Nothing has the power to make you shiver quite like opening a cabinet and finding a roach or flipping on the light in a dark kitchen only to watch one scurry across the floor.
Don’t worry – your home doesn’t even have to be dirty to find a roach colony living inside. Roaches are everywhere, and no matter why they moved in, roach control is an absolute must because they pose a huge health risk.
How Can you Tell if your Home Needs Roach Control?
Apart from sighting a roach in broad daylight, there are a few ways to determine whether you might have an infestation.
- Look for droppings. Cockroach excrement looks like spilled pepper.
- Check the dark places in the house, such as: under the sink, under the mats, or in other dark cracks. If you have roaches, the chances are good they’ll be hiding in there.
- Look for carcasses and eggs in dark places.
- Does your home have a smell? Cockroaches can create a musty odor that seems tough to get rid of.
