The first step is locating and eliminating any food and water sources that may be attracting the cockroaches. This includes keeping the apartment clean and free of crumbs or spills and properly storing food in sealed containers, and remembering to dispose of cookie boxes. Cockroaches love to eat the glue of cookie boxes as well. Next, find out where the cockroaches are hiding.

Cockroaches can hide under and around the kitchen and washroom sink, under countertops and vanity tops, around refrigerator engine compactor, stove structure, food boxes, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, cupboards, and many other spots. We also recommend inspecting cracks or crevices in walls, floors, or around windows, door frames, and baseboards and checking pipes and vents for potential entry points. If you already have cockroaches on your property, DO NOT SEAL OR SILICONE these areas before professional treatment. IF YOU SEAL OR SILICONE these areas before professional treatment, cockroaches will stock there and keep multiplying until the day when they will find the way out of the blocked spot. 

You can use insect monitors and glue traps to attract and capture cockroaches. These can be purchased at a local hardware store or contact a professional pest control service provider such as Provincial Pest Control.
