How Do You Know You Have an Infestation?
Cockroaches tend to stay out of sight. They only come out at night or lurk in the shadows. If you see a cockroach during the day, you probably have an infestation. Cockroach droppings look like spilled coffee grounds. The more droppings you see, the greater your infestation.
Some cockroaches give off a distinct odor. If you find dead cockroaches or cockroach droppings and your home smells musty or oily, you should call a cockroach exterminator.
Why Is a Cockroach Infestation Dangerous?
Cockroaches look, sound, and smell disgusting. But their shed exoskeletons also cause allergic reactions, including childhood asthma. While cockroaches help the environment by breaking down decomposing material, they contaminate your food when they invade your home.
How Many Types of Cockroaches Are There?
While there are six types of cockroaches in North America, Canada only have German cockroach. German cockroaches live in pantries, restaurants, and other food establishments. Usually, they don’t enter the room from the outdoors—they’re transported to your building from an infested area via boxes and equipment.
At Lex-TemrinateurJM, we employ the following tactic:
We leave gel-formulated bait for German cockroaches. This method takes patience and requires a clean building, free of competing pests that could eat the bait instead.
You can also follow these techniques to avoid cockroach infestations in the future:
- Check that grocery bags and boxes don’t carry cockroaches into your home.
- Keep your plumbing lines in good repair.
- Plug and seal drains you use irregularly.
- Install door sweeps.
- Install small mesh screens around your home’s foundation.
- These techniques will keep cockroaches and other pests out and your food, home, and family safe.
