Cockroaches are one of the most disgusting and disturbing pests to find crawling through your home. Thankfully, even when an infestation is present, extermination is possible, as is prevention of any future problems.
Cockroaches are excellent at hiding in difficult to reach places, can easily multiply, and are notorious for carrying a variety of dangerous diseases. Since they oftentimes only come out at night, it may be difficult to realize you have a problem until it’s grown into a full-blown infestation. Perhaps the worst thing about cockroaches is their ability to not only survive, but to thrive, in even the most unsavory of conditions, which makes it possible for them to hide in places other pests wouldn’t normally be found.
Identifying an Infestation
Although some of the warning signs of the presence of cockroaches in your home may be easy to overlook, here are some tell-tale signs of an infestation:
- You start seeing cockroaches during daylight hours.
- You notice a musty or oily odor in your home.
- Cockroach feces is present in your home.
- You find dead cockroaches or cast skins in your home.
- Oval-shaped egg cases begin turning up around your house.

When it comes to cockroaches, prevention truly is the key to avoiding damage to your home, your belongings, and even to your health. If an infestation is already present, it’s important to contact a professional exterminator immediately, like the knowledgeable experts at Preventive Pest Control.
