Comprehensive Cockroach Species Management in Your Home

There are many different species of cockroaches in the world, and here at Pest & Termite Consultants, our cockroach control services can be tailored to deal with any of them you might have at your Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina home. Here are the most common species we can identify and deal with:

  • German– This species of cockroach has a light brown to tan color with two darker stripes along the back. These creatures particularly enjoy spaces that are nice and warm with a bit of humidity, which means they are most commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms. Many people suffer from allergic reactions and can become ill from German cockroaches.
  • American– American cockroaches have a unique reddish-brown color. On the back of their head, you’ll notice a yellowish figure 8 shape. This species is most fond of basements and sewers. As the largest cockroach to enter residences, it is one that creates the most displeasure. While they can survive at lower temperatures, they are the most active if your home is warmer than 70 degrees.American Cockroach
  • Smoky Brown– This species is a tad smaller than the American cockroach species and is a dark mahogany color. Their wings are larger than the body segment, which makes both males and females proficient fliers. They are drawn to light as nocturnal creatures. They are often found in attics, crawlspaces, and gutters, and will enter the house through vents or plumbing.Smokey Brown Cockroaches
  • Brown banded– Living up to its name, this species of cockroach is brown with pronounced banding on its wings. They are unlike other species in that they prefer drier locations, such as under furniture where they hide their egg cases and in higher cabinets where moisture is less likely. You can easily tell the male of this species because their wings are larger than the female’s.Brown Banded Cockroach
  • Oriental– Oriental cockroaches are one of the most difficult for cockroach control professionals to deal with. They are also considered the dirtiest ones, as they are found in sewers and can gain entrance to your home through the drains. They are also called “water bugs” because of this. They are very dark in color and have a shiny appearance. They are most commonly found in crawlspaces and basements, as well as in outdoor firewood and leaf piles.
