Cockroaches Living In Our City
In our city, you’re going to encounter several cockroaches. Some are more common than others. The most common species in our area can be found below.
Locals are going to encounter German cockroaches since the most common pests in our area. At the maximum size, they can grow over half an inch. One thing that sets them apart from other cockroaches is their racing stripes. They’re found on the back of the cockroach’s head. German cockroaches breed prolifically. It is common for a female to lay as many as 40 eggs per capsule. She’ll lay as many as 5 capsules during her life. Once they’re in your home, the infestation will quickly worsen. Look under your warm appliances because these cockroaches will be hiding there.
At 2 inches, the American cockroach is one of the biggest cockroaches in our city. They’re reddish-brown and have a dark spot on the back of their head. Besides being the largest common cockroach, it can fly. Unfortunately, this is a troubling combination for locals. American cockroaches approach properties that have busted sewer pipes and dried plumbing traps. It takes them a long time to mature so it can take a while for them to infest your dwelling.
Pennsylvania Wood Cockroaches
Although they belong to the same species, male and female Pennsylvania wood cockroaches are immensely different. The females only reach three-quarters of an inch while the males are larger. They’re native to the Eastern United States but can often be found in our area. They tend to approach homes with wood shingles, blocked gutters, and woodpiles. The good news is that they’re not pests often.
Spotted Mediterranean Cockroaches
The Spotted Mediterranean Cockroach is one of the smallest cockroaches in our area. It is only a third of an inch. Nevertheless, an infestation can create a big problem. These cockroaches are native to Europe although they’ve been in the United States for a long time. They may enter homes, but they usually don’t reproduce inside.
Female oriental cockroaches are smaller than males and they never develop wings. Adults can grow over an inch. Oriental cockroaches have a lot in common with American cockroaches. Both like infesting sewer systems and old buildings in downtown areas. The primary difference is that oriental cockroaches are often found out in cold weather. They’ll stay outside and eat garbage and feces.
Smokey Brown Cockroaches
The smokey brown cockroach is an inch and a half at the maximum. They’re commonly found in our area. They’re reddish-brown with a shiny hue. They often travel in boxes and shipping containers. They’re one color so they’re unique from American cockroaches.
Surinam cockroaches are all female. The species will not have male cockroaches. They’re almost an inch in length and prefer warm weather. Therefore, it is uncommon for Surinam cockroaches to travel too far north. Since all these cockroaches are female, they’re going to give live birth once the eggs have hatched.
Brown-banded cockroaches are half an inch. In terms of color, they’re either light brown or tan. They are often mistaken for the German cockroach since both are similar in appearance. However, you can easily spot the difference because the German cockroach has racing stripes. The brown-banded cockroach does not.
Why Are they In Your Home?
Why are cockroaches on your property and in your home? Ultimately, you can’t find out until you identify the species. After you’ve done that, you’ll have a much better idea. Cockroaches may enter a home to search for food and warmth. Others may be looking for a way to sneak into the nearby sewer system.
