Where do cockroaches nest in your house?

Question: Where do cockroaches nest in your house?

Answer: Cockroaches “nest” in parts of the house that provide food, moisture and protection. These conditions are often found in kitchens, food storage cabinets, basements, bathrooms, dark areas of the home, around plumbing leaks, in floor drains, near heat-producing appliances, near electric motors, in wall voids and places around the house where household clutter is allowed to accumulate.
