American Cockroach Facts
American cockroaches are around 3 inches in length and have a red-brown color to them with a yellowing band behind their heads.
The American cockroach reproduces by laying egg casings. The female cockroach will lay these capsule-like egg casing in a warm and humid area with each one of the casings containing around 16 eggs within. The eggs hatch and the American cockroaches grow into adults in about 5 months.
Unlike the German cockroach, the American cockroach uses its pair of wings to fly and likes to live outdoors – typically in warm, damp areas like under mulch and in the sewer. They eat leaves, fungi, algae, and other smaller insects outdoors.
American cockroaches do unfortunately enter the home to find food and water and typically reside in garages, basements, bathrooms, and kitchens. When indoors, they eat on left over crumbs and pet food.
American Cockroach Infestation?
If you suspect that you are infested with American cockroaches then read on. Look for American cockroach droppings (which look like small mouse droppings but with blunt ends) in dark places where they might hide. Another idea is to look for left behind egg capsules which are reddish brown in color and are usually left in dark places, such as under or behind appliances. Lastly, if there are a large number of American cockroaches present, sometimes you can smell the musty odor that American cockroaches emit to stay together in groups.
An American cockroach infestation is nothing to take lightly as they are insects riddled with germs that are known to spread disease and contaminate food. Things that you can do on your own to reduce American cockroach infestation include thoroughly cleaning up all scraps of left-over and spilled foods and liquids, sealing cracks and rips in screen doors and windows, vacuuming often, and cleaning up hiding places such as cardboard boxes and papers.
Since American cockroaches are disease infested creatures and reproduce quickly, it is important to call professionals at Preferred Pest Control to help you get them out of your home or building. We assess the situation, locate the source of the American cockroach problem, and implement customized solutions that include baits, traps, insecticides, and growth regulators.
