American Cockroach


CHARACTERISTICS
Size:
Up to 2 inches long.
 
Color:
Reddish brown.
This insect may be recognized by a yellow "figure-8" pattern on the shield at the front of its body.

Behaviour

Like all cockroaches, it is omnivorous and will eat virtually anything people will and many things we won't.

Habitat

This cockroach thrives in warm, damp environments, such as sewers, steam tunnels, basements, crawl spaces, and boiler rooms. In southern states, it will also be found living and breeding outdoors.

Tips for Control

The key to control is to find and treat these sources directly. In many cases, the services of a professional company, such as Diamond Pest Control, are required to achieve long-term relief. In southern states where this cockroach lives outdoors, successful control involves treating the attic, crawl space, and exterior cracks in the home and finding and treating likely cockroach harborages over the entire property.
