How Do You Find a Cockroach Nest?

Aside from bed bugs and fleas, cockroaches are definitely one of the nastiest pests to share your space with, and even worse than this, the longer they hang around, the worse the infestation gets, making it even more difficult to get rid of them’

If you’ve walked into the kitchen at night and turned the light on, catching sight of these little monsters scuttling into their hiding places, you may well be asking the question; how do you find a cockroach nest?

Another good question would be; do you really want to find the nest? Isn’t it a better idea to call on pest control professionals like Pest Control Pros West Coast, and let them do what you can’t?

Getting rid of cockroaches with insecticide sprays bought at the local supermarket or hardware store is a health risk for you, your family, small children, the elderly and pets, and they don’t work all that well.

It’s a temporary measure that simply kills what you can see, because what you can’t see is how big the cockroach nest is, the one that’s out of sight!

How do you find a cockroach nest?

Ever noticed droppings on the floor that look like black pepper or ground coffee? Well, unless you know you’ve spilled either, you can be certain that these are cockroach fecal droppings. 

You might find a dead cockroach here and there occasionally, or egg casings, which will mostly be found in the corners of kitchen cupboards. 

With our extensive pest control experience, our team at Pest Control Pros can even tell you that cockroaches give off a strong odor if you have the bad luck of having a severe infestation.

Like the slippery creatures they are, cockroaches love moist, dark and warm places. Don’t be surprised to find them in your bathroom or in your cupboard. Even your electrical box isn’t safe from these pests, and they are quite happy in any drain or sewer.

As a side note – did you know that in general, a cockroach’s lifespan is around a year, however, in that year, a female can produce between 200-300 cockroaches!

You’ll more than likely never find the actual nest, unless you’re really brave and really determined, however, our specialist pest control team at Pest Control Pros West Coast would rather make it easy on you, and bring the infestation to a complete halt!
