Four Ways To Tell If You Have A Roach Infestation
If you think you may have cockroaches in your home, it’s time to take action before the problem gets worse. Here are four ways that you can tell if you have a roach infestation:
1. Roach Droppings
One surefire sign that you have a roach problem is roach droppings. The small black flecks may resemble coffee grounds, and seeing droppings concentrated in an area typically means that is where the roaches are congregating and looking for food.
2. A Bad Smell
Cockroaches emit a bad oily or musky smell. One or two roaches won’t typically smell like anything, but if you have an infestation, you’ll be able to catch a whiff.
3. Seeing a Cockroach in the Daytime
You may think that actually seeing a cockroach is a telltale sign there is a problem, but since roaches are nocturnal, they aren’t usually caught in the act. Seeing one in the daytime may indicate that you have a complete infestation.
4. Dead Roaches and Egg Cases
Finding dead roaches or the egg casings left behind by recently hatched roaches is a bad sign of a roach infestation.
