Cockroach Control

Our Cockroach Control Service

Cockroaches are an ancient group of insects. Their adaptability has allowed this group of insects to thrive while others have become extinct. Cockroaches are a nocturnal species. They hide during the day and become active at night to forage for food. Cockroaches are scavengers and feed on a variety of food and non-food items. Cockroaches have flattened, oval-shaped bodies and six legs that are covered in spines. Their long antennae are usually the same length or longer than their body. Their bodies are usually black, brown, or reddish-brown in color. Cockroach nymphs look similar to adults, but are smaller in size and are wingless.

  • German cockroaches have two black stripes running horizontally down behind their head. Their bodies are tan to light brown in color. German cockroaches are most problematic in homes and restaurants. They are the most common species found living throughout the world. German roaches are capable of flying, but rarely do.

  • American cockroaches are a large species of cockroach. They have a distinctive, yellowish-colored figure-eight pattern located behind their head. Both males and females are strong fliers.

  • Smokey brown cockroaches are closely related to American cockroaches and have a similar appearance, but are slightly smaller in size. Smokey brown cockroaches are a uniform, dark brown color. Their wings extend out beyond their bodies. Both females and males are strong fliers.


Cockroaches are not aggressive, they do not typically bite people, and they do not sting. However, cockroaches are considered dangerous pests because of the large number of bacteria, parasites, and human pathogens they carry. Dysentery, salmonellosis, gastroenteritis, and E. coli can all be spread by cockroaches. Cockroach feces, saliva, and shed skins can trigger allergies and asthma attacks. This is especially true in the case of children or people with weakened immune systems.

Cockroaches live and nest in a variety of places. Most species prefer warm, humid, and dark locations. Inside they like to hide out behind appliances, underneath cabinets, in drains, in laundry rooms, boiler rooms, and in pantry areas.

Outside roaches live on trees, underneath mulch, in gardens, in trashcans, under piles of debris, and in sewers and drains. Smokey brown cockroaches can be found gathering in doorways, decks, porches, and other areas where outdoor lighting may be found.
