How do roaches get in your house?
Roaches are scavengers. They are constantly on the hunt for a warm, moist place to reside. Contrary to popular belief, roaches don’t just look for dirty rooms to live. They are mainly concerned with seeking out a safe environment… leftover food on the counter is just an added bonus along the way. Often times if you live near a creek or other body of water, roaches are likely to be prevalent around your home. People also generally see an increased amount of roaches when it rains. The reason for this is that roaches typically travel and reside under ground, so when water level rise they are forced to the top and that often means they are forced into your home.
Why do roaches flip over when they die?
You’ve probably noticed that every time a dead roach is found around your home, it is literally belly up. It is very common to find roaches on their back, having not been able to flip over and eventually died. However, this is actually only common in your house. In nature, roaches are much more likely to die on their stomachs or in the stomach of a predator. When roaches accidentally flip over in your house, it’s usually on a flat surface. Without twigs, roots, uneven ground or anything to help the roach flip over, it is hopeless and will remain on its back until it is flipped over or dies.
What do roaches eat?
Cockroaches eat just about anything that is available for them. Roaches that live in nature will feed on that leaves, grass and wood that they find around them. Roaches that live in the sewer will feed on sewage and roaches that find their way into your house will feed on the food you leave out. They are also able to live for up to a week with no water.
