Getting a roach treatment? Please read this: How to Prepare – Roach Treatment

Roaches are among the most common insects. Their sizes vary considerably; some species are up to several inches long. They are one of the most adaptable and successful insects groups. Their presence is in nearly every part of the world. Roaches produce an odorous secretion, these secretions may result in a characteristic odor in the general region of the infestation. Disease-producing organisms such as bacteria have been found on roach’s bodies.

General Cockroach Biology and Behavior

German Roaches

The German roach is the most economically important urban pest. They are by the most common and important species infesting our homes and institutions.

Physical Characteristics

The German roach is a general feeder, but is particularly attracted to fermented foods and beverage residues found in kitchens. Infestations are sometimes found in areas not generally suspected of German roaches; for example, dresser drawers in bedrooms. When they are found scattered through non-food areas of a home or building, it is usually caused by a very heavy infestation.

American Roaches

The American roach is commonly known as the water bug, flying water bug and, the palmetto bug. It is the largest of the common species.

Physical Characteristics

American roaches feed on a variety of foods, but decaying organic matter seems to be preferred. The adults can survive two or three months without food, only about a month without water.

Brown-Banded Roach

This is one of the smaller roaches, rarely being more than 1/2 inch long. It is light brown and can be readily distinguished from the German roach by the presence of two lighter, transverse bands running from one side to the other across the base of the wings and abdomen in adults, and in the same spot on the young.

Physical Characteristics

When making an inspection for brown-banded roaches, no room should be left uninspected, nor should any piece of furniture if its construction provides shelter. They are frequently transported in furniture, and will rapidly spread throughout an entire home or building.

Method of Control

To exterminate roaches, Roberts Termite and Pest Control uses several methods. These include clean-out methods, baiting methods or dusting. Clean-out procedures involve using a residual pesticide. These are sprayed on baseboards, underneath and behind appliances and in other areas where roaches frequent. When dealing with a severe infestation, a residual pesticide alone will not exterminate the entire roach population. Using professional aerosols and dusts enables Roberts to inject pesticides into tiny areas where your target pests are hiding. Baiting methods enables us to apply materials into cracks and crevices, appliances, in the corner of cabinets or any place where we suspect roaches are hiding.
