CockroachA cockroach infestation does not mean you have a dirty home. Cockroaches are skilled sneaky hitchhikers, they will use luggage, briefcases, pot plants, parcels and post items to enter your home. They will also travel through open doorways and pipes to come inside. Once inside they will find a well-hidden hard to reach place to make home.

Although certain conditions will make your home more favourable and can cause rapid breeding once they have entered your home if they like their new surroundings.

Cockroaches are fantastic at hiding. Knowing where they prefer to find shelter and where they seek out food will help you in preventing them from moving in.

Cockroaches prefer to live in the smallest of cavities, behind fridges and other dark places preferring to come out at night.
