Roaches are everywhere. They are among the most common pests across the world, thanks to their resilience and ability to make their home in nearly any environment.

You may not realize you have a cockroach problem at first because they choose to live in dark, secluded areas and they are able to enter your home by squeezing in through tight spaces.
