Cockroaches are nasty little insects. They have been around for thousands of years and are even thought to predate dinosaurs. This means that they are especially good at surviving many different hostile conditions. There are also over 4000 species of them worldwide.
Thankfully, in Maryland there are really only four species of roaches that will infest homes: the German, Brown-banded, American, and Oriental cockroach. But, how do you know when you have roaches in your home? Today, we answer this question by listing the most important signs of a roach infestation and tell you how to solve the problem.
The best way to keep a roach problem from getting out of hand is to spot their presence in your home early. The following signs indicate a roach problem, consisting of german cockroaches, brown-banded cockroaches, and oriental cockroaches. If you experience any or all of them, you should contact a reputable pest control company like Barefoot Pest Control.
Probably the best sign that you have a cockroach problem is if you actual see a roach. This may be somewhat hard as roaches are nocturnal insects. But, witnessing them in your home at any hour is a sure sign that there are others that you don’t see living in your home.
Just like physically seeing a roach in your home, finding roach droppings anywhere in your home is a 100% accurate way to tell if you have a roach problem. Since roaches come in different sizes, their feces be various sizes as well. But, all cockroach feces will have the relative shape and texture of ground coffee or black pepper.
You may be wondering how an odor could indicate a roach presence, especially since there are many causes of odors in your home. A way to tell if an unpleasant odor in your home is due to roaches is if it has a musty smell or grows in intensity. The more roaches you have the worse and more intense the smell. As the smells continue to grow, and the cockroach infestations begin to grow you are likely to notice dead cockroaches around the property as generations come and go.
Also, if you experience the musty smell in combination with some of the other signs on this list, you will know for certain that you have roaches.
As a final sign, the presence of roach egg casings or oothecae is a strong indicator that your home has a roach problem. You will recognize a oothecae by it oblong shape and brown color, when you find the egg casings in their hiding places. Roaches breed extremely fast and the roach eggs casings are left behind by the hatching roaches. You will find oothecae in pantries, behind furniture, or in other dark and protected areas surr.
Alright, so you have seen the signs of roaches and know that you have a problem. Now, what do you do? You can always buy roach traps and sprays at a store, but these will not guarantee the complete eradication of the problem. Your best bet is to call in professionals.

The office was able to quickly arrange a visit to get rid of a wasp nest in our soffit. The technician came twice to fog and re-fog. We only had to pay for the first visit as they guaranteed their results. The wasps are now gone.
