How To Tell If Your Gilbert Home Has A Cockroach Problem

If you’re seeing cockroaches skittering around inside your Gilbert residence, you may wonder, “Why do I need tips to help me figure out whether or not I have a cockroach problem?” This section is not for you. If you’re seeing roaches, it is too late to address your cockroach problem easily. The appearance of even a single roach inside a man-made structure is evidence of a mature infestation.

What is the behavior of a cockroach

Cockroaches don’t prefer to be seen. If you have started seeing roaches, it is likely due to the fact that the roaches in your home have grown a large population and individual roaches must take risks in order to compete for food. This will cause them to be active during the day and to make appearances in the open. We hope you detect cockroaches long before this occurs.

Here are a few tips to help you uncover a cockroach infestation if you have not seen roaches yet:

  • Look in the cabinets under your kitchen and bathroom sinks. Cockroaches are commonly found in these humid locations. Inspect surfaces for black feces, shed skins, and the presence of oothecae (egg cases).
  • Inspect your attic for cockroach feces, skins, and oothecae.
  • Look behind and underneath appliances.
  • Use your nose to detect cockroaches. Some describe the pheromone scent of roaches as being oily and musty.
  • Use a flashlight to inspect voids, such as the cabinet under a jetted tub.
