Question: What attracts cockroaches in your home?
Answer: Cockroaches are attracted by their need for food, moisture and a temperature-friendly environment that provides protective shelter sites in which to live and proliferate.
Some of the specific situations attracting cockroaches are:
Openings that lead inside
Cracks and crevices in dark areas of the home
Food crumbs, spillage or waste
Cockroaches don’t need much moisture to survive, but they are commonly found in damp areas such as around or near water leaks or inside drains.
