Cockroaches rest during daylight hours in dark, warm, secure locations in your home, such as, in wall cavities, the subfloor, roof void, cracks and crevices in the kitchen and bathroom and electrical appliances.

Cockroaches eat a large variety of foods, unfortunately due to the cockroaches dirty lifestyle it is believed that they spread diseases to humans. If left unchecked a cockroach infestation can rapidly expand it’s numbers in a few weeks or months to become major risk to health and safety.
