What to do if you find a cockroach in your home

Cockroaches are a huge nuisance. They are dirty, they contaminate food, and they tend to live in your Dover, Middleton, and Milford homes in large numbers. Because of all the negative they cause, you clearly don’t want cockroaches in your home. But, that doesn’t mean it is the end of the world if you find signs of them. All you have to do is follow the tips in this article, and your home will be rid of cockroaches for good.

Signs of cockroaches

Actually seeing a cockroach in your Dover, Middleton, or Milford home is rare. These annoying pests like to hide in dark and damp places like under sinks and in cabinets. However, you definitely know you have a cockroach problem if you spot one. Where there’s one cockroach, there’s likely many more.

Other signs of cockroaches include

  • Seeing greasy marks on the bottom of your walls or baseboards. Cockroaches tend to leave a long, greasy trail as they rub up against your walls.
  • Noticing either cockroach droppings or shed skins in their common hideouts. In addition to under sinks and in cabinets, cockroaches like to live in basements and anywhere else there is food and water.
  • A musty smell is another great way to tell that you have cockroaches. Their odor is very distinct, especially if there are large numbers living in your home.

What to do if you find a cockroach

If you see any or all of the signs above, you can assume that your Dover, Middleton, or Milford home has a cockroach problem. But, don’t panic. Even though cockroaches are hard to kill, they can be controlled. And, with the right course of action, you can even eradicate them from your home completely.

To keep cockroaches out of your home for good try the following steps.

  1. Clean off any counters or other surfaces of food and grease. Cockroaches need food to survive.
  2. They also need water, which means that any leaky pipes should be fixed as soon as possible.
  3. You may similarly want to consider ensuring that any entrances to your home are sealed. These include doors, windows, cracked roof tiles, and holes in the foundation.
  4. Keeping new cockroaches out will not solve the problem of the group you have living in your home. That is where JEM Pest Solutions comes into the picture. If you have found the sign of cockroaches and you live in the Dover, Middletown, or Milford areas, then you need to contact JEM Pest Solutions today.
