Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures; they remain in hiding during the day. But, they can be seen on the kitchen counters or floor, in the sink and on the dining table when one switches on the light at night. The appearance of one (or more) in broad daylight could indicate an infestation. It could mean, they have escalated to a critical level, their nests are full, and some are being pushed out. Whether you have seen several roaches or just one, calling a professional should be your top priority.

Below are more signs that indicate cockroaches are in your home

Signs of Cockroaches

Cockroach droppings

A significant amount of cockroach droppings often indicates you have a cockroach infestation. The floor-wall junctions and horizontal surfaces are the most common places to find the droppings, which are black or dark brown in coloration and cylindrical or irregular in shape.

Egg casings

Cockroach egg casings, also known as oothecae, are oval-shaped and dark in color. If you spot roach egg casings and cast skins on dishes, plates, bowls or other cutlery which have not been used for some time, you might have an invasion. These eggs can also be found in cracks or between books.

Musty smell

One of the main signs that cockroaches exist and maybe reproducing within your home is smelling the unpleasant odor produced by cockroaches. The scent is usually a musty or oily odor that is mildly offensive.
