If you are worried that you have some kind of bugs infesting your house, you might want to know some of the signs that you might be right and what kind of bug you might have.
If you are worried about roaches being unwelcome visitors, then you need to keep your eyes peeled for several different signs. One of them is egg cases. The dropped cases look like little grains of brown rice. If the roaches are older or bigger, the egg cases may actually be larger than a grain of rice, but they will still look similar. Another sign that you might have roaches isn't a sign, but a smell. Places with a lot of roaches tend to have a particular musky smell. It is fairly prominent, and once you smell it, you can't help but recognize it and remember it. If you notice that you have little black spots around places that have a lot of water or in tiny cracks, that's another sign that you might have cockroaches.
Termites are another problem that you might have. If you are worried about having termites, there are several signs that you can look at. One of them is little piles of frass. Frass is insect droppings, and in the case of termites, it looks like little piles of sawdust. You will generally see them around exposed wooden beams or structures. For example, if you have a wooden deck, you might see those piles around the support pilings of your deck. You may also feel some softer spots in the wood. That's because the termites eat away the fibers that give the wood its strength. If you have places that might have access to some water, that's another place that you can check. The termites like to have a place to get a drink as well as somewhere they can eat. If you have piles of lumber or firewood near the base of your house, then you should definitely check there, and move them.
If you aren't sure if you do have an infestation or not or if you aren't sure as to how to get rid of them, it's time to seek professional help. Find a residential pest control service that will come in and check your house for you. They can give you some tips on how to prevent the infestation and help you to get rid of it altogether.
