Creepy, crawly and utterly disgusting, few things exist in the Atlanta area that can make your stomach turn than having cockroaches in your home. Chances are good that if you’ve seen one roach in your home, it’s not the only one. Roaches are nocturnal insects that hid in dark corners, under carpets, in your appliances, and in other hard-to-find areas. You may have them and not even know it until there is a total infestation.
However, there are ways to identify if you have cockroaches hiding in your house or apartment. If you notice any of the following signs of roaches, make sure to give us a call at Progressive Pest Control in Northeast Atlanta right away.
Signs of a Roach Infestation
- Feces: one of the most common indicators that you may have a roach problem is finding droppings around your home. The feces can be located anywhere, but will most often be found in the kitchen or bathroom. Look for small, dark specks that resemble coffee grinds.
- Egg Casings: Oothacae, or egg cases, can often be found in dark spaces like behind furniture or appliances. You’ll recognize them by their oval shape.
- Strange, Musty Smell: Certain types of cockroaches give off a musty smell that can be quite strong. If you start to notice an unpleasant musty odor that you can’t identify, you may have unwanted house guests.
