Identifying cockroach infestation
It’s important to note that there are different species of cockroaches—but only a few of these species are regarded to be pests. Here are 5 different types of cockroach species that are known to be prevalent in the US.
- American cockroaches
- Brown-banded cockroaches
- German cockroaches
- Oriental cockroaches
- Smoky-brown cockroaches
Cockroaches are nocturnal by nature, which means they normally emerge when it’s dark in search of food and water. When you notice roaches in light, it’s evidence that your home has a large infestation, or there is one in the making.
The following is the common evidence of cockroach infestation:
- Cockroach feces – roaches normally leave behind lots of visible droppings, which resemble specks of pepper, oval pellets, coffee grounds, and brown stains.
- Cockroach eggs – most of the US species normally produce oothecae (egg casings), which can carry up to 20 eggs. These casings can either be found in furniture, books, and cracks of walls. German roaches, on the other hand, carry their oothecae as they travel. The German roach normally stays in physical contact with the casing until the eggs hatch. One casing can carry up to 50 eggs.
- Cockroach odor – roaches normally produce a musty, oily scent, that worsens as the infestations grow bigger.

FAQs about our cockroach control and treatment services
- How effective is DIY cockroach control?
Almost all “heavy-duty” cockroach control and treatment methods have some form of environmental effects. However, some DIY cockroach control methods are environmentally safe, and they include:
- Installed traps – these include special feeding mixtures and sticky flypaper among other methods
- Custom solutions – these include shallow trays of plaster of Paris mixed with icing sugar, sprinkled borax powder, as well as small containers of oil and water
Although these DIY methods will kill a few roaches, they cannot solve your cockroach infestation problem. That’s the reason why we recommend people to call experts in pest management to schedule cockroach inspection.
- Are roaches harmful?
Although roaches don’t bite or inflict any physical pain, they can be indeed harmful to your health. These insects carry various disease-causing bacteria. In addition to that, they leave behind hair, feces, as a well as dead skin, which mostly leads to food contamination, something that can make a person sick. Moreover, the odor emitted by roaches can cause problems for asthmatic people.

German roaches are known as the most fertile breeders among all other cockroaches, which make it hard when it comes to pest control and management. Thus, DIY methods are not effective in dealing with these roaches. German cockroaches breed fast and can hide anywhere, as long as there are food and moisture. Off the shelve pest control products cannot deal with German infestation.
American cockroaches, on the other hand, are masters at thriving in crawl spaces, basements, as well as other damp and warm environment—and this makes it hard to eliminate American roaches. It’s only the trained pest control experts who know how to deal with these pests. Effective control of American cockroaches requires treatment of any area surrounding your property, which might provide harborage for these cockroaches.
