Signs of Cockraoch Infestation
The cockroaches will come out at night when you are asleep they will seek out dark places to hide during the day and particularly like to be almost "coccooned" when they are resting. In other words they like to have all surfaces of their body touching something. This makes them seek out very, very small cracks and crevices where they can hunker down undisturbed for their daytime sleep.
Some of the more popular home and commercial methods of cockroach control are baits, powder dusts, sprays, and traps. The cleverly marketed roach motel is still regularly stocked on the shelves in grocery, hardware, drug, and convenience stores. Another type of bait is the pheromone trap, which attracts roaches with odor. Although these methods may be successful with adult cockroaches, they do not kill the egg capsules that have already been produced. To accomplish this there are liquid sprays which inhibit the sexual growth of immature insects and prevent them from reproducing. The most effective method of cockroach control is a multiple-strategy attack employed frequently.
