Keep reading to learn what you should do to keep these disgusting bugs away from your home. 

Step One: How To Identify A Cockroach Infestation

Many types of cockroaches are in this part of the world. But all roach species have the same basic appearance, including an oval-shaped body, six legs, and two long antennae. 

They like to stay out of sight as much as possible. You might not see roaches crawling around your home if you have an infestation. Instead, you might only see these signs of roaches:

  • Dark-colored smear marks
  • Reddish-brown roach egg sacs that are rectangular shaped
  • Discarded cockroach skin sheds
  • Egg sac casings

If you have a roach infestation in your home, you may also notice a foul, musty odor that doesn't go away and worsens with time. The pheromones in the urine and feces of the roaches cause this foul odor. While the smell can be unpleasant, some people also experience allergic reactions to the roach's bodily waste. 

Step Two: Understand The Health Risks Related To Roach Infestations

Not only can cockroaches cause severe allergy symptoms and asthma attacks in some people, but they can also make everyone sick by spreading harmful bacteria throughout the home. Some of the various illnesses people contract when they have a roach infestation include cholera, dysentery, E. coli infections, salmonellosis, and gastroenteritis. Roaches commonly spread these diseases by leaving their urine and feces throughout your home. If they leave their droppings inside your home's air ducts, the harmful bacteria could be floating around in the air you breathe. 

Step Three: Call In The Experts For Total Cockroach Elimination

Roaches are extremely difficult to eliminate if you are not knowledgeable in roach control. These sneaky bugs can hide inside your walls, underneath your floorboards, and any other hard-to-reach area of your home. A professional cockroach control specialist will have the necessary tools and experience to find, eliminate, and prevent.
