Hide Visible Food

If there is poor sanitation of your home, be ready to welcome unknown guests at your home. White Roaches love to eat food if available. So, you have to hide your foods in safe cabins.

Just identify and stop the leaking pipes. Store the food on safe places in your kitchen and don’t provide the humidity to them.
