5 Signs of a German Roach Infestation

Have you found a roach in your home?

Chances are likely that it’s a German roach. If so, you might have an infestation on your hands. Here are some signs to look out for:

Daytime Roach Activity

Roaches are normally nighttime creatures. If you notice one crawling along the floor during the day, it’s likely that you have an infestation.

Strange Smells

German roaches secrete a strange mix of smelly chemicals. If you notice an oily, musty smell around your home, you may be dealing with a German cockroach situation


German cockroach droppings look similar to pepper or coffee grounds. You can typically find the excretions in drawers or on countertops. You may also notice tiny dark stains in corners throughout your home (similar to what a bled-out brown marker dot might look like).

Dead roaches

Finding a dead German roach means that his (living) friends might be nearby. You might also come across skin shedding from living roaches around your home.

An Increase In Roach Sightings In your kitchen/bathroom

German roaches thrive in moist environments where they can easily find food – this includes your kitchen and bathroom. Cockroaches can survive in your bathroom off of soap and toothpaste.
