Cockroach Entry Points For Homes In Phoenix

Cockroaches range from half an inch to two inches in size. They are also incredibly flat and can make themselves even flatter when squeezing through small spaces. As a result, they can fit through spaces the height of two stacked United States pennies.

Due to their small size and ability to fit into even smaller spaces, they can enter your home in a variety of ways:

  • Window frame gaps 
  • Drains
  • Foundation cracks
  • Door frame cracks
  • Door cracks
  • Electrical wiring gaps
  • Brick and mortar holes
  • Gaps in baseboards
  • Vents
  • Riding along on personal effects brought into the house

The access points for cockroaches to enter your home are vast, as they do not require much space. Keep your home cockroach-free with Uni-Tech Pest Control.

What Is Attracting Cockroaches To My Home

Cockroaches search for a few primary things, food, water, and shelter. Due to their search for water, they often come to damp areas. As a result, leaky pipes, plumbing, and humidity attract cockroaches into the home. As one can imagine, food is high on the priority list for cockroaches. Leftover food, crumbs, and even grimy surfaces attract these unwanted pests. Lastly, cockroaches are constantly on the lookout for shelter. Believe it or not, clutter is a cockroach's best friend. They can hide in piles of boxes, newspapers, and clothing.

Keeping your home free of clutter, dry, and clean are valuable ways to reduce the odds of incubating a cockroach infestation.
