For many homeowners, roaches are an unpleasant, but somewhat inevitable discovery. Roaches will eat almost anything, including paper, plastics, animal matter, and fabrics. These pests are also known to carry a variety of pathogens and can pose serious health risks if not treated swiftly. Cockroaches are nocturnal insects and favor dark, moist environments like basements and crawl spaces. They hide well and can move extremely quickly so they can be difficult to identify.
If you notice multiple of the following telltale signs of cockroaches, it’s time to contact a professional pest control company to address a potential infestation.
