3 Reasons There Are Cockroaches in Your Apartment

Despite how hard you might try to keep them away, cockroaches are a very common household pest. Cockroaches hide in wall crevices and under furniture and appear when you least expect it, especially if you live in a warm climate. There are several reasons why cockroaches are attracted to your apartment and keep on coming back. Let’s take a look. 


Cockroaches are very attracted to moisture, so even if your apartment is sparkling clean you may continue to find cockroaches simply because of the moisture in your home. 

Unfortunately, the moisture in your home might be out of your control depending on where you live. Some buildings are older and cannot withstand water as they used to, and some apartment complex maintenance teams are lacking. 

If your apartment complex has constant cockroach problems, it might be time to move.


Along with moisture, cockroaches are very attracted to food. If you leave food debris out, cockroaches will continue to keep coming to your apartment. 

If you are experiencing a constant cockroach problem, make sure you clean up frequently and don’t leave food out. 

Making these small changes can help stop cockroaches from making a home in your apartment. Once they realize there is no food left for them, they will leave and go elsewhere. 


Cockroaches typically like living in hotter climates. If you live in Florida or Arizona, you have probably seen cockroaches in your home from time to time. 

This is just something that comes with living in a warm climate and is difficult to control. Cockroaches love the heat and will always live in warm environments. 

If you are trying to stop a cockroach problem, you should make sure you close your windows and doors. In many cases, cockroaches will crawl on your screen door and will find a way inside your apartment.
