Just saying the word is enough to make some people shudder… Roaches. They’re one of the worst bugs to find in your home, and their arrival is meet with a quick stomp from your shoe. If you miss them with the heel of your boot, they’ll probably survive just about everything else.

Roaches are known to carry diseases and deserve to be outside, not in your home. Let our team of pest control heroes swoop in to save the day and give you back the clean and calm space you deserve! Call us at 888-MRCLEGG for more information and let us help you schedule your free inspection.
How Did Roaches Get in My Home?
Roaches, while long in length and width, are relatively skinny. They can squeeze through openings that measure just 1/16th of an inch. Gaps around doors, in window trim, or around siding is one way they can get in, but there are less obvious ways, as well. Roaches may hitch a ride in a paper grocery bag, in cardboard boxes, or even in your briefcase! They can also climb through grates and scurry under door jambs. Keeping your house clean will certainly help prevent these critters from making a permanent residence, but it will not deter them from entering.
How Do I Know if I Have an Infestation?
If you see a roach in your home, that’s the first and most common sign. And where there is one, you can be sure there are probably more. However, there are other clues that will alert you to their presence. Be on the lookout for roach droppings, they will resemble black pepper flakes. Egg casings are another sign you have roaches; these will be long and light brown in color. That oily odor that you can’t quite place? That’s the third hint.
Where Should I Look for Roaches?
Roaches are nocturnal insects, so they will be most active at night. You can commonly find them in dark places during the day, like in cabinets or drawers or under appliances. Check under your refrigerator, oven, and sink, and look in floor drains as well. You can also search behind and underneath book shelves for droppings or egg cases. Any location in your home or office that is dark, cool, and damp will be a great place to check for roaches. If you’d like some help, our team can come in and conduct an inspection to fully evaluate your unique situation.
