What Cockroaches Are Attracted To

Serving Illinois, Indiana and Missouri

What are cockroaches are attracted to - Anderson Pest Solutions in Illinois Indiana Missouri and MichiganMost cockroaches hibernate during the cold months and will spend their time outdoors, often in wood piles near your home, and are then brought inside with the firewood. If you think you’re off the hook because you don’t have a fireplace, the bad news is some roaches will inevitably seek shelter in your cozy home anyway.

A roach can survive under unbelievably harsh conditions; not even the frigid winter climate can keep these pests down. In addition to the warm temperature inside, your house is full of tasty food to sustain the local roach population all winter long. Cockroaches may contaminate your family’s food supply with E.coli and salmonella, reinforcing the need for professional cockroach control.

Preventing Cockroach Infestations

Roaches don’t have to be part of your household, no matter what the weather brings. Keep them and other pests at bay with these time-tested preventive measures:

  • Refrigerate unsealed food.
  • Store food in airtight containers.
  • Avoid leaving pet food out overnight.
  • Completely seal trash or take it out nightly.
  • Wash or put unwashed dishes in the dishwasher.
  • Wipe or sweep away spills and crumbs immediately.
  • Keep your oven, microwave, and counters debris-free.
  • Seal all cracks and gaps around pipes and in your home’s exterior.

No plan is foolproof. If you find yourself in the midst of a cockroach invasion, contact your local pest control professionals right away.
