Signs of a Cockroach Infestation:
1. homeowners will see the fast-moving insects themselves usually fleeing to dark areas.
2. Cockroaches leave behind droppings in the dim areas in which they hide. These small droppings are blunt on the ends and have ridges on the sides. They are often mistaken for mouse droppings, so it’s important to contact a licensed pest control professional for proper identification. -
3. Another sign of an American cockroach infestation is the presence of egg capsules, which are about 8 mm long and dark-colored. Egg capsules are sometimes glued to a surface near food sources, and can be found in basements, laundry rooms and kitchens, as well as behind appliances or underneath cabinets. -
4. Cockroach will produce a pheromone that some people describe as having a “musty” smell. People with sensitive noses may notice this odor around the house.

So yesterday we were discussing how when we used to get in the car we would always come home to a windscreen and grill of dead insects... that doesn’t happen anymore 😳apparently we have lost over 40% of our insect populations and it’s on a steady decline.... I know its just another number to add to all the other numbers we encounter through the day... but this is serious. Insects-invertebrates carry out so many functions that make life possible-they are the linchpins of the living world.
More than that, I know often when we talk about life we talk in relation to how we need them, most often because it’s a compelling motive but maybe they have a right to life just as much as we do.
Many reasons can be cited for the decline, for me; let’s stop using chemicals that are designed to kill them on our food supply..seems logical🙄.
This cute jumping spider is not considered a threat to humans, however, there are three dangerous spiders that do invade Las Vegas valley homes.
