Cockroaches & Your Home
Cockroaches come in different sizes and shapes, with different species that have different habits and preferences. For example, German cockroaches are tough and can survive in many unfriendly circumstances, while their American or Oriental cousins are more susceptible to dying from dehydration.
At the most basic level, cockroaches prefer dark, humid environments and tend to be nocturnal creatures. They primarily seek out environments that have food, shelter, and water readily available – your home could be the perfect fit.
How Do You Know You Have a Cockroach Infestation?
In addition to seeing the insects themselves, there are several other signs of cockroach infestations to watch out for:
- Unpleasant odors: A cockroach infestation is usually accompanied by a damp, oily, or musty odor
- Cockroach eggs: Oval-shaped egg cases are often found in hiding spots like the spaces behind your sofa or inside your pantry
- Cockroach feces: If you notice a coffee ground like residue on the surfaces of your home, it is a sign of a cockroach infestation
Any of the above symptoms can indicate the presence of a cockroach infestation. But there is no reason to panic – the team at 1st Response Pest Control can help you get your cockroach problem under control.
Why Do I Have Roaches if My Home is Clean?
Some people only associate having a cockroach problem with having a messy home. If you are someone that cleans your home thoroughly on a regular basis, you may be shocked to see find roaches.
Some of the factors that can attract cockroaches to otherwise clean homes include:
- Moisture from leaking sinks and appliances.
- Landscaping features such as palm trees
- Sources of food. Cockroaches can live off of almost anything including cardboard boxes, pet food, and hair.
- Easy access into your home through tears in screens, gaps under doors or windows, and other points of entry.
If you live in an apartment, however, other factors may be at play, such as:
- Your neighbor may have attracted roaches by having a messy apartment.
- Roaches that your neighbor has attracted can make their way to yours by searching for additional sources of food, water, or shelter. They can do this by following the plumbing and utility lines, giving them access to several different units.
How Do You Get Rid of Cockroaches?
Our team uses a variety of baits and treatments to eliminate the cockroaches and prevent them from re-infesting your home. We typically recommend regular treatments – such as monthly or every other month – in order to keep cockroaches away long-term. We will work with you to understand the extent of your problems and your preference for ongoing maintenance.
What Does a Baby Cockroach Look Like?
Baby cockroaches, like their adult counterparts, look light to dark brown. They measure around 1/8th of an inch. They do not have wings yet, and their bodies are softer than adults.
During their early life stages, baby cockroaches molt several times as they grow in size and strength. In some species, such as german cockroaches, the young cockroaches closely resemble adults. In others, such as the smokey brown cockroach, the young are striped while the adults are solid-colored.
If you see one baby cockroach, you can almost be certain that there are more around.
