Can't get rid of cockroaches in my apartment?

Anonymous

I’ve been living in my apartment for over 2 years now. We’ve seen cockroaches & contacted the manager about it. We’ve had exterminators come over twice and I’m still seeing a few cockroache months after. I keep my apartment clean. Dishes are washed and put away every night. Trash is taken out every night. Our food is tightly stored & I sweep every night & clean the counters. I’m doing the best I can to prevent cockroaches but I don’t understand why I’m still seeing them since our place isn’t filthy. There is the possibility that the roaches are coming from a neighboring unit (I know my neighbors unfortunately aren’t as worried about cleaning because I hear them yelling about food being left out for days etc) But when I tried mentioning this to the manager they didn’t bother trying to see if the problem was coming from another unit. They send the maintenance guy to do a quick check but since he isn’t an exterminator I doubt he knows how to check well. When I first mentioned cockroaches, they came to check and said there was nothing but surely enough i kept seeing them. Has anyone else had this issue? What can I do? I reached out to the manager once again, I’m really hoping to be able to get rid of roaches once and for all
