Evidence of a Cockroach Infestation

Evidence of a Cockroach Infestation


Cockroaches are their own special brand of creepy. If they invade your kitchen, it can make it feel like you no longer have a usable cooking space. In restaurants and other places that have commercial kitchens, a cockroach infestation can quickly give your establishment an undesirable reputation. When you first notice an indication of a cockroach infestation, you'll want to call in a reputable pest service that will quickly and efficiently take care of the problem. Here's a look at five signs of a cockroach infestation.

Egg Casings

Cockroach casings typically hold between ten and fifty individual eggs, depending on the particular species. The casings usually have a brownish color and a cylindrical shape. They are often found in hidden areas, like behind furniture.

Finding Dead Roaches

When you find roach carcasses, it doesn't necessarily mean that the problem is taking care of itself. Rather, this is a sign that there are probably many live roaches somewhere nearby on the premises.

Finding Live Roaches during Daylight Hours

Although roaches are naturally nocturnal creatures, they may become active during daylight hours when the infestation is an especially bad one. Finding live roaches in the daytime often means that the problem is much worse than it had initially appeared to be.

Fecal Matter

With a resemblance to coffee grounds or black pepper, roach feces is small, dark, and scattered. The more fecal matter you find, the worse the infestation is.

Musky Smell

There are some species of cockroaches that emit an oily odor that can give your home a musky stench.
