Visible Signs Of Roaches: How To Identify An Infestation

It is sometimes easy to identify cockroaches. If you actively see one of these bugs skittering around inside your home, it is likely that you are dealing with a serious infestation. The best way to assess if these pests are around is to look for the signs they leave behind.

Here are some common signs of cockroaches that might help you identify these pests:

  • Dead roaches
  • Shed skin
  • Egg casings
  • Fecal droppings
  • Grease marks

If you do not want to crawl around your home looking for these pests, bring in our team. We know how to identify cockroaches quickly and would be happy to help you assess your risk.

Health Risks: Cockroaches Spread Disease And Trigger Allergies

Having cockroaches inside your home is not good, to put things lightly. These bugs often carry harmful bacteria, pathogens, and parasitic worms. If they spread these sickness vectors over your food, countertops, and other surfaces around your home, you might get sick.

Another concern with common cockroaches is their ability to trigger asthma attacks and allergic reactions with their shed skin and fecal droppings. This problem, however, only occurs with more severe infestations. Our hope is that you find a solution to these pests long before they cause any of these problems.

Effective Ways To Keep Roaches Out: Essential Prevention Measures

Detering roaches from your home is a great place to start. If you don’t know how to deter these pests, consider starting with these prevention tips and tricks.

  • Identify and seal holes, cracks, and gaps around your home’s exterior foundation.
  • Invest in new weatherstripping, door sweeps, and screens to seal your home.
  • Make sure your living areas are clean and tidy.
  • Check your trash cans to make sure they have tight-fitting lids and that they are clean.
  • Address leaky piping, damaged fixtures, and clogged gutters.
  • Use a dehumidifier indoors.

"Ryan did a very thorough job in spraying around the house. He walked the exterior of the house with me to learn my specific needs. He was even very helpful to help move the humming bird feeders before this initial spray.  Daren was also very informative I’m explaining the services.  They were able to come out the day I called and were prompt arriving."
