When To Call A Cockroach Exterminator

When to call a cockroach exterminator in Illinois and Indiana by Anderson Pest Solutions

It’s best to contact an exterminator at the first sign of a cockroach. If you see one cockroach in your home or business, chances are they’re not alone. As expert hiders and very quick breeders, one cockroach will quickly become a full-blown infestation. Visible cockroaches in a business are almost automatic reputation-killers  and can send your clients running! If you have a cockroach infestation in your business or home, what can be done about it? Because cockroach infestations can be overwhelming, it’s almost always best to contact a professional right away who can take care of the problem in a timely and effective matter.

Signs of a Cockroach Infestation

If you see one cockroach, chances are you have a lot more in your building. Here are some clear signs you have a cockroach problem:

  • A sighting is a strong indication of an infestation. Check out other dark and damp areas in your home that a cockroach might frequent, such as under sinks or in basements and crawl spaces.
  • If you see adult and young cockroaches alike on your property, you have an infestation.
  • Smelling a foul or musty odor is often a big indication of a major infestation.
  • Seeing a cockroach exoskeleton or its eggs is, of course, the biggest sign you have a cockroach problem.
