Good Questions: Cockroaches In The Dishwasher?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

Terrifying question: I have cockroaches living in the door of my dishwasher. It's an 1896 tenement, so I accept them as neighbors, but is there any way to get and them out of my diswasher? I would send a photo, but it's just too upsetting.

Thank for any help that you can give, Amy

Dear Amy,

This is mindboggling, especially since we know you just renovated and that is a brand spanking new dishwasher.

The only recourse seems to be a good exterminator. Pest Away has a great rating. We would give them a call.

We would also pull out your dishwasher (if you can) and take a look at what it is like back there. If there are any holes or any moisture, we'd fill the holes and dry the moisture immediately. You might have a leaky hose.

Anyone else!?!?
