What attracts cockroaches into your house?

Similarly to humans, cockroaches love to eat. Whether we’re talking about food sitting inside of a trash can, leftover dirty dishes, or food dropped on the floor, cockroaches will happily pick at any piece of food they’re able to. It is recommended to ensure your kitchen and dining room area are regularly cleaned in order to avoid cockroach infestation. Sweeping and polishing your floors are also imperative when it comes to cockroach control. Along with that, keep in mind that cockroaches love moisture. That said, remain vigilant of leaky water pipes, perhaps beneath your kitchen or bathroom sinks as well as bathmats or floormats that have a tendency to remain moist for hours after use.

Because these pests are known to inhabit sewer drains, bathroom areas, and dumpsters, they’ve got a high likelihood to pick up and transport pathogens and bacteria that are harmful to humans. It is safe to say that if you come in contact with a cockroach, ensure to wash your hands or any body part that came in contact with the pest. As far as food is concerned, it is recommended to never eat any piece of food that has been in or around these pests, as airborne bacteria can seamlessly spread leaving you and your loved ones at risk of sickness and contamination.

Do cockroaches like heat or cold?

Typically speaking, cockroaches do not like the cold, as they are cold-blooded arthropods (arthropods are unable to survive in extremely hot or extremely cold climates and must reside in fair-weathered temperatures of 55-70 degrees Fahrenheit with little-to-no humidity). In the beautiful state of North Carolina, it is safe to say that cold weather is rare and warm, humid weather is most prevalent for roughly 9 months out of the year. That said, do not expect the humid, sunny weather to deter cockroaches from intruding on your home or commercial business property, as they’re extremely capable of intruding during the night when the temperature cools down and when you’re least expecting them.

Do cockroaches die in the winter?

Raliegh Cockroach Extermination Whether we’re talking about the American Cockroach, German Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, or the Brown-Banded Cockroach, it is safe to say that these pests generally cann0t survive in environments with temperatures below 15 degrees Fahrenheit. That said, it is very common for cockroaches to find a way into your home or business establishment in order to avoid unlivable weather conditions. Because they need water to survive (to avoid dehydration), these pests are notorious for living through winter by inhabiting floor drains, sewers, crawl spaces, and, most commonly, basements.
