The cockroach population thrives in areas where food, water and shelter are readily available. Cockroach control at the basic level therefore involves reduction or elimination of these components from the environment. Although it may seem impossible to completely eradicate cockroaches from your dwelling, you can always attain a certain level of control, so that very few of these insects are ever seen.
Cockroaches have changed very little in their 400 million years on earth. Because they evolved as scavengers of dead plant material, they prefer carbohydrates to proteins or fats. However, when they are hungry, they will feed on almost anything.
