Cockroaches are often associated with unclean homes. They’re known for occupying spots such as bathroom drains, kitchen drains and garbage bins. Though cockroaches thrive in filthy spaces, they can be found in homes that are perfectly clean as well. If you are unfortunate enough to come in contact with the pests, you may end up bringing them home with you.
Here are some common ways cockroaches get into your home:
- In bags from the grocery stores
- In briefcases, backpacks, purses or luggage
- In second hand furniture and clothing
- From nearby apartments or homes
Why Did Cockroaches Choose Your Home?
Even if you keep your home spotless, cockroaches may still be able to thrive in your space. Cockroaches need three things for survival: food, water and warmth. Unfortunately, your home probably offers everything they need to survive. Pet food, food left on counters or even food residue in your recycle bin can be all it takes to provide a food source.
Cockroaches are nocturnal, so some homeowners do not even realize they have a problem until it starts to get out of control. Cockroach infestations multiply rapidly, so what starts out as a small problem quickly grows into a much larger issue.
