Signs Of a Cockroach Infestation

Cockroaches are nocturnal insects that prefer dark, moist places to hide and breed. Spotting a cockroach during the day might indicate an infestation. Some signs might warn homeowners of a possible cockroach infestation even when they don’t see the bugs directly.

Homeowners can usually spot cockroach feces during an infestation. Smaller bugs will produce feces resembling coffee grounds or black pepper, while larger ones expel cylindrical droppings. The more droppings around the house, the worse the infestation.

Some cockroach species emit an unpleasant smell. In case of an extensive infestation, household residents will smell an oily or musty odor. Dead cockroaches and oval-shaped eggs may be visible around the house. Eggs are often hidden behind the furniture and between books.

Health Dangers Of a Cockroach Infestation


Cockroaches are known to cause allergies and asthma in humans. They carry allergens on their bodies that can be transferred to humans, leading to an allergic reaction when inhaled or touched. These allergens can also become airborne and linger in the air for extended periods, making them difficult to avoid.

Disease Transmission

Cockroaches are known carriers of bacteria that cause food poisoning and other serious illnesses such as dysentery and cholera. Additionally, they can spread certain viruses and protozoa, such as salmonella and shigella. In some cases, cockroaches have even been linked to the spread of certain respiratory illnesses, such as pneumonia and bronchitis.

Food Contamination

Cockroaches can contaminate food with their waste products, leading to food poisoning if ingested by humans or pets. They also carry disease-causing bacteria on their bodies, which can result in food contamination if they come into contact with food items stored in cupboards or pantries.

Spread Of Parasites

While cockroaches aren’t known to be carriers of parasites themselves, they are known to transport parasitic eggs on their bodies. Should this happen, the eggs can hatch inside a home or business, leading to potential infestations of parasites such as pinworms or tapeworms.

Indoor Air Pollution

When cockroaches feed on various materials found indoors, they produce particles containing proteins that become airborne when disturbed, thus adversely affecting the air quality in a room or house.
