Cockroach Identification & Prevention

Frequently Asked Questions About Cockroaches

What are cockroaches?

Cockroaches are broad oval-shaped insects; most are brown, black, or reddish-brown. Cockroaches have wings, but not all species fly. We can also identify these pests by their long, thin antennae, small heads, and six spiny legs.

In our region, the most common types of cockroaches that find their way into our outdoor and indoor spaces include American, German, Turkestan, and oriental cockroaches. Cockroaches are generally attracted to moisture, warmth, and food. Resilient and adaptable, cockroaches can be successful almost anywhere, including our Elk Grove homes.

Are Cockroaches Dangerous?

Cockroaches trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks and spread harmful bacteria and pathogens. They are not pests you want to share your house with. Additionally, these pests can damage personal belongings by chewing holes in them and staining walls and upholstery with their excrement. As cockroaches forage for food, they contaminate surfaces, food, utensils, dishes, and more with bacteria and pathogens that can make you and your family ill.

Why do I have a cockroach problem?

Cockroaches can become very problematic because once they find a way into your home and establish themselves, they are nearly impossible to get rid of without professional help. It is essential to know that if you find a cockroach in your house, many more are hiding.

Cockroaches get into our homes by coming in through spaces in exterior walls, windows, and doors. They can also enter through vents and drains. Moisture and food odors are the main attractants of cockroaches.

These pests can also enter our homes more passively by hitchhiking inside on various things. When they hide in a box or inside secondhand items like used furniture or appliances, they move from one structure to another.
