Roaches Can Cause Allergic Reactions
An often unknown sign that you have cockroaches in your home is the onset of allergies. A roach’s feces and exoskeleton have been known to cause reactions in people that include stuffy nose, wheezing, and red eyes. You can certainly imagine that many homeowners will just assume they are under the weather due to other circumstances, but don’t rule out roaches.
Roach Feces is Visible
Roaches, like all animals, leave behind droppings although the excrement of these creatures is not always recognizable and depending on the type, may look different. In some cases it could look like grains of pepper. In others, small, dark, grains of rice may be a description. Nonetheless, if you see dust and debris that looks abnormal in your Cleveland home, it may just be roaches.
