Cockroaches are among the most common insect pests found inside buildings.

They can contaminate food, kitchen utensils, and other items as they move feely from filth to food thereby carrying microorganisms that can cause food poisoning and other illnesses.

They can enter buildings through produce boxes, grocery bags, cracks and openings around doors and windows.

Cockroaches are more active at night as they generally remain hidden in dark secluded places during the day.
