Cockroaches — this stomach-turning, disease-spreading, eons-old insect species are some of the most dreaded and, unfortunately, common household pests in the world.

Accordingly, the minute you notice any cockroaches hanging around your home or business, reach out to Champion Termite and Pest Control, Inc. for effective and affordable pest control services from our experienced cockroach exterminators!

When To Call A Cockroach Exterminator

As a rule of thumb, the best time to call a cockroach exterminator is the moment you notice a cockroach in your home or business. Obviously, there’s always a chance a single cockroach merely strayed from its nest and onto your property, but it’s far more likely others are lurking around your property. It is easiest to treat cockroaches while infestations are still in the early stages, so don’t hesitate to schedule a cockroach inspection if you notice one of these creepy crawlies hanging around your property. Our roach exterminators offer a free initial property inspection so home and business owners can catch budding infestations early and schedule the services they need to keep their property pest-free!

Signs Of A Cockroach Infestation

Cockroaches are nocturnal insects that tend to try and stay out of sight, making their way around kitchens in the dead of night and slinking back into their hiding places come morning time. Unfortunately, these sneaky habits can make it challenging for property owners to recognize when a cockroach infestation is developing. Accordingly, home and business owners should watch for these telltale signs of a cockroach infestation around their property.

  • Oval-shaped egg cases behind furniture
  • Cockroach droppings resembling coffee grounds
  • An unusual, musty odor
  • Chew marks on food packaging, leather furniture, and books
  • Dark brown smear marks on walls and baseboards
  • Shed cockroach skins
