They prefer to be in warm humid areas and especially enjoy coming out after heavy rain. American roaches tend to live outdoors under mulch and in sewer systems before they make their way into your home. They are some of the filthiest pests and will contaminate anything they touch.

Signs of an Infestation

There are a few signs you should look out for if you believe you have an American roach infestation. These pests are extremely fast reproducers so as soon as you see a handful of these roaches in your home, it’s best you take immediate action. The first thing you should do is to look in dark and hard to reach areas. If you see egg capsules that are dark in color or droppings, this is the number one sign that you have roaches living amongst you. Also, if you begin to smell something musty lingering around your home, this is another sign of an infestation. Roaches produce a chemical that is released and it will give off a smell. Make sure you keep darker areas such as your cupboards, garage and basement clutter free to reduce your chances of an infestation.
