At True Blue Termite and Pest Control, we believe you deserve to be comfortable in your home, and one thing that can have a severe negative impact on your comfort is the presence of cockroaches. These insects are not only disgusting to look at, but they can also cause real problems—they have been known to spread diseases and can contaminate your food prep areas just by walking over them.
Unfortunately, cockroaches are good at staying out of sight, so it’s possible for them to be in your home before you ever see one. In this article, our team will go over a few things you can look out for in order to tell whether you need our cockroach removal services.
- Droppings- One sign that you need cockroach removal services is the presence of cockroach droppings, which are less than a millimeter in diameter and can easily be mistaken for coffee grounds or pepper. They can be difficult to spot or identify if you don’t know what you’re looking for, so keep a careful eye out for them.
- Odor- Cockroach droppings will also give your home a distinct musty smell. This odor is caused by pheromones that will attract more cockroaches, so it’s best to call our team to come inspect your property as soon as possible if you smell anything unusual.
- Egg Cases- Cockroach egg cases are a third sign that you need cockroach removal services. These egg cases are the same brown color as cockroaches themselves and are roughly oblong in shape and a little smaller than a penny in size.
