Cockroaches tend to prefer warm, humid environments. They are a frequent problem in tropical and subtropical areas places like Florida where they are also known as “palmetto bugs.”
However brownbanded and German cockroaches are also highly common and are found in homes and apartments all throughout the US.
Cockroaches are scavengers that will consume almost anything, but they prefer meat, grease, starches and sweets. The pest will also eat dead skin flakes and glue from book bindings.
Depending on the species, female cockroaches can produce up to 60 eggs.
As a nocturnal insect, cockroaches spend daylight hours in dark sheltered cracks and crevices behind or inside the dark areas of appliances like refrigerators and dishwashers, under cabinets or inside walls, boiler rooms and basements.
The darker and tinier the space, the better in a cockroach’s perspective.
Spotting two or more during the day is a sign of a severe cockroach infestation.
