Cockroaches are one of the most common pest found in homes. Once cockroaches make themselves at home in a house, it can be very difficult to get rid of them.

Cockroaches cause serious troubles in homes by snacking on food, damaging properties as well as leaving poops around the house. Not only are they a nuisance to our daily lives, these cockroaches may also pose health threats by spreading germs to us.

Typically leaving an offensive odour, they are easily discovered in an enclosed area. Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal, so seeing them in the broad daylight will signify a heavy infestation as the over populated nest will make way for new nest out of their usual foraging patterns.

Eliminate Habitat and Prevent Entry

Removing cockroach hiding places and entry points will drive cockroaches away and prevent future infestations. Inside the home, seal cracks in dark places like cupboards or building cracks with caulk, repair water leaks, and remove moisture in crawl spaces and other dark areas by increasing ventilation. Weather-seal doors and gaps around windows, and caulk around escutcheon plates that surround pipes or faucets that provide access to the wall voids or any other area that roaches could easily enter or hide.

Signs and Symptoms of Cockroach Infestation Problems

  • The best time to spot roaches is during the night since they are nocturnal insects.
  • Cockroaches can produce a large amount of droppings.
  • Finding Cockroach Egg Cases. Infestations continue to grow because Cockroaches breed aggressively which mean infestations can grow quickly. This may help you to identify the problem quickly but may also mean that professional removal is required due to the size of the problem you may be faced with.
  • Cockroaches can produce a musty, pungent odour that increases the longer the infestation occurs for. This smell can come from large numbers of roaches or even just one cockroach in the case of species such as the German roach.
  • Finding Smear Marks where water is prominent, brown coloured smear marks may appear on surfaces and walls near to the floor.
  • Finding evidence of moulted skin. Brownish skins can be found near to where they cockroaches are breeding as young roaches shed their skin about 5-8 times when they mature to adulthood.
  • Signs of Damage to Household and Business Items. Look for signs of damage to food packaging and other organic goods such as books and leather.

Cockroach Control Prevention Tips

  • Keep your house or premises clean, this seems pretty obvious but cockroaches are attracted to various forms of uncleanliness.
  • Keep the trash can closed, clean, and emptied regularly.
  • Clean on top and beneath the refrigerator as this is where insects can be attracted to.
  • Do not leave dirty dishes and utensils in the sink.
  • Clean surfaces to remove any food residue.
  • Seal up cracks and holes inside your pantry, between the countertop and the wall, and in the baseboards.
  • Fix any water leaks as cockroaches can be attracted to moisture and water from leaks in pipes. Some cockroaches can survive for months without food, but they will only survive days without water. Areas like the sink, behind the toilet and near the tub should be regularly inspected for leaks and condensation.
  • Keep your space as cool as possible, whilst you cannot control the weather, keeping your home or business premises as cool as possible will at least confine cockroaches to the ground.
