Store Near The Bathrooms
If you have a space near the bathroom you are using to store the extra and the unwanted, you cannot keep away the roaches.

Plastic is a much better option to store the essentials. Use the outdoor storage spaces for keeping the stacks of old newspapers.
The Sewage Drains
Roaches love hot and humid. Suppose the temperature goes below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The drains serve the purpose well, especially in summer and spring.

Regular cleaning of the drains is also a must.
Cracks And Leakages
The cockroaches proliferate. The sizeable cockroaches seem big enough to enter from the cracks, leakages, and holes.
The cockroaches’ slippery body permits them to enter through the cracks that grow up to the size of 1/6 inches.
They love to enter the home through the spaces around the pipes, the spaces between the windows and walls, and other similar gaps.
Before the season of cockroaches, make sure you seal all such openings properly. The under doors also make a simple way for the cockroaches.
If you have a laundry space in the bathroom, then the clothes would welcome the tiny cockroaches to hide within these.
The cockroaches find the clothing a safe space to lay the eggs. They would stay inside these clothes and then would leave when they are big enough.
