Facts About Cockroaches - Cockroach Identification - Cockroach Pictures and
There are five basic types of cockroaches that enter our homes.
Cockroach identification is very important in cockroach control.
Two products that are essential in getting rid of cockroaches that I
personally recommend are Combat Roach Killing Gel and boric acid powder
or Maxforce Magnum roach bait. To learn how to use these 2 products in
conjunction with each other find out how you can get rid of your
Types of Cockroaches That Enter Our Homes
American Cockroach The American Cockroach is probably the largest of
all five. The American cockroach has a yellow band across its head and
is probably the largest of all the common species. As an adult it is
about 1 to 1 and 1½ inches long. Its color is reddish brown with a pale
brown or yellow border. As you can see from the photo it has a yellow
band across its head. Both sexes have well developed wings but the
males wings extend beyond the abdomen.
The female American Cockroach drops her egg capsule about a day after
it is formed. This egg capsule can be dropped near a food source or
other protected area. In the southern United States this egg capsule
can be found in a moist area near decaying wood. The egg capsule may be
glued to a suitable surface with secretions from the female's mouth.
Egg capsules are formed at about 1 per week until about 15 to 90
capsules are produced. Each capsule can contain about 14 to 20 eggs.
More on the American cockroach
Smoky Brown Cockroach The smoky brown cockroach can be just a little
smaller than the American Cockroach and is a dark brown or Mahoney in
color. Smokybrown cockroaches are related to the American cockroach but
can be distinguished by their smaller size, a little over 1 inch long
and uniform mahogany color. Both males and females have wings longer
than their bodies. The nymphs have long antennae that are white at the
The smokybrown cockroach normally feeds on plant material but will feed
on almost anything other cockroaches feed on. It can be found in
gutters, attics and other areas around the home. More about the
Oriental Cockroach The Oriental cockroach is about the size of the
smokey brown cockroach or maybe just a little smaller and is a dark
brown or black. The oriental cockroach can be found in high moisture
areas such as sewers and damp basements. They are usually located below
ground level indoors. You probably won't find them on walls or high in
cupboards or on the upper floors of buildings.
Oriental cockroaches feed on all kinds of filth and other decaying
organic matter. They can live for about a month without food but only
about 2 weeks without water. In cold weather you will probably find the
migrating indoors. More about the Oriental Cockroach
German Cockroach German cockroaches can become an enormous problem if
something is not done to control them. Did you know that one German
cockroach egg capsule can contain 20 to 40 small baby cockroaches when
The German cockroach is the most persistant cockroach found in the
United States. The reason for this, and the reason this cockroach
multiplies so quickly is that the egg capsule is carried during is
complete life cycle. The German cockroach only releases the egg capsule
when the babies are ready to emerge, thus increasing the life cycle of
the German cockroach. Most other cockroaches paste their egg capsule to
a surface which makes it vulnerable to environmental conditions and
other predators thus reducing their life expectancy.
German cockroaches normally live inside as opposed to the American
cockroaches and the other large cockroaches that live outside and come
inside for food and shelter. The German cockroach is usually brought
into your home in a grocery sack or some other way. Lets say you know
someone that has German cockroaches in their home, or maybe you don't
know that they have them. They come to visit you and boom, you have a
house full of cockroaches. German cockroaches as with other types of
cockroaches can be brought in in boxes, purses, clothing, furniture
(especially used furniture) or anything else. More about the German
Brownbanded Cockroach The brownbanded cockroach is one of the smaller
cockroaches about 1/2 inch long. It is light brown and can be
distinguished from the German cockroach by to lighter transverse bands
running from one side to the other. The bands may be irregular or
broken and are more apparent on the young and females than the males.
Both the male and female brownbanded cockroach are quite active and the
adult male my fly when disturbed. All stages of the brownbanded
cockroach may jump when trying to escape. You will normally find the
brownbanded cockroach in the same buildings as the German cockroach.
Due to these two cockroaches looking almost the same,mis-identification
is possible. The female has a broader body than the male. More about
the brownbanded cockroach
Asian cockroaches are almost identical to German cockroaches and have
spread to infest the southeastern United States. The Asian cockroach
infests yards and outdoor areas around homes, unlike the German
cockroach which normally infests indoors only. The Asian cockroaches
are good flyers and will enter into homes readily, especially in the
late afternoon and early evening when you are enjoying your leisurely
Asian cockroaches are very susceptible to most pesticides. Granular
baits are very effective outdoors. Perimeter treatments of homes are
not very effective because Asian cockroaches are good flyers and can
fly 120 feet or more and infest lawns and wooded areas.
What Cockroaches Eat and Their Health Hazards
Cockroaches will eat almost anything, from book bindings, paper, food
and even human flesh. Did you know that doctors in some inner city
areas report that one-half of the foreign objects they remove from
children's ears are cockroaches and that Cockroaches have been
identified as a common cause of asthma. Health experts say inhalation
of cockroach feces and body fragments, particularly among inner-city
children, has resulted in an explosion of asthma cases in the past two
decades. It is believed that the cockroach may be a carrier for a range
of bacteria, including salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus.
