Our Methods Center On: What Attracts Cockroaches? | Roaches in NYC Vs. Water Bug NYC
Our approach to a cockroach problem is a hands-on analysis of the situation: we immediately determine how bad the problem is, identify the type, if you have roaches in NYC or a problem of the water bug NYC specie, and finally to remember what attracts cockroaches so we can prevent their returning.
When an exterminator from our team arrives in your NYC home or your NYC building, we assess the area by sight.
Prep work needed includes removing all food and dishes from kitchen cabinets, as this is one of a cockroaches’ main nesting grounds, because of the sources of food.
This preparation allows us to go to the heart of the roach problem and see how much damage and evidence of activity is there.
Yes, there may be visible roaches in the walls, on the counters or floors, but seeing other signs that our trained technicians know to look for can allow for a proper assessment of how aggressively to treat the problem and where to best go about cockroach control.
What attracts cockroaches?
This is the big question fundamental to our expert approach to roach NYC treatment, not just in the short term, but to prevent their returning over the long turn.
Roaches are attracted to food, water, and shelter, like people.
And this is why kitchen cabinets built around a kitchen sink and plumbing offer an ideal home base for the American cockroach and the many other species as well.
By eliminating access to the these three attractives, you can eliminate roaches in NYC, regardless of the building-type.
Carefully removing all crumbs and cleaning all surfaces that might have had food is essential to our process throughout the residence.
By taking all items out of the kitchen cabinets we can see any roach feces or residue that might be stuck to walls or corners of cabinetry indicating a major roach infestation NYC.
When a major infestation occurs the roaches are in the walls themselves and it can take weeks or even months and teams of trained technicians to safely use the right amount of products in the right places to kill off all the existing life cycles of the water bug NYC or the American cockroach that is haunting the place.
Leaking pipes can aid roaches in NYC, especially ones attached to a kitchen’s plumbing.
By cleaning and treating the ‘shelter’ and eliminating the food and water sources carefully we can prevent future newcoming roaches.

German roaches are usually about half an inch long while American roaches NYC can be up to two inches long, and they are non-aggressive like the water bug NYC is.
Roaches in NYC are scavengers and typically not aggressive.
Our NYC exterminator will go in and attack the heart of the cockroach problem, which is almost always centered around the kitchens in a building of any type or use.
We work our way out from there so that every possible outlet for the roach is spied out and a plan is made to get rid of eggs, families, and prevent future residencies of the coackroach.
Again it comes down to ‘what attracts cockroaches?”
If we take away the food, water and cozy shelter than once the current infestation is eliminated, we can keep away these pesky bugs.
So, What Exactly Is A Cockroach?
Cockroaches are actually a part of the termite family and there are thousands of different species. They are an ancient species of insect and they have been around for many, many years. You can usually find them around human habitats as they thrive on our food and shelter.
Roaches are a social insect, so where there is one there are usually many more. Cockroaches are notoriously hard to get rid of. They can survive extreme cold, heat, water, and can go for weeks without food. While it is a myth that they could survive a nuclear war, it does take a lot to get rid of them.
Roaches can range in size from a thumbnail to the length of your thumb and they can also fly. Most species do not like the light, it hurts their eyes, and will be most active at night time or in darker areas of your home.
Why You Need A Professional Cockroach Exterminator
Besides being very difficult to get rid of, cockroaches come with a host of other problems. Even if you only see one or two roaches out and about, there are likely many more hidden in the structure of your home because they are social insects. They also reproduce very quickly and soon you could have a major infestation.
Since they build their nests in the walls and floors of your home, they could very easily damage the structural integrity of your house. This could lead to dangerous problems like collapsed walls or floors. Cockroaches can also carry pathogens on their bodies that can make you and your family sick. They also produce a protein, tropomyosin, that can trigger allergic reactions in humans and aggravate those with asthma.
Not only do they carry the risk of disease and house damage, they can have a bad odor and produce waste that will dirty your living area. Cockroaches are a pest that you don’t want to deal with on your own.
