How Can I Be Sure It's Roaches In My Home?
The best way to identify an active cockroach infestation is to see these pests crawling around inside your home. Roaches have flat, durable bodies, six legs, and two antennae. Some species grow to be over two inches long, while others are well under an inch.
Another way to identify these pests is to look for the signs they leave behind. Common signs of cockroaches include fecal droppings, shed skin, grease marks, egg capsules, and dead roaches. Sometimes, these signs are hard to spot. If you think you might have a problem with these pests and want to know for certain if they are around, bring in our team. We have the tools and training to find out what you are up against.
Are Roaches In The House Dangerous?
You should never live with an active cockroach infestation. These pests are nasty, inside and out. They regularly eat dirty things and crawl through filthy areas. This leaves them teeming with all sorts of disease-causing organisms. They spread these sickness vectors by rubbing their dirty bodies over surfaces, consuming left-out food, and defecating throughout homes.
In addition to this, a cockroach’s shed skin and fecal droppings can cause irritation for people with asthma or other respiratory problems. The more of these pests there are inside your home, the more likely you will experience these health problems.
Why Do I Have Roaches In My House?
There are a number of reasons why roaches might decide to invade your home. To help you understand these pests and what motivates them to come indoors, here are some of the most common reasons these bugs might come onto your property.
They find a gap, crack, or other opening in your home’s exterior.
They find some crumbs under your couch.
They find an open box of food in your pantry.
They find a tight, moist space between your refrigerator and the wall.
They find nice hiding spots around your laundry room, basement, and other secluded areas around your home.
