I think I have cockroaches but I’m not sure what to look for. I don’t see any during the day but I am finding little specs of what looks like dirt on my counter tops beneath my pantry. I think they might be in there but I’m not sure. Is there some kind of roach bait or trap I can use to see?
There are many signs of cockroaches when they are active in an area. Typically these signs can be seen in the form of dirt like specs that will accumulate in corners where they are hiding or living. The dirt is usually a dark brown, almost black, and very small, like the size of a poppy seed or smaller. Usually there will be a lot of these signs around in the corners of the cabinet up high or behind the door in the hinges. Set out one of our Roach Traps as seen in our Cockroach Control Article and it will catch any that are active which will let you know for sure if you can’t find enough signs to confirm you do indeed have a problem. I would say this would be best before you start treating without knowing just what is leaving this mess around.
