Trash attracts cockroaches. And with a pile of it in a neighborhood in Detroit, residents fear the onslaught of the creepy crawlies.
According to one of the neighborhood residents, Bernice Richardson, the roaches have taken over their area, along with the big rats. And the cause of it, she said, were the piles of garbage and forgotten items their nasty neighbors left behind when they moved out last summer.
Richardson and her neighbors have already paid an exterminator to clear the pests off their houses and yards. However, the fact that the mounds of trash are still buried under the snow was making them anxious. Particularly, they fear that when the temperature rises again, the roaches and rats would return.
The residents said that they already informed the city officials about their problems. Nonetheless, the piles of garbage were yet to be cleaned.

“The view outside Bernice Richardson’s window is less than pleasant. Mounds of trash, forgotten furniture and old mattresses. It’s smelly, but not as bad as the critters crawling out of the debris pile.
“They have invaded the premises.” said Richardson. “I’m talking about roaches and those big rats.”
We’ve learned the nasty neighbors moved out this past summer but left their trash behind. It’s still there under a blanket of snow.”

Indeed, trash draws in cockroaches. And given the fact that those insects bring with them bacteria and germs that could cause various illnesses, you must keep your house clean, especially from food crumbs and left-overs.
But of course, that’s not just the only thing you must do. In case those roaches already got in, just cleaning your place won’t kill them or stop from multiplying. And so, it would be best for you to get a roach spray. That way, you could kill roaches fast and easy.
Unlike the majority of the pest products, Roach Bully is organic-based. That means whenever sprayed, it leaves no residues that could be harmful to anyone’s health. In fact, it is already in EPA’s FIFRA 25(b) list, so, rest assured that it is safe.
Additionally, it is specially formulated for cockroaches. Apart from the adults of those insects, it could also kill even their young and eggs.
