Home Improvement

Living in an urban area has plenty of great things to offer to anyone. But homeowners here have to take care of various issues in order to ensure that they protect their home and their property. One example is in pest control, and finding quality pest control is a must for all homeowners.

While things like termites and ants are often the main focus for pest control, another issue that needs to be looked at is that of cockroaches.

The Cockroach

Cockroaches are a pest that often lives near garbage, sewers, and water. While they don't bite or sting, they do contact germs which can be unsanitary. In fact, cockroaches have been linked to the transmission of diseases and it's important that you focus on eliminating them if they are a problem in your home. Making matters worse, one single cockroach is often a sign that there are more in the home. An infestation can be difficult to eliminate.

6 Common Cockroach Hiding Places

If you're unsure of just where these creatures may be found, there are several spots you'll want to take a closer look at. Here are 6 of the most common cockroach hiding places in your home.

Cabinets 

Cockroaches can easily sneak into cupboards and cabinets, often eating the spilled food bits that are present within.

Electronics 

It's fairly common to snack while using your electronic devices. But those crumbs that fall off your snacks can create a cockroach problem. And some roaches are small enough to actually crawl into tiny devices and cracks. You could literally have roaches inside your computer!

Appliances

From the microwave to the toaster oven to underneath the fridge, roaches love to hide behind and underneath appliances. These spots are warm and have plenty of crumbs and spills for the insects to feast on.

Furniture

Another great hiding spot for roaches is in and around furniture. Crumbs spilled into the couch cushions don't vanish - they can become a feast for roaches. Vacuuming your upholstery can help.

Pipes

Plumbing and HVAC pipes can easily let roaches hideout and move in and out of the home. They have plenty of moisture and are in dark places, making them a mecca for cockroaches. Sealing cracks and holes can help, as can stopping any potential leaks.

Any Nook and Cranny

Anywhere in your home that has a crack, a crevice, or a dark spot, either is enough to house roaches. Maybe behind trim or a bookcase, or maybe in the corner behind the potted plant. Eliminating clutter and debris could help reduce this issue, but roaches are resilient.

Eliminating The Problem

It's not always easy to eradicate roaches. Knowing where they hide and working to eliminate those trouble spots can be the first step, but if you really want to ensure your home is protected from roaches you'll need help. Contact a local pest control company to ensure cockroaches don't take over.

We hired Habitat Pest Control when we had an infestation of fleas. They came, prescribed a routine for us and have followed through. They are fair, courteous, knowledgeable and on time! They are definitely our preferred company.

I have them spray on 3 of our friends and familes' houses regularly for over 3 years. Great service, right away you start seeing less pests and insects in the house. By couple days later you would see none. Excellent customer service on top of their game. I would recommend to anyone.
