Hi, this is Silas Hoover with South Florida Pest Control, with another tip on how to detect roaches in a new home. First, you want to look for their egg sacks. It's a small reddish-brown egg sack, it looks like a Tic Tac. Next, you want to look for fecal smears. It's a little black line, looks like a teardrop. It'll be smeared down the wall. You'll also look for tiny, tiny fecal pellets, smaller than a rodent pellet. If you find any of these three things, say, for instance, in a cabinet, remove all of the items from the cabinet, and clean each item as pull it down. It's the foodstuffs on these items that are attracting the roaches. Once you've removed all the items from the cabinet, you want to wipe out the cabinet, clean it, and then follow up with some light boric acid, just in the corners of the cabinet - here, here, maybe around the hinges. And, this is Silas Hoover with another tip for you on how to detect roaches in a new home. Thanks.
