Signs of a Cockroach Infestation
Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures that are good at hiding. This makes them difficult to detect, especially if you don’t know what to look for. However, several signs can indicate you have a problem.
Common signs of a cockroach infestation include:
- Seeing live cockroaches: Cockroaches are fast and can quickly scuttle out of sight when the lights turn on. If you see live cockroaches during the day, you likely have a large infestation.
- Finding cockroach feces: Cockroach droppings look like small black specks or coffee grounds. You can usually find their droppings around their hiding spots.
- Smelling a musty odor: Cockroaches produce a musty odor that worsens as their infestation grows.
- Finding cockroach egg capsules: Cockroach egg capsules are small, reddish-brown, and oval-shaped. They are usually found in dark, hidden areas.
- Seeing shed skins: Cockroaches molt as they grow. If you find shed skins, it means their population is growing.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to take action right away. Cockroaches are prolific breeders and can quickly infest your property.

What is our service area?Our current service area is Tompkins County. We do travel outside of Tompkins county for exclusion type jobs were one way doors can be used. We do not offer trapping services outside Tompkins County.
Does Wildlife Resolutions deal with mice?Yes. Wildlife Resolutions offers several different options with controlling mice; we trap, do exclusion work and offer an ongoing bait station program.
What’s the average cost for bat exclusion?This answer is very complicated. The cost of all exclusion is based upon the amount of work. We’ve had some bat jobs at $400 and other much higher. On average most bat jobs fall between $2,500 and $4,500.
Does Wildlife Resolutions handle insect pests?We do. Currently we offer Spider, Ant, fly, cockroach, and stinging insect control. We are not offering bed bug control at this time.
What if I get a new roof?We can arrange a time to come back and check our work after the roofers are finished. If we has previously installed metal guards in soffit areas or on the ridge vent, we can remove these before the roof work is done so that they can be reinstalled once the new roof is on. This is only feasible if the new roof is the same design and material as the roof we worked on.
