Any food that is easily accessible (such as dog or cat food) will need to be stored in secure plastic containers away from where the infestation is located. If possible, shutting off the water supply to that area will also help to keep them away. When the exterminator discovers where the pests are entering your home from, you will need to seal off any cracks in your cabinets or baseboards around those areas.
