Cockroaches and Delivery Boxes?

I found a roach in my home. My son has been receiving a lot of game/computer deliveries in cardboard boxes which sit around forever after being opened. Could these deliveries be the source of the cockroach?

Absolutely! You should always open those boxes outside if possible or at least in the garage.

Absolutely. Roaches love glue. I worked in a small billing office years ago. One day we went to get a box of new envelopes from the storage closet. The glue had been eaten off all the brand new envelopes. We don't know if it happened in our storage closet or if the roaches came in the box from the printer. We had the entire office sprayed and then layed roach traps everywhere.


Open the boxes outside, bring the equipment in and leave the boxes outside. Buy a box of roach traps and place them around where the boxes were in the house. They last 3+ months and really work. Also, a real tip....Never lick an envelope to seal it.

If you mean did the roaches come in because of the boxes, no...they did probably come in from where they boxes originated, it's very common.
