PS4 Cockroach Infestation Happening Frequently
According to some independent console repairmen, the PS4 cockroach problem has been happening for a while now. Many console owners have been turning in their supposed-to-be broken consoles to be fixed because they did not know that it was actually infested with these nasty bugs. One repairman actually had bags of roaches heaped up in a corner of the room, which came from infested PS4s, Kotaku reported.
PS4 Cockroach Infestation Explained By Repairmen
The reason for the PS4's to be infested with cockroaches was quite simple. Most PS4 owners would store their console systems in dark or enclosed areas, which is quite welcoming for the nasty bugs. Cities that are dark and warm have a big risk of hosting these bugs in the console.
Another factor for the cockroach infestation in the PS4 was its design. It has ventilation grates that are wider, which were easier to invade and lay eggs inside. The power supply is also inside the PS4, which can make it easily warm, and can lure the bugs inside.

He said that it is best for the console system to be put on display on top of a table where there is more airflow.
