Roaches, often up to 2 inches long, are unappealing and carriers of diseases. Commonly found in unsanitary areas, they are characterized by their six legs and long antennae. Some roaches have wings, but most cannot fly. Their presence is more than an annoyance; it's a health concern.

Identifying Roach Infestation: Key Signs

  1. Feces: These pests leave behind feces resembling brown coffee grounds, especially in kitchen areas like cabinets, pantries, and appliances.
  2. Eggs: Look for brown, oblong sacs, possibly containing up to 50 eggs, hidden in cracks and crevices.
  3. Odor: A significant infestation often produces a pungent, musty smell.
