Roaches In A Clean Home
In some cases, families who keep clean homes are plagued with roach infestations.It is a common misconception that roaches are only attracted to unclean spaces. Some factors that may increase the risk of roaches in your clean home include:
Moisture: If you have potted plants that you water frequently, live in a humid climate, experience frequent rainfall where you live, or are located near a natural water source, roaches will be more drawn to your space. They love these environments and seek shelter and food indoors.
Landscaping: If you live somewhere with woods, overgrown grass, or many plants close to your home, you may be at a higher risk for roaches in your home. At the first sign of an issue contact Armor Pest Control in Houston!
