Parks & Recreation website.

The most common types of roach found in California are the green and brown, which are most common in warm climates, according Parks & Rec.

There are also many brown and yellow types, which prefer cooler temperatures, the website said.

Here’s how to deal it: 1.

Be careful with water sources, including swimming pools and hot tubs.

California roaches are not attracted to chlorine, but can become resistant to it, so use water that is at least one part chlorine.


Avoid standing in hot, dry conditions.

Roaches are attracted to water that contains salts, which can cause dehydration and illness.


Use hand sanitizer and wipe hands after eating or drinking.

Roach feces are a common sight in restaurants, bathrooms and bathrooms of hotels, and can be found on toilet seats and in the food preparation areas of restaurants.


Keep pets indoors and out of water sources.

Avoid areas with water that has been flushed, and wear rubber gloves, a respirator and long sleeves.


Use a good-quality respirator.


Don’t leave food out for roaches.

They may not eat it or pass it on.

Roache populations in the United States are not yet clear, but experts have warned that they could be growing rapidly.

Experts say the numbers are increasing because of warmer winters, a lack of proper housing, food restrictions and other environmental factors.
