Common Problems Cockroaches Cause
Do you have a friend that gently picks up bugs and carries them out of your home, when your practice is to stomp or slap them flat? Or maybe you are the bug lover. Either way, the end result is getting a pest out of your home. However, when it comes to cockroaches, both of the tactics above just don’t work. Roaches move too fast to catch, and even when stomped on, due to their impact-resistant exoskeleton, sometimes they just pop back up and keep running.
Did you know that a cockroach can withstand pressures of more than 900 times their body weight? But even if you do succeed in stomping on and killing countless roaches, there are likely hundreds more hiding out inside wall voids and other hidden places.
How To Identify Cockroach Infestations
When it comes to roaches, identification is not difficult. With a little bit of knowledge and investigation, you will know for certain if your home is infested. The most obvious sign that your home has roaches is seeing them running about. They can most commonly be seen at night, scurrying for cover, after a light is turned on. Another sign is if there are roaches nearby. Are your neighbors having issues with roaches? If so, your home is probably next.
Other signs of roaches include droppings that appear as tiny pepper- to grain-sized specks, and egg casings found near leaky pipes, in food cabinets, or around the base of your refrigerator.
A bad smell can be a sign of roaches. Has your home been smelling musty lately? That smell could be a byproduct of having cockroaches about.
Dangers Of Cockroaches
If you are wondering if you should be concerned about cockroaches in your home, the answer is a resounding yes. Cockroaches are filthy pests that spend their time in wet filthy areas such as in trashcans or around sewers before making their way into your home and across your countertops. They are known to spread a variety of dangerous diseases including Salmonella, typhoid, and poliomyelitis.
