How Do Roaches Get in My Home?
You probably know that roaches can get into your home or office through cracks in the foundation or exterior walls, but they can also enter in many other ways. Roaches can also squeeze through openings that are as small as 1/6th of an inch wide, which means they can scoot under doors or loose windows. These insects are creative and won’t let anything stop them, so you might also find that they are entering through drains or hitching rides on cardboard boxes or newspapers. If you bring firewood into your home to use in your fireplace, be sure to store it away from the house and bring in only what you need; roaches enjoy living in wood piles and can come in with you as you get ready to light the fire.
Where Should I Look for Roaches?
These insects are nocturnal, so you might not notice them as you go about your day-to-day activities. However, you may spot them in dark areas, like inside cabinets, underneath appliances, or in drawers. Be sure to check underneath your refrigerator, behind the stove, and in any floor drains.
How Will I Know if I Have an Infestation?
If you see a roach out in daylight, that’s a sure sign there are more hiding around. Other things you can look for include roach droppings (these will resemble black pepper flakes), egg casings that are long and oval in shape and light brown in color. Do you smell something that’s just not right? When roaches inhabit a space, they can leave a lingering musty or oily odor, which is another sign that it’s time to call in an expert. Be sure to check underneath furniture, behind books on bookshelves, and in other dark areas of your home for signs. If you’re not sure, you can always call our team for a free inspection.
