What Are The Signs of a Cockroach Infestation?
Cockroaches are nocturnal insects, meaning they are more active at night, which allows them to stay hidden from unsuspecting homeowners. To the untrained eye, you might never realize that you’re living with a cockroach infestation. However, there are several signs that a professional can use to identify if your home has a cockroach infestation. When you choose us for your cockroach pest control service, our team will locate these signs to determine the infestation’s extent and duration.

- Odors – There are over 120 different types of cockroach species in the United States. Some produce an acrid odor that may permeate items with which they have come in contact. If you notice a strong oily or musty smell, it can also be a sign of an infestation.
- Eggs – If left unchecked, a female cockroach can lay up to two million offspring in one year. Identifying an infestation early is pivotal to prevention. Roaches bundle their eggs in an egg case called oothecae, which looks like an opaque white pill.
- Sighting – The most obvious sign of an infestation is finding a living or dead cockroach in your home. Check at the back of your cabinets and under your kitchen appliances, any ideal place for roaches to thrive.
