Cockroaches love food debris, you can bet anytime you’re seeing cockroach activity there’s a chance some food was left out. They come in many sizes; German cockroaches are about an inch long while American roaches can be up to 3 inches long. There are over 4,000 species of cockroach and they have been around for over 200 million years, some fossils even date back over 350 million years. Cockroaches will typically stay in hiding during the day and come out when it’s dark, making it a litter harder to tell if you have a cockroach problem or not.
Signs You Have a Cockroach Problem in Weston
Seeing a cockroach run across the floor is a telltale sign you have some cockroaches on the property in Weston. Other signs may not be as obvious, but once you know what to look for it can become easier to identify. Seeing black pepper looking sprinkles inside cabinets and drawers will be a sign of cockroach activity, “the black pepper” is their feces. Larger cockroaches will leave behind feces looking similar to a grain of rice, but with ridges on it. Looking inside drawers and cabinets for tiny light brown to dark brown or dark red capsules is also another sign as this is their egg sac. The egg sacs are around the same size, a third of an inch, but differ in color depending on which species of cockroach is present.

At Green Wave Pest Solutions, we strive to make our customers feel as safe as possible before, during, and after treatments. That’s why we use the safest products available on the market. After inspecting and determining the correct species, we use our family friendly products to perform a thorough spray throughout the affected areas, this may be indoors and/or outdoors.

Depending on the severity of the issue we may have to use a bait application as well.
Common Types of Cockroaches We Find in Weston
American cockroaches are typically the largest, some can be up to 3 inches in length. This cockroach will occasionally fly, although it isn’t the most common. They prefer to live outdoors (will enter homes through pipes and drains) but also just like dark, humid places. They feed on decaying material and food debris. They’re also known as the palmetto bug and their egg capsules are dark in color.
The oriental cockroach likes to travel along sewers and drains. They’re slower than the average cockroach and are about an inch in length with a dark-colored, somewhat shiny body. They feast on organic matter indoors and outdoors. Female oriental cockroaches can lay up to 8 eggs in their lives and each egg sac contains 16 eggs. This species can live up to a month without water.
Cockroaches love to feast on food debris and organic matter. A dirty or cluttered home will give cockroaches plenty of food to survive and will also give them enough time to reproduce as well. Getting rid of cockroaches usually requires some form of treatment from a pest control professional, but also requires some work on the customers behalf in terms of keeping a home clean and uncluttered.
Without directly seeing a cockroach run across the kitchen floor there are a few ways to tell if there’s a cockroach infestation on the property. It may begin to smell musty inside the home, it’s always good to check cabinets and drawers for a musty smell. Be on the lookout for cockroach feces as well. Be sure to look at the corners of drawers and cabinets for tiny black specks or rice-shaped dropping with ridges. There could also be damage to wooden surfaces and/or skin casts throughout their hiding areas.
Cockroaches go through the egg and nymph stages before becoming adults, this is called incomplete metamorphosis. The eggs are called ootheca, these are very resilient egg sacs that insecticides cannot even penetrate. Once hatched, the nymph stage usually lasts for a few months to a year and they have multiple molts. Adult cockroaches don’t typically live for over a year; although the American cockroach, for example, can live up to 630 days.
