Where Do Cockroaches Like to Hide in New Westminster?

Did you know cockroaches hide 75-90% of the time? It’s true. Ask anyone who has ever had a cockroach problem—they are masters at hide-and-go-seek. These creepy crawlers are so good at this game, in fact, that it could take months before you spot even just one of them. If you are worried that you might have a cockroach infestation, there are several areas you can check to see if these little pests have invaded your New Westminster home. Learn how to search in your home or office for cockroaches New Westminster.

The Kitchen

This is kind of a no-brainer, but the most common area to track down cockroaches is in the kitchen. This highly lucrative location provides tons of easy access to food and water, making it the perfect place for these critters to set up camp.
Oftentimes, you will be able to find cockroaches hiding in sinks and pipes. Inside cabinets or pantries are other hideouts that are worth checking out. Also, don’t forget to take a look underneath and behind your refrigerator, stove and dishwasher—these nasty insects just love food-storing appliances, especially when there is grease involved!

Stacks of Paper

Have mounds of paper piled up in your New Westminster home? If yes, then you might be creating an all-you-can-eat buffet for cockroaches. Believe it or not, these brown and black, six-legged crawlers gobble up all kinds of paper, from newspapers and mail to cardboard boxes and books. If you’re not keen on cockroaches moving into that paper restaurant you’ve inadvertently constructed, it is probably a good idea to keep these items off the floor and stacked in tight bundles.

The Ceiling

Straight out of a horror movie, these creepy-crawlies also like to skulk along with your ceilings. Imagine walking into your living room only to feel a cockroach drop onto your head from above. We’re sorry, we don’t mean to scare you (but we couldn’t resist). The truth is cockroaches really do hide on your ceilings, but usually in dark rooms that aren’t being used. So, if you have rooms in your house that don’t get much traffic, take a moment to check out the ceilings (don’t forget to bring an umbrella).

The Bathroom

Bathrooms are another common refuge for cockroaches, probably because of the easy access to water (not to mention pipes to hide in). Sure, there is no “food” in there, but cockroaches will eat just about anything, including grooming products, tissue, and even hair.

A cockroach infestation is no laughing matter. They are not only creepy but can also spread harmful diseases to you and the ones you care about. The safest and most effective way to deal with a serious roach problem is to hire a professional. A qualified pest control technician will be able to find these nasty critters and remove them from your home as quickly as possible.
