How To Spot A Roach Infestation In Your Home

Roach infestation
October 31, 2016

Roach infestation should be a major concern this fall if your home is running amok with tiny little critters. If you are the type of person who is squeamish at the sight of bugs crawling around, you will definitely want to make sure to take the steps necessary in removing them. Sure, roaches may appear small and unimposing, but they can bring a huge amount of trouble to your home this season. The thing about roaches is that they travel in groups and quickly grow in number. When you see one roach in your home, it may indicate there are quite a few more roaming about. Packs of roaches will definitely become more of a common site in homes across the North Shore now that we’re entering the colder months. They will be looking for warmer places to nest and if your home is currently filled with clutter, it gives them all the incentive they need to make themselves comfortable. From there, they prove to be terrible houseguests. They contaminate your food, resulting in allergic reactions, and can even emit an unpleasant odor that will filter through the home.

3 Signs You Have Roach Infestation

Not sure if you have roaches? Please pay attention to any of these warning signs in your home:

  1. Unpleasant Odors: Roaches can give off an unpleasant odor that will permeate throughout your entire home. It will only get worse the longer you allow roaches to linger in your home. The smell can be described as oily and musty.
  2. Egg Casings: Roaches will often leave their egg casings, which hold multiple eggs inside of it, around the house. The casings are usually brown and oblong. They carry 10 to 20 eggs inside of them. If they are given a chance to hatch, you may be left with a whole batch of roaches to worry over.
  3. Allergic Reactions: Are you noticing family members starting to break out with allergies? Don’t rule out roaches. They can bring numerous health issues to members of our household and you need to inspect your home before the situation grows worse.

How Can You Stop It?

In addition to service from Boz Pest Control, here are some simple things you can do around the house when you suspect roaches are present:

  1. Break out the Broom: A household chore like sweeping your floors may actually prove one of the most effective steps in ridding your home of roaches. Dirty floors with food, dirt, and debris are a prime spot for roaches to dwell. A floor sweep once a week will do a lot to ensure they don’t have a chance to hide.
  2. Change the Garbage: Taking out trash is another household activity that will prove useful in eliminating roaches. Roaches love to roam through garbage, as it provides them with all sorts of goods to nibble on. Change and take out your garbage to eliminate the threat of roaches so they’re robbed of the chance of getting their feelers on food waste.
  3. Clear Any Food: Open food containers, pizza boxes, open chip bags, and so much more will be at risk for roaches if you leave them on your counter tops. Instead, store food where it should be stored—cabinets, freezers, refrigerators. Store food in cabinets, freezers, and refrigerators. If foods needs to be on counters, cover it in plastic wrap.
  4. Avoid Piles of Laundry: Got any piles of laundry unfolded? Then you may want to work on that.  Piles of laundry will provide a soft, warm place for roaches to dwell. It won’t be too nice when they are residing in your favorite clothes, and you shouldn’t have to replace your entire wardrobe just due to a few bugs.
