  3. Egg capsules around moisture sources
  4. Droppings in large amounts
  5. Smear or smudge marks along horizontal surfaces

Give Westfall's Lawn and Pest a call right away if any of these signs look (or smell) familiar to you. 

The Health Hazards Roaches Bring Into Your Home

Have you ever heard of dysentery, gastroenteritis, listeriosis, cholera, salmonellosis, or campylobacteriosis? Assuming you haven't, these are infections you can contract from exposure to cockroaches, which is why you don't want them running rampant throughout your home. These "unhygienic scavengers," as the World Health Organization (WHO) describes them, carry a wide array of harmful pathogen and diseases, as mentioned above, which can make you and your family extraordinarily sick. Roaches can also spread bacteria, such as staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, and Streptococcus. If you want to maintain the health and safety of every household member, reach out to a reputable pest management company for highly reliable and professional cockroach control.

How And Why Roaches Find Their Way Into Your Home

When you're hungry, you search for food where it's plentiful, which is usually in your fridge or pantry. Cockroaches do the same thing, but at the expense of your health, security, and comfort. These intrusive insects have flattened bodies that allow them to slip into the narrowest crack or crevice in your home's structure. After they've gained entry, they'll find the darkest and most inaccessible places to hide, like behind or under kitchen appliances. At night, they'll emerge to forage for food. Even though cockroaches will feast on all the foods you and your family enjoy, they'll also dine on a wide range of inedible items, such as soap, hair, glue, toothpaste, feces, leather, and even their shed skins.

Therefore, cleaning your home regularly and filling in apparent breaches with a silicon-based caulk or similar substance is essential. Don't leave dirty dishes in the sink or allow your trash to fill up without adequately removing it. For more information on how to deter cockroaches, consult with your local past elimination company.
