Signs of cockroaches

Cockroaches are common household pests that can be both unsightly and unsanitary. Recognising the signs of a cockroach infestation is essential for effective pest control. Here are common signs of cockroaches in your home:

  • Visible Cockroaches: The most obvious sign is seeing cockroaches in and around your home, especially at night when they are most active. Depending on the species, cockroaches vary in colour and size.
  • Egg Cases: Cockroach egg cases, also known as oothecae, can be found in hidden, dark locations. These cases are typically brown or tan and may be oval or elongated in shape.
  • Shed Skin: Cockroaches shed their exoskeletons as they grow. Finding these shed skins in areas where cockroaches are active can indicate an infestation.
  • Musty Odour: Cockroaches produce a musty, unpleasant odour that can become more pronounced as the infestation grows. If you notice an unusual odour in your home, it could be due to cockroaches.
  • Nocturnal Activity: Cockroaches are primarily nocturnal, so you may hear them moving around at night, making rustling or clicking sounds.
  • Infested Areas: Cockroaches tend to congregate in warm, moist, and dark places. Common hiding spots include kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and crawl spaces.

Cockroaches are known for their ability to hide and reproduce rapidly, so it’s crucial to take action promptly if you suspect an infestation. It’s vital to seek professional pest control services to effectively eliminate the cockroach problem.
