What attracts cockroaches?

Anyway, practically every two days a cockroach comes up. I'm freakishly afraid of insects, so this really bugs (pun intended) me.

They always appear in the bathroom, and I wonder every time how the hell they came in. Somehow, most of the time they end up upside down, but a few times their legs were still wiggling. They're really hard to kill for me too.

To simplify this, here are the questions I would like to be answered:
1. What attracts cockroaches?
2. How do cockroaches enter people's homes?
3. What is the best way to kill them?
4. How can I prevent them from entering my home?

Thank you :)
