Four Signs Of A Cockroach Infestation In Your Chickasaw Home

Cockroaches are nocturnal and tend to live in areas of your home that are dark and unused. Because of this, they aren’t easily spotted. You could have a cockroach infestation in your home without ever seeing a live roach. Here are four signs of a cockroach infestation that you should be on the lookout for in your home:

  1. Smear marks: These marks are dark and irregularly shaped. Roaches leave them along walls and baseboards as they travel between their home and food source.

  2. Odor: Roaches produce a pheromone that can make your home smell musty. This odor is most noticeable to people with sensitive noses.

  3. Shed skin: Roaches molt between five and eight time before they reach maturity, leaving their shed skin behind. These skins are light brown, cockroach shaped, and usually found in common cockroach habitats like cabinets and pantries.

  4. Droppings: Roach droppings look like mouse droppings. They have blunt edges with ridges on the side.

If you see any of these signs, contact us immediately. We can develop a pest control plan that will eliminate roaches in your home and keep them from coming back.

Mosquitoes: Practical Advice For Chickasaw Homeowners

If you’ve lived in Chickasaw for any amount of time, you’ve probably had an issue with mosquitoes. They are the uninvited guest at cookouts, tailgates, and many other outdoor activities. Mosquitoes can drive you crazy, and force even the best outdoor events inside. The good news is there are some things you can do to control mosquitoes around your property.

Mosquito larvae need water to develop, so the most important step to controlling mosquitoes is eliminating standing water around your property. Some areas where standing water may collect that you should pay particular attention to include:

  • Pool covers

  • Empty tires

  • Flower pots

  • Kiddie pools

  • Birdbaths

Eliminating standing water in these and other items around your yard can drastically reduce the mosquito population.

Here are some other tips that can help keep mosquitoes away and limit your exposure:

  • Avoid outdoor activities around dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

  • Use fans outdoors to reduce mosquitoes at outdoor gatherings.

  • Avoid wearing dark-colored clothing and perfume or cologne, which attracts mosquitoes.

  • If you are going to be outside during times when mosquitoes are active, wear long sleeves and use insect repellent.

You can also contact us for professional mosquito treatments, which are guaranteed to limit the mosquito population around your home and property.
