Food Is The #1 Attractor:

The number one attractant for roaches is food. But you’d be surprised how many different things a roach considers food. Human food, pet food, cardboard, old books, hair, and even decaying matter could suffice as a completely acceptable meal for a roach. They are the polar opposite of picky eaters and are known for eating virtually anything available to them. But their absolute favorite dishes would be of the organic food variety and include things like sweets, meats, and starches, so be sure to keep your food storage items tightly sealed. If you come across a roach in one of your food items, dispose of the food immediately. Roaches are known for causing allergic reactions in people suffering from asthma, as well as for carrying diseases such as dysentery, cholera, and typhoid fever, among others.

Where Roaches Hide:

If you’re struggling with a roach problem, one of the first things you’ll want to do is tape off any gaps between piping and walls to keep these areas dry and less inviting. For more extreme infestations, you may want to consider a better insulating method that kills off pests that have entered the structure of your home.
