How Did I Get Roaches?
Cockroaches can enter your home in many ways, from the outside through cracks and crevices, vents, sewer and drain pipes, and even simply through your door or windows when open. They may also be brought in with your grocery items. In apartments, they can easily travel from unit to unit through plumbing or vents. Roaches need food, water, and warmth, and nesting sites for breeding which makes your home an ideal year-round breeding ground. Roaches will invade even clean homes as long as there is food, water, and warmth, and nesting sites and they reproduce quickly. Cockroaches like dark, warm, moist areas and often stay near drains or leaky pipes.
Why Is It So Difficult To Get Rid Of Roaches?
Roaches are evasive. They typically are nocturnal, if you've seen one, there are probably many more you have not seen. If you see cockroaches in the daytime it could mean they were likely forced out by overcrowding due to severe infestation. In order to eradicate roaches, you need to find all their hiding and nesting places. Something the untrained person is unlikely to be able to do. Roach eggs are naturally protected from many over-the-counter insecticides. Without special chemicals and know-how, it is extremely difficult to remove all roaches. It is best to hire a professional, reputable, exterminator.
