How Did I Get Roaches?

If you have discovered that you have a cockroach infestation in your home, you may be wondering how it got there. You may also be wondering if you could have brought them in from your place of work? What about whether or not they travel into your home on your clothes? Maybe your neighbors had an infestation and now you are worried that their cockroaches have moved on to your home? Could they have come down the chimney into your fireplace? Do all houses have cockroach problems? 

Cockroaches are one of the most common household pests, so it’s a safe bet to assume you will come across one of these sneaky critters at some point in the life of your home. And an even safer bet to assume that most people have asked themselves these very questions which are really asking: “What attracts cockroaches to my home?” Read on to find out the answers to what causes cockroaches to come into your home from the pros at Pest Control Experts. 

What Is The Cause of Cockroach Infestations?

Cockroaches, like most other insect pest species such as ants, termites or flies, are attracted to your home because it provides food, shelter and water. While you may think your home is completely clean of food or water, eliminating any possible food sources on which cockroaches might feed, you may have left behind errant crumbs on your floor or counters or even left them behind buried between the couch cushions. Cockroaches are adept scavengers who can make a meal of crumbs or spills in your trashcan. 

Most cockroaches are also on the hunt for moisture which can be easily found in standing water spots in your yard or wherever you might have a slow drip or moisture build up in your plumbing, bathrooms or kitchen. 

It can be difficult to know what the main attraction to your home is for roaches, and yet, knowing the reasons why cockroaches are in your home is vital to getting and keeping them out. A trained pest elimination specialist can easily root out your cockroach issues, figure out what is attracting cockroaches to your home and create a plan to eliminate cockroaches from your home completely.
