How to Confirm Suspicions That Cockroaches May Be Present

 

Cockroaches are nocturnal, so they’re most active after you’ve gone to bed. They also hide behind appliances, under floorboards, and in drains, so it can be hard to know if you have a cockroach problem. There are some things you can look out for, including:

  • Droppings: Cockroach feces varies on the size of the insects. Smaller roaches, like German cockroaches, have droppings that look like coffee grounds. Larger species have droppings that are more cylindrical, or like a black grain of rice.
  • Unpleasant smells: Cockroach pheromones have a distinct, unpleasant smell. If there are enough insects, you’ll notice a musty odor that only gets worse over time.
  • Eggs: Instead of laying typical eggs, cockroaches create pouches that can contain up to 30 nymphs. These pouches, or ootheca, are bean-shaped and can be black, red, or brown.
  • Shed skins: As they grow, cockroaches molt and leave behind their shed skins. This can happen 5-8 times during their life cycle, so you’ll likely see these skins if you have an infestation.

More About German Cockroaches

German cockroaches are the most common species worldwide. They’re less than an inch long, with light brown bodies and two dark stripes down their backs. They have wings, but prefer to run instead. German cockroaches are attracted to moisture, so they’ll usually hide in kitchens or bathrooms. They reproduce incredibly quickly, which is why it’s so important to call the professionals as soon as you notice a cockroach problem.

What Attracts Cockroaches?

 

Almost anything can attract cockroaches to your home. That’s why it’s important to try and keep your home tidy, as well as seal off potential entry points like under doors, around utility lines, and attic vents.

Cockroaches are drawn to:

  • Kitchen trash
  • Grease on stove tops or counters
  • Dirty dishes with food on them
  • Excess moisture
  • Food crumbs on the floor
  • Leaky pipes or faucets

How to Prevent an Infestation

Now that you know what attracts cockroaches, it’s easier to prevent an infestation! Simple things like keeping leftovers in an airtight container, washing the dishes after dinner, and finding a garbage can with a proper-fitting lid can go a long way.
