That’s a very good question. At Bugs by Brian® what we look for is if they’re out during the day and/or if there are fecal droppings, egg pouches and dead cockroaches present. Now let’s break each one of these down in a little more detail.
Note, the sooner you can detect a cockroach problem the easier it is to clear it up quickly and with the least amount of expense. The best way to prevent an infestation is to have a bi-monthly treatment for pests by a pest control professional, like Bugs by Brian®.
Roaches are nocturnal. They feast for food and water while we sleep. So, when you see roaches out during the daytime, it is time to call a pest control company, because you have a roach infestation. And this will take more than one or two treatments. You will need to set up a program to make sure the infestation is eliminated.
Now let’s talk about the fecal droppings. Small roaches will leave a dropping that is like the size of black pepper and the larger roaches droppings would be the size of bakery sprinkles. You can take photos to show your local pest control company or call Bugs by Brian® at 636-394-0101 for a no-obligation cockroach inspection. Always remember the more the droppings, the more the roaches.
If you see any signs of roach eggs, you must act immediately. The egg is oblong in shape and brownish in color. These casings hold multiple eggs inside them, for example the German Cockroach can hold up to 50 eggs. Therefore, when found, act immediately.
And the easiest route to find out if you have a cockroach infestation is to look under your sinks, refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and inside your cabinets. What you will be looking for is dead cockroaches. If found you have a cockroach problem.
