Q: I have been cleaning and seems that every time I clean the kitchen there’s more and more cockroaches. The owner from my apartment said it may be the refrigerator that is causing heat to attract more roaches. Is this true?
A: It sounds like you may be dealing with a German Roach infestation. German roaches are found in apartment communities often and usually require multiple treatments, as well as, some sanitation to eliminate them. Roaches are attracted to water, food, shelter, and when it’s cold…heat. It is common to find a concentration of roaches in and around the appliances. They are attracted to places like the refrigerator but that is not the cause of the infestation. We strongly recommend a pest service or inspection to identify the issue. Call your pest control management company to come out and properly identify the source of the infestation. Together, you and Northwest Exterminating can come up with the right solution for your home.
