How to spot a roach infestation

How to spot a roach infestation

Cockroaches are distinctly nocturnal and tend to do everything in the dark, so if you see one during the day you definitely have a serious infestation on your hands. One cockroach seen is a thousand behind the walls. 

It is best to contact professional Cockroach Control Oakville in the Greater Toronto Area to declare your home ant-free as soon as possible!

But how do you find out you have roaches before it gets serious? How can you tell your house is infested before it gets past the point of no return?

I’ll tell you. They are usually found behind sinks and stoves and refrigerators, or living in the engines of refrigerators. Here they will make their nests and breed uncontrollably to the point of overrunning your home. You can try looking for them in these places but they are likely to scurry away before you can finish moving the fridge or oven. 

The best way to find out if you have a serious roach situation on your hands is to look for droppings. They are truly tiny but they are there. You may find them under rubber mats as cockroaches can flatten their bodies and hide under surfaces without being seen. You will likely find feces wherever you store food that is accessible to them. Cupboards and drawers are a likely place to find dropping in your kitchen. 

You should also check your basement as they tend to live down their too in cracs and crevices. Make sure to check for leaky pipes and tighten them as roaches need water to survive. Wherever there is water in your home the cockroaches will gravitate to so seal up those open pipes if you want those suckers gone. 

If the situation gets too grave you can always call a professional like The Exterminator Inc, we have commercial grade insecticides and special tools for spraying in places of deep harbourage to get at the infestation quick, stop it from growing, and take it out in 3-4 weeks.
