What Attracts Cockroaches?

  • Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal insects, which is why they scatter and scuttle toward dark corners when you turn on a light. They prefer dark, moist environments for their homes, especially ones that provide easy nourishment and accessible, warm hiding places.
  • Cockroaches can survive on a lot of different materials. They eat food, garbage, wallpaper paste, paper, bookbinding materials, and other organic materials. So, if you have a stack of newspapers in the garage that’s been exposed to moisture, you’ve created the perfect roach hideout.
  • Roaches particularly prefer moist environments, so if you have sweating pipes or places in your basement with standing water, you need to clean them up and dry them out if you want to get rid of cockroaches and keep them away.
  • Roaches also gravitate toward small nooks and crannies. They’ll hide under the sink, in the walls, and within cracks in the floor, too. If you want to make sure that roaches don’t get into your home, check and plug up holes in the walls and foundation of your home that could allow roaches in from outside.
