Why Are They In My House?
Cockroaches are attracted by food, warmth, shelter, and moisture. They can be introduced into a home in bags, boxes, or luggage from just about anywhere. 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.

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.
What Does It Take To Get Rid Of Cockroaches?
Cockroaches are tough to exterminate once they have infected an area. Over-the-counter pesticides may kill the individuals you see, but they do nothing about the multitudes of bugs hiding in your home that you cannot see. The only sure way of getting rid of the cockroaches in your home or business is to call a professional New York pest control company. Parkway Pest Services can help you rid your home of any of the common cockroaches in New York.
