American Cockroach

Cockroaches are known to infest everything from homes to restaurants, and are often found on ships and planes.  They tend to follow plumbing and water pipes as well as electrical lines from one room to another.  This method is what also leads to entire apartment buildings and complexes becoming infested.  

Roaches tend to move from location to location through cabinets and cardboard boxes, and can often be found on wood more often than metal or other surfaces.  Once they find a location they feel comfortable in, they leave a pheromone in their fecal matter that attracts other cockroaches.  

In addition to proper and professional pest control and management, cleanliness and proper sanitation methods are highly recommended and can help the effectiveness of bait and other treatments.
