Cockroach Removal

There are many different types of cockroaches.  Here are some of the most common type of cockroaches found in our area:

German Cockroach:  The German Cockroach is by far the most common cockroach found in our area.  You will find German cockroaches in kitchens and bathrooms.  They are one-half inch in size with a bronze color.  German Cockroaches avoid light and spend 75% of their time hiding in crack and crevices.  German cockroaches only come out of hiding for food or to mate and it’s mainly in darkness.  Their hiding places are usually within 10 feet if their food source. German cockroaches reproduce rapidly and they prefer to live with their own-kind.  Large numbers of prime hiding spots for the German Cockroach are in the kitchen under stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers, and in walls or cabinet voids. When German Cockroaches are in non-food areas like a bedroom, this may mean there is a heavy infestation.

American Cockroach:  The American Cockroach is a lager species that can get up to be two inches long.  American Cockroaches are less common in homes than the German cockroach but can be found in sewers, basements, and commercial food establishments (where food is prepared or processed).

Brown Banded Cockroach: The brown banded cockroach is sometimes found indoors as it prefers warmer temperatures.  The warmth of electronics, motor housings, lighting fixtures and ceilings is a draw for the brown banded cockroach. This cockroach prefers to live in bedrooms, furniture, and closets – particularly on high shelves.

Oriental Cockroach:  The Oriental cockroach, also known as the water bug of basements, sewers, garages and crawl spaces underneath houses. It loves the cooler and damp areas.  The oriental cockroach is also found outdoors around foundations hiding in leaves and mulch where it can survive winter months.
