Why am I still seeing roaches after extermination?

It's common to see roaches after an extermination. Do not spray or use a bug bomb in the area! After an extermination you can expect to see roaches for a few weeks, even in the daytime, which you may not have seen before. This is because the treatment confuses the roaches, and their normal habits are disrupted.

What do roaches hate?

Cucumber. It is thought that cockroaches also hate the smell of cucumbers. One popular DIY method is to place cucumber slices or peels overnight near cockroach hotspots such as sinks, kitchen counters, and cabinets. Unfortunately, cockroaches don't really mind the smell of cucumber.

Where do roaches hide during the day?

They prefer to live and feed in the dark, so a cockroach seen during the day is a possible sign of infestation. Cockroaches tend to prefer dark, moist places to hide and breed and can be found behind refrigerators, sinks and stoves, as well as under floor drains and inside of motors and major appliances.

Will I see more roaches after exterminator?

For a couple of weeks after the treatment, it's perfectly normal to see a few additional roaches. Despite how rampant the treatment was, some roaches will survive, and some of them will be carrying eggs. So you might still see a few filthy critters.

Why do I have roaches in my clean house?

When thinking about what causes roaches in a clean house, you probably first land on the areas that are within plain sight, such as kitchen counters, dining room floors and so forth. That means they'll creep in through cracks in the exterior of your home, dryer vents and even gaps in between your wall and floor.
