I recently found a few of what look like juvenile cockroaches around my room. They haven't been around the guinea pig cage, but my only idea for where they could have come from is from hay (we have never found any around our house/garage before now). Has anyone had issues with cockroaches in their hay? I use Small Pet Select.
Luckily, I'm leaving for a while so we're going to fumigate my room, but if there's any chance the hay is the issue I definitely want to know so I can buy something different and not risk reintroducing them.

And even if it is the hay, the problem may be where it was stored and not with the supplier.
Can you move the hay to the garage, open it up, and see if you find roaches?
But just as a recommendation, don't fumigate your room. Roaches are more easily killed by perimeter sprays around the edges of the room.
And we're doing EVERYTHING to kill any roaches, including the perimeter sprays. We also have issues with moths in the closets so the fumigation is also to take care of them.
