Why do roaches come out at night?

Cockroaches are known to be nocturnal, but have you ever wondered why? They, it turns out, have distinct activity rhythms in which they are passive during the day and begin hunting for food at night. This normally occurs 4 hours after the lights are turned out. They emerge to feed on whatever food is left out, pet food in a dish, crumbs on the floor, rubbish, muck between the stove and counter, or any other source of fresh or rotting food matter they can discover in your home.

Do they show up during the day? Yes. However, if you notice cockroaches during the day, it's a sign that you have a serious infestation. Because food sources are limited during the day for the population of cockroaches present, those roaches are forced to look for food at less-than-ideal hours.
