That is a pretty low number to see over or a three year period if you had secret infestation.
My in-laws are terrible at keeping their kitchen clean (so much so that I'll go over there and clean it for them). I have seen roaches on occasion there.
But usually that's because I'll open doors and drawers quickly and won't turn on more than the little light over the stove if in their kitchen at night. In short - it's hard to miss them and I've seen more than 2-4. They know there's a problem and they know what they'd have to do to fix it...
A bit O/T but somewhat funny. Last summer DH and I were in the next town over, around supper time, and decided to get some fast food. Well, I can't eat what he wanted to have so I got a sandwich from somewhere else and brought it in with me while he ordered what he wanted. I was sitting there eating my sandwich and a roach comes strolling by on the divider between the booths. It stopped and watched me... then tried to come closer to
me. Made me glad I had food from somewhere else. I told DH that the place's food was so bad that even the roaches didn't want it. And yes, I told the roach (in front of other people) that it couldn't have my sandwich.
Not so funny is the fact that a lot of restaurants and fast food places do have problems with roaches.
