What Attracts Cockroaches into Your House?

Cockroaches love to eat!  Whether it’s leftover food inside a trash can, scraps left on dirty dishes, or food dropped on the floor, cockroaches will savage every last bite no matter the circumstances. With daily sanitation practices, homeowners can reduce their risk of dealing with an unsightly cockroach infestation. Also, it’s important to pay special attention to your kitchen and the dining area since tiny food particles can be leftover from cooking and eating meals. 

Sweeping and washing floors are also key when it comes to cockroach control. Additionally, water leaks and uncontrolled moisture can attract cockroaches inside your home as well. That being said, you should keep an eye on any dripping pipes and spaces under sinks where water exposure is likely to occur. 

Will Cockroaches Harm My Health?

Known for inhabiting sewer drains, bathroom areas, and dumpsters, most cockroaches carry pathogens and bacteria that can cause disease in humans. In regards to your food, it’s never a good idea to eat any food that’s come into contact with these pests, or should you prepare meals on surfaces thought to be contaminated.  

What is the Lifespan of a Roach?

The lifespan of cockroaches can vary and are often determined by their living conditions including hot or cold temperature exposure and access to food. That being said, cockroaches can rapidly reproduce and lay eggs all-around your property.

Do Cockroaches Prefer Light or Darkness?

Cockroaches usually destain light, but many species of cockroaches, such as Oriental and German, have been known to prefer light and gravitate towards window panes, computer screens, and even desk lamps.
