What are the most common signs of a Blattodea infestation?  

Firstly, roaches are nocturnal insects; therefore, they can be tough to find. Secondly, they have the advantage of hiding quickly with their flat and sleek bodies. So, if their presence goes unnoticed, they can quickly breed into an infestation.

The most common signs of an infestation are:

  • Droppings: If you have these insects in your home, then they will leave droppings here and there. Roach droppings look like scattered coffee ground. However, the large ones leave cylindrical-shaped faeces.
  • Foul smell: The area where they have left their faeces will have a musty and stale odour
  • Spotting live cockroaches or their legs/wings: When your home is infested, you might spot a living roach wandering or their legs or wings at some corner of your home.

If you notice any of the signs mentioned above, call pest control service providers instantly. The experts will come and eradicate them effectively.
