Cockroach Infestation Signs
Unusual smell - An established cockroach infestation produces a lingering and unpleasant odour that taints items they contact.
Cockroach droppings - If little water is available cockroaches will produce brown/black cylindrical droppings, approx. 2mm long.
Smear marks - If water is abundant cockroaches will produce brown and irregular shaped smear marks. Check for marks on horizontal surfaces and at wall-floor junctions where cockroaches scuttle.
Shed skin - Cockroaches shed ‘cast nymphal ‘skins 5-8 times as they mature to adults. These are usually found close to where they are sheltering.
