What Can Attract Roaches to Your Home?

Nothing will rumble the stomachs of roaches more than a home filled with food and other substances they can eat. Take a look at the following to see if your home is currently filled any of these things:

  1. Paper Products: Is your home littered with paper cups and plates? Then it may be the perfect opportunity for roaches to infiltrate. Roaches will generally tend to flock toward paper products including cardboard, paper scraps, and book bindings. Though your home may be filled with scraps of gift wrap this holiday season, it’s best to clean up quickly to keep roaches away. They may even begin eating up your favorite book!
  2. Leftover Foods: Sure, the holidays are known for starchy foods, but it’s important to store them away so roaches won’t be able to get a bite. Roaches are attracted to foods with sugar, grease, meat, and cheese. They’ll also eat any decaying food, so make sure to check your fridge food that’s past its expiration date. Even though roaches can go months without eating, they‘ll eat any food with nutritional value.
  3. Garbage/Compost: Roaches are often attracted to stronger smells, which makes your garbage one of the main sources of attraction. If you go without changing your garbage for a longer period of time, the more likely roaches will filter into your home looking for any morsel of food or grease they can muster.
