Cockroaches can be found even in business and commercial spaces. They are mainly attracted to humid and warm environs and can squeeze in even the tiniest of spaces. Continue to read ahead if you would want to know more about the reasons that make your house a hotspot for cockroaches: 

  • Excess moisture and standing water 

Cockroaches are always on the lookout for water and moisture so if there is standing water in your yard, it automatically becomes a hotbed for cockroaches. Puddles, broken drainages in your backyard where they get a fair share of filth, dirt and debris also become a hotspot for cockroaches. 

  • Leaving dirty dishes in the sink 

Leaving dirty dishes in the sink after having your meals is certainly a bad practice. They can even feed leftovers from the plates. Hence leaving dirty dishes in the sink overnight is an invitation for the cockroaches to come and have a party! Once cockroaches see some source of food, they will keep coming there again and again. 

  • Open dustbins and trash cans 

Cockroaches can feed on non-edible items such as paper, cardboard, pencil shavings, and garbage present in the dustbins and trash cans. Hence, even if you have cleared the garbage out of your home and kept it in the trash can, it is of no use if the dustbins are open and not sealed properly. Cockroaches will enter the open bins and create more and more colonies of their kind.  

Opting for cockroach pest control Melbourne on a regular basis for preventing cockroaches from making colonies in various parts of your home. 

  • Open food on the counter or dining table 

Cockroaches can find and eat the minutest items of food crumbs that may fall down while eating. They can also find food crumbs that get stuck in the crevices or in the areas between the dining table and chairs. Cockroaches can also happily feed on the food spilled by your pets while eating from their bowls. Hence, it is important to clean up the place pets eat their meals on. 

The electrical appliances that one uses for cooking such as the oven, the grinder and the toaster can also be frequented by the cockroaches if there are food crumbs left inside after cooking. Hence it is important to clean up these appliances after you are done using them.
