    • Dealing with roaches and mice

      Roach droppings and mouse dander are common asthma triggers.

      General roach and rodent prevention tips:

      • Never eat in your child's bedroom.
      • Store food and trash in closed containers.
      • Clean up all spills and crumbs as soon as possible.
      • Mop kitchen floors at least once a week.
      • Clean countertops every day.
      • Take out the trash daily and put a tight lid on the trash can.
      • Seal small cracks and holes in the home where pests can get in.

      Roach specific information

      • Fix water leaks under sinks.
      • Do not leave standing water at the corner of rooms after scrubbing the floor. Dry with a towel.
      • Do not use spray pesticides inside. They can make asthma worse and are dangerous for small kids.
      • Use bait stations, gels or boric acid powder under appliances and other places roaches may hide.
      • Make sure baits and other poisons are out of reach of children.

      Mouse specific information

      • Keep clutter off floors so mice won't build nests there. They love warmth and corners.
      • Do not get a cat. The cat might actually make your child's asthma worse.
      • Use snap traps under appliances and sinks and where you see droppings.
      • Trim shrubs well and keep the yard free of litter.
