As temperatures have dropped across the Washing ton, D.C. region this winter, My Pest Pros has seen an increase in calls from homeowners and tenants with cockroaches in their homes or apartments. These homes are not necessarily dirty or unsanitary. Roaches are attracted to your home's warmth, dark spaces and moisture. While it's true that unsanitary conditions can attract roaches, they are likely seeking a safe and comfortable place to breed.

About Roaches

Cockroaches can squeeze through small cracks, as small as 0.15 centimeters, in walls, foundations, around drain pipes as well as windows, electrical or other wires. Poorly sealed doors and other entry points are also ways they can get inside. You may also unknowingly carry the in with the mail, newspapers, boxes, grocery bags and other packaging. Construction in a neighbor's home or business can also drive them towards your home or business.

Because roaches prefer dark, warm and quiet places, they can often be found under kitchen or bathroom sinks, in crawl spaces, under or behind appliances or inside cabinets. You may see roaches when the population has grown to an infestation or one or two is accidentally exposed and is scrambling for a safe hiding place.
