It’s just not fair. Cockroaches are supposed to be tropical bugs. As in, from the tropics. Where it’s hot. Our weather definitely isn’t tropical! So why are these gross, disruptive, apparently-not-just-tropical roaches doing around here this time of year? Isn’t winter supposed to kill things like roaches? Isn’t that all winter is good for?

In fact, cockroaches are more likely to invade homes during winter than they are any other time of year. Here’s everything you need to know about why roaches are around, what they want, and how to stop them.
