For these reasons and more, it can be hard to know when you have an infestation. However, seeing even one roach is an indicator that there are likely many more nearby. It’s important to learn how to manage cockroaches by learning what attracts them to your property in the first place.
By knowing how to prevent cockroaches, you can save yourself from the gross discovery of an infestation!
