Why does my Home have so FEW roaches?

I rent a 50 year old ground level home that has NO pests! This in Hawaii where every home has loads of roaches, ants, etc etc. I have seen one roach in 2 1/2 years. and a neighborhood where they abound!
WE have used no pesticides in the past 2 1/2 years and
the house has not been tented in 5 years
I am worried that at some point in the past someone treated this place with something long acting and toxic: worried for my kids mostly.
Landlord says not to his knowledge. What tests could one reasonably do to see if toxins are a problem? Is this fear ridiculous?
