About Cockroaches

Talk about unpleasant surprises. These dark-brown or reddish-brown insects can reach up to 1.5 inches in length depending on the species. They hide in dark places and crawl out when you least expect it. Their long, flat bodies allow them to squeeze into food containers and slip through tiny cracks with ease.

Cockroaches tend to hang around in filthy places, picking up harmful bacteria as they crawl. When the pests step foot in your home, these bacteria can contaminate food and surfaces. Their fecal matter can trigger allergies and asthma, and a serious infestation can produce an unpleasant odor that emanates throughout your entire home or building.

How to Detect Roaches

Spotting a cockroach in your home is the first sign that you may have a problem. These pests prefer dark, warm spaces and may be found in basements, sinks, bathtubs, crawlspaces and electrical areas. Keep an eye out for pepper-like excrement, skin casts and empty egg capsules along your floors or cabinets.

How to Prevent Cockroaches

The best way to help prevent cockroaches is to seal entry points and remove attractants. Keep your home, especially the kitchen and bathrooms, clean by vacuuming regularly and cleaning up spills as soon as they occur. Store food in sealed containers and take out the trash regularly. You should also make sure you’re not keeping an overly humid environment in your basement. Apply caulk to any cracks around doors and windows, install weather stripping on doors and ensure screens are tear-free.
