Cockroaches 101

The cockroach is more than just an annoying pest that can survive freezing temperatures and a week without its head.

Cockroaches also carry six kinds off parasitic worms along with seven other human pathogens.

In addition to this there’s also a risk of IBS discomfort due in part because its etiological agent causes abdominal cramps and vomiting among other things.

This means taking preventative measures such as hiring licensed professionals who will be able identify any intruders before they get inside and recommend treatment courses based on what’s best for both human health along with preserving structural integrity.

American Roaches have been reported from everywhere across our country including all 50 states plus Hawaii! They’re also present around The Philippines which means this pest might come visit you if there are any travels going down soon (or not). The American cockroach is one of the most common insects in North America. They can be found anywhere there’s food, water and shelter- especially around pipes or drains where their favorite pastimes are eating away at your drain cleaner! These pesky bugs will also congregate inside homes if left unchecked by natural disasters like floods; this makes them all too easy for us humans to control with proper pest control methods.

Brown-Banded Cockroach

Brown-banded cockroaches are a brown color with pronounced banding across their wings. They were first discovered in America by 103 year old Olin Signs vote, who found them while he walked home from work one day! These pesky bugs now live all over our country due to its ability for tuned mobility between farms and cities which means they can easily move around food sources like humans do – not that we’re telling you anything new here :). Habitat: Brown-banded cockroaches tend to prefer warmer, drier locations than other urban pests such as German and/or house spiders. They can be found in kitchen cabinets or bathrooms along with behind picture frames; this species often hides their egg cases underneath furniture too! Unique Facts: The male’s wings are larger than the female’s so they’ll need different hiding places when it comes time for breeding – look out below!

German Cockroach

German cockroaches are light brown to tan with two dark stripes located on their backs. They have six legs and antennae, making them German roach! These bugs can be found across North America but not too far from home – they’re mostly limited within the United States’ borders though there has been an increase in sightings near New York City recently due possibly because of all those shipping containers that bring new stuff into town every day? Who knows why these things happen… anyways if you spot one make sure not touch or pick up anything remotely resembling what may come out when someone opens up his suitcase after coming back from a trip.
