If there’s a most-detested pest among all insects, it might just be the household cockroach (aka the German cockroach). These nasty, invasive, bugs love to eat. So they’ll devour crumbs, spills, and even food straight from your pantry.
When they’re not feeding, cockroaches like to hang out in dark, moist places, including behind your oven and refrigerator, under the kitchen sink, and in the basement.
The thing about cockroaches, though, is that they’re nocturnal. So unless you’re raiding the fridge at midnight, the only signs you may see of them are the droppings they leave behind.
If you suspect you have these pests in your home, don’t panic. Follow these simple steps to kill cockroaches. (Be sure to always follow label directions!)
