Facts about the American Cockroach
The American Cockroach has a reddish brown coloration and they are easily recognized by a yellow colored band that outlines the area behind their heads. This specific species of cockroach is huge! That’s right, the American Cockroach adult can grow up to 3 inches long and to top it off, are also able to fly with wings that develop in adulthood. Usually, American Cockroaches live outside in damp places like flowerbeds and they are notorious for living in sewer systems here in SoCal.
If American Cockroaches are perfectly fine living outdoors, why do they come into peoples homes? Well, like most insects, the American Cockroach is in constant search of food and water. The American Cockroach is even more likely to enter people’s homes in drier climates, which unfortunately for us OC residents is almost all year round.
Another annoying fact about American Cockroaches is that they will eat practically anything from algae to pet food, so keeping both your indoor and outdoor area clean is a must for preventing American Cockroach infestation.
American Cockroach Infestation
After finding their way inside a home, the American Cockroach is not alone for long. Cockroaches have an ability to emit an odor which is called an “aggregation pheromone” which will soon attract other cockroaches. With a growing population, people can smell this as well and it is usually described as a musty.
The most common hiding places for American Cockroaches include bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. To help prevent American Cockroach infestation, block their entry points into the home by repairing any structural damage and seal all cracks and holes in doors and windows. Remember to also remove any debris around your home and seal all food in storage containers and remove all water sources that you can find.
