Cockroach Facts, Identification & Prevention
German cockroaches are the most common roaches you will have to contend with. They are generally half an inch in size and have distinct dark stripes running down their backs. Additionally, they love to be near water so that you may find them near the sink in the bathroom or kitchen. You can try to cut them off from their food supply by not leaving crumbs around the house. Otherwise, you will require professional assistance to eliminate them. While roaches can make their way into any home, you can do your part in preventing them access to your home by regularly cleaning, sealing any cracks, and keeping the space as cool as you can.
