How did I get roaches?

Cockroaches have many entry points into your home. Cockroaches may also be brought in with you grocery items. They can easily travel between units by using the plumbing or vents in apartments. Roaches need warmth and water to survive, as well as nesting places for breeding. This makes your home a perfect year-round breeding area. Roaches can infiltrate homes even if they are well-maintained. Cockroaches enjoy dark, warm, moist environments and will often be found close to pipes or drains.

Why is it so difficult to get rid of roaches?

Roaches are often evasive. They are usually nocturnal. There are likely many more than you see. If you find cockroaches at night, it may be because they have been forced from their homes by excessive infestation. To eradicate roaches you will need to locate all their hiding spots and nesting places. This is something the untrained individual will likely not be able to do. Roach eggs are naturally resistant to many types insecticides. It is difficult for roaches to be eradicated without the use of special chemicals and technical know-how. It is best that you hire a professional exterminator.

  1. Wipe up spills and messes immediately.
  2. Wash dishes after using them. Do not wait! Put them away as soon as they’re dry.
  3. Empty out cabinets and clean them.
  4. Remove everything from below the sink and clean it out and dry it.
  5. Clean out from under all appliances, especially the refrigerator which is a favorite hiding spot.
  6. Clean not only the interior but also the exterior of garbage cans.

Wet-and-dry vacuums are used to capture dirt, small objects and any cockroaches hiding throughout your home. Finally, they seal the openings with mesh and caulk to keep bugs away. Finally, an exterminator will check storage areas as well as bedrooms, inspecting every crevice and crack.

Nests can often be found behind refrigerators, kitchen cabinets, crawl spaces or in corners. A nest can be identified by mounds with cast skins, egg case, dark spots or marks, as well as live or dead cockroaches. Egg cases can be found on the underside of your furniture as well.

Mixing boric acid and equal amounts of powdered sugar to make a lure is a popular DIY technique. If you are unable to use a of natural treatment, you can still use roachtraps, roach sprays, insect traps and bait stations for home control. This will either repel or kill the cockroaches.

It will kill any roach that is sprayed by it. Fogging systems work well at killing roaches upon contact but can push them into safer hiding places. Fogging and bombing roaches can create a problem that actually makes the problem worse rather than better and can make the infestation for a while.

It’s basically cockroach poop. Cockroaches leave behind dark, dry, black pepper-like feces. But they also leave behind liquid fecal marks, especially in areas where many of them congregate.

Cockroaches only come out at night and avoid light. The light doesn’t hurt them, however, they seem to know they can’t hide from predators or avoid them if they are in plain sight. Although they will avoid light, leaving a light on or even a nightlight all night long will not drive them away.

A cockroach’s average life span is around twenty to thirty week as long as they have easy access to food or water. The egg stage, which is equally important for males as females, is the first stage in cockroach life. These are egg capsules, which are where eggs are produced.
