They may also come inside your house from outdoors while foraging for food. Cockroaches are nocturnal insects; some common places to find them are under the kitchen sink and the refrigerator.

Are Cockroaches Dangerous?

Cockroaches are known to spread many different diseases and can cause serious health issues. They pick up any bacteria and pathogens while walking through infected areas and their droppings also contain bacteria. They can spread salmonella, cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and can cause asthma.
