Identifying a Cockroach Infestation

Cockroaches are nocturnal, which means that they are most active at night. This can make it difficult to identify a cockroach infestation when you are not awake to see them. They are also experts at hiding, so you may not see them during the day. However, there are other signs that indicate a cockroach problem.

The most common signs of a cockroach infestation include:

  • Seeing cockroaches: The most obvious sign of a cockroach infestation is seeing cockroaches. These pests are fast runners and will scatter when the lights are turned on. They prefer to stay in dark, moist areas and are often found in the kitchen and bathroom.
  • Shed skin: Cockroaches shed their skin as they grow. If you notice small, oval-shaped shells in the kitchen or bathroom, this is a sign of a cockroach infestation.
  • Feces: Cockroaches leave behind small, brown feces that are about the size of a grain of rice. You may notice these droppings in the kitchen, bathroom, or basement.
  • Musty odor: If you have a cockroach infestation, you may notice a musty odor in the home. This smell is often described as smelling like an oily or musty odor.

Since cockroaches are nocturnal and are experts at hiding, it can be difficult to eliminate a cockroach infestation. You may kill the ones you see, but there are likely many more that you don’t see. The most effective way to get rid of a cockroach infestation is to call a professional.

Safe & Effective Cockroach Control

There are more than 4,000 species of cockroaches, but only about 30 species are considered pests. The most common species of cockroaches that you may find in your home are the German cockroach, American cockroach, and Oriental cockroach. Each species requires a different approach to eliminate the infestation.

Our technicians are knowledgeable about the different species of cockroaches and their habits. We are equipped to provide effective cockroach control in New York for any species of cockroach.

Our cockroach control services begin with a thorough inspection of your home to identify the species of cockroach that is causing the problem and the extent of the infestation. We will explain the treatment options and answer your questions. We offer safe and effective roach control in New York to rid your home of these pests.

Preventing Cockroaches

After we have eliminated the infestation, you can help prevent cockroaches by making your home less attractive to these pests. Cockroaches are attracted to food, water, and warm, dark places to hide. Keeping your home clean and free of food debris and water sources is the best way to prevent cockroaches.

Here are some tips to help prevent a cockroach infestation:

  • Keep your home clean and free of food debris
  • Store food in airtight containers
  • Regularly empty trash cans and keep them tightly sealed
  • Wipe up spills and crumbs right away
  • Fix leaky pipes and faucets
  • Keep your home dry and free of excess moisture
  • Seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors
  • Install door sweeps and repair damaged screens
  • Keep your home free of clutter to eliminate places for cockroaches to hide
