Warning Signs for Cockroach Infestations
If cockroaches are crawling around in plain daylight, this is a sign you may have a cockroach infestation. Consider these additional warning signs to know if you need professional roach control services to eliminate cockroaches for good.
- Cockroach Feces – Small cockroach feces resemble black pepper or coffee grounds, while larger cockroaches leave cylindrical droppings. The extent of visible feces can indicate the severity of an infestation.
- Unpleasant Smells – If your home is infested with cockroaches, you may experience a strong oily or musty odor.
- Dead Cockroaches – As roaches die, they leave oval-shaped body cases which can be visible behind furniture or other dark locations. Sometimes they can be found in cracks in the walls or spaces between books.
- Search Dark, Hidden Places – Since roaches prefer to hide in dark, moist places, search behind stoves, refrigerators, inside major appliances, or even under floor drains. Due to the ability to flatten their bodies, they can sneak into narrow areas such as behind wallpaper, within cracks, or under rubber mats.
How Do Cockroaches Enter Your Home?
Roaches aren’t necessarily an indicator of a dirty home. Cockroaches could enter your home in several ways.
- A roach may have burrowed into a grocery bag at the store.
- One may have jumped into your briefcase or purse at work.
- You may have carried roach eggs into your home without even knowing it.
- Many species are attracted to water or can come inside when there is heavy rains outside
Because roaches typically only come out at night, you may not have known you had roaches until they bred and added more family members to the party. They thrive on very little and need only water, food, and warm shelter to live a happy life.
I Have Cockroaches in My Home – What Do I Do?
If you experienced one or all of the warning signs of a cockroach infestation, now is the time to act. The longer you wait, the more time cockroaches have to breed and make their home in your walls or behind your furniture and appliances.
