What is a roach shelter?
Roaches are thigmatrophic, meaning they like pressure on their bodies. They can usually be found in cracks around the cabinetry in the kitchen or bathrooms (being close to water) depending on the variety on roaches. Roaches, like all other organisms are attracted to food and water, so food available to them or unsanitary conditions will attract roaches.
