Preventing Cockroaches in your home
Regardless of how clean you keep your kitchen, t’s likely there’s at least one hiding there. They are some of the most common pests found in homes.
A cockroach sighting can end dinner, a party or a date. One roach sighting in a restaurant can even ruin a Yelp rating!
Though a pest professional knows the best course of treatment and is educated on the varieties of roaches, there are a few things you can do.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
10 ways to keep roaches out of your kitchen:
- Eliminate food sources.
- Remove unwanted food from kitchen cabinets and your sink.
- Empty the garbage regularly.
- Seal food items in airtight containers.
- Put away pet food.
- Clean your surfaces.
- Clean out your drains.
- Seal off cracks and entrances.
- Remove dirty dishes from kitchen sink at night.
- Run the garbage disposal frequently.

Local or national pest control
Google “local pest control” first
Thanks to big budgets, national marketing, and branding companies have successfully made their names a fixture.
When deciding between a local or a national pest company, try reading the Google reviews. You can’t help but notice that our customers frequently refer to our employees by name in the reviews.
National pest control companies aren’t bad. They are large and successful pest control companies. We easily recognize their names and logos and feel like we “know” them.
Why choose a local pest control company?
- A local pest control company may be able to charge you less for the same services.
- We live here, too. A local company will be well aware of all the seasonal pest infestations that are happening where YOU are, not where THEY are.
- A local pest control company can work with your schedules and needs, not what “corporate” tells them to do.
We are a locally owned pest control business.
Working with a locally owned business like Lawn and Pest Solutions means that you are getting very personal service. We work hard to retain our employees for years so that customer relationships are solid and built on trust.

In addition to providing reliable technicians, our owner Paul Welborn feels personally responsible for each customer. It is not uncommon for him to show up at a home to help solve an unusual pest issue. He is committed to making sure the customer gets the best possible service.
Whether loading up trucks at 6:45 a.m. or frying up fish at employee appreciation day, Paul is there. Creating personal relationships with his employees and investing in their futures is important to Paul. He believes that qualified trained technicians who want to stay with the company is key to keeping customers happy.
When the company sees itself as a team, everyone benefits, including the customers. This is why it is important to choose a local pest control company over a national one.

Hiring a Pest Professional
How do you know when you need to hire a pest professional? Is it the first time you walk the pesticide aisle of a home improvement store?
The big bags of chemicals and small containers of mysterious liquids are intimidating. The fine print on the bags and bottles along with the smells of their contents are a lot to process.
You may say to yourself “I don’t know what I am doing here”. Maybe it is time for you to consider the benefits of hiring a pest professional!
You may ask yourself…
Is this the right formula?
Is this safe for my pet?
What will happen if my children touch/eat this? Where do I spray?
Do I spray it once a week? Month? Year?
What is in this stuff?
And for this writer… Where did we put the sprayer, and how do I get this smelly stuff inside of it?
With all of that in mind, a DIY insecticide program should bring up a lot of uncertainties.
Hiring a pest professional sounds like a good idea.
Most of us pay someone more knowledgeable to change our oil, rotate our tires and resolve plumbing problems. Why do we think we can fend off an infestation of roaches?
