Cockroach Identification & Prevention

Defeating Dangerous Cockroaches

Cockroaches are dangerous and hard to manage pests, and dealing with them is no fun. If you have cockroaches in your home or business and want to eliminate all traces of them safely and reliably, it's important to seek professional pest control for roaches. The experts at Anver Pest Control are here to help.

What are cockroaches?

Cockroaches are one of the most troublesome pests you can encounter around your property, and they are easily identified by their flat, oval-shaped bodies, spiny legs, and long antennae. Cockroaches range in color from tan and light brown to dark brown and reddish-brown, and proper cockroach identification can help you determine which species is running wild on your property.

In our area, the most common types of cockroaches to encounter are the larger American cockroach, the smaller German cockroach, and the Oriental cockroach, which is drawn to moist and damp spaces.

Cockroach infestations tend to go unnoticed, so if you start seeing this pest running around, the infestation is likely widespread and needs to be addressed immediately.

Are cockroaches dangerous?

Many people understand that cockroaches are dangerous, but you might not know just how harmful an infestation of these pests can be. Cockroaches are known for the number of diseases and pathogens they spread. The diseases cockroaches carryquickly contaminate food sources and surfaces around your property. Illnesses such as cholera, listeriosis, and gastroenteritis, among many others, are caused by roach infestations.

Additionally, cockroaches trigger allergy issues and asthma attacks due to the salvia, shed skins, droppings, and egg cases they leave around your property.

Why do I have a cockroach problem?

Cockroaches are opportunistic and will hide inside items like boxes, second-hand appliances and furniture, or other deliveries to your property. They may also slip inside openings around your property, such as cracks around windows and doors, to search for food and water. Accessible food and water and cluttered areas only further attracts a cockroach infestation to your property.

Where will I find cockroaches?

Cockroaches may be seen in overgrown areas outdoors or hiding around waste disposal and compost piles. Once inside, they prefer to hide in dark, secluded places during the day. These popular roach hiding spots include kitchens, bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms, the space between walls, and under or behind appliances. You may also see roaches in drawers, cabinets, food storage areas, or around floor drains.
