3 reasons why there are lots of cockroaches in your house

Nobody ever likes having lots of cockroaches at home. Apart from being disgusting, cockroaches are insects that are often considered dirty pests because they carry a number of serious diseases that have the potential to threaten human health.

Before deciding to eradicate cockroaches from your house, know the following 3 reasons why there are lots of cockroaches in your house:

  1. Food scraps – Cockroaches are not picky when it comes to finding food as they eat almost everything they find. Cleaning the sink from leftover food, washing eating and cooking utensils after using them and sweeping the floor from crumbs lying on the floor are the best ways to eliminate cockroaches' favorite food in your house.

  2. Moisture – Cockroaches are attracted to moisture which they can often find from leaking sink pipes or standing water on the floor or sink. This is why types of cockroaches such as American Cockroaches and German Cockroaches are often found in the kitchen or bathroom area compared to other rooms in your house.

  3. Warmth – Almost all types of cockroaches that enter your home seek warmer places inside the house, with a preference for nesting in places that are close to access to food and moisture, such as kitchen areas and garages.
