There are two things cockroaches love more than bacteria, and that is moisture and heat. On a hot summer day in Jersey, roaches thrive. You may even see one take flight. If you do, you should know that you're looking at one happy cockroach. Roaches that have the ability to fly rarely do so. It takes a lot of energy. The sighting of a flying cockroach is an indication that the temperature and humidity are ideal. But, surprisingly, it isn't the climate that cockroaches love most about New Jersey. It's the urban sprawl. Roaches love living with humans. And that's what makes them a year-round pest problem. Here's what you need to know about cockroaches in every season.


The height of cockroach season is the hot summer months. This is when you're most likely to have cockroaches enter your yard.


When it starts to get cold, cockroaches start looking for a place to hide from the cold. For this reason, our fall prevention tips will focus on exclusion.


Do you know that you can get a cockroach infestation in the dead of winter? Here are some ways it could happen.


In spring, all the bugs in New Jersey come back out to play, including cockroaches. It is also the wettest time of year. Since roaches are fond of wetness, these tips will focus on how to keep things dry.

How Year-Round Pest Control Fits Into The Picture

If you apply the tips above, you can make your home and yard less interesting to cockroaches and make it more difficult for them to get into your home, but sometimes it can be a challenge to control moisture, food options, and harborage. This is where a pest management professional (PMP) can help. Your PMP can apply products to vulnerable locations to ensure full exclusion of cockroaches and help to keep roach populations low in your yard so that, in fall, you're going to have fewer cockroaches exploring your walls in search of a place to hide from the cold.
