Cockroaches invade for a simple reason: they want something from your house.
You already know that outdoor roaches often come in looking for warmer shelter.
In fact, that’s one of 3 primary reasons for cockroaches to enter homes: food, moisture and shelter.
Food Fit for a Roach
A cockroach’s hunger is never satisfied and its sense of smell is finely tuned to detect anything edible. And what they consider edible truly stretches the definition of food.
Roaches will feed on just about anything organic, including paper, glue, pet waste and garbage. They’ll even eat pet hair that’s collected under furniture and grime stuck in the garbage disposal.
Once they’ve found all those crumbs and other tasty morsels, they’re going to stick around. So what causes roaches in a clean house?
Moisture and Humidity
Most cockroaches are very sensitive to dehydration and need water to survive.
That’s why they live in humid places and why you’ll often find them under the kitchen sink or in the bathroom. American roaches, especially, love damp locations, like sewers and gutters. Indoors, Oriental roaches often get caught in bathtubs and toilet bowls.
Just a few drops of water from a leaky pipe, dripping faucet or wet shower mat are enough. If there’s a room in your house that traps humidity, that’s where roaches will go to breed.
Shelter: Safe and Out of Sight
Some Cockroaches are Attracted to Lights
While many species of cockroaches spend their days hiding in the dark, a few flying roaches—like smokybrowns and wood roaches—are strongly attracted to lights. Neglect a torn window screen or forget about the gap under your old front door and roaches can crawl—or fly—right in.
