3 Signs of a Cockroach Problem
For the most part, cockroaches will try to stay out of sight and out of daylight. For this reason, seeing a roach is often a bad sign there are many more nearby. The most common signs of a cockroach infestation are:
- Foul odors. Some roach species are known to emit a musty, unpleasant odor that lingers and gets worse as an infestation worsens.
- Egg cases/skins. Ootheca are brown casings that house up to 50 eggs and can be found before or after the eggs hatch in serious infestations.
- Droppings. Resembling anything from tiny pepper specks to miniature pellets, a large amount of feces is a clear indicator of a cockroach problem.
