Nobody likes discovering a roach, or worst, a roach infestation in their home. This is for many reasons but the biggest reason being they are unsanitary pests that frequently invade unsanitary areas before invading your own home.
They contaminate every surface they crawl upon including your kitchen food and utensils. They love to find stacks of cardboard or trash to take shelter in so the first process of taking care of cockroaches is eliminating these hiding spaces.
The most common types of cockroaches in Orange include:
- German cockroach
- American cockroach
There are other types that you might have encounter but the above are the kinds we have dealt with personally in the Orange area.
German roaches are sometimes confused with Asian cockroaches. Their type depends a lot on humans. They cannot survive in places where there is less human or human activity. Cold temperature is most likely the major factor that is limiting their activities. Some studies state that they cannot survive in a house without central heating.
German roaches have a light brown color with two dark stripes located on their backs. They are most likely to be seen in kitchen environments and bathrooms. Fecal droppings are also expected in areas infested by the said pest. A mild and musty odor may also be present in areas affected.
Also known as “water bug“. They are the most problematic and have the most potential for becoming a very persistent pest. They are the most common roach that is found on city sewer systems and drain pipes. They only move indoors once they experience food or supply shortage or a change in climate.
The most common sign of an American cockroach is its fecal droppings. Their droppings are found in dim areas. Sometimes, these droppings can be mistaken as mouse droppings which is why it is important to contact our pest control experts for an inspection right away. Another sign of their infestation is the presence of egg capsules. Their egg capsules are about 8 mm long and dark-colored. This are sometimes glued near food surfaces like kitchens and also behind appliances.
