The American cockroach is the biggest house-infesting pest species. You can find them in eateries, cafeterias, bakeries, grocery stores, pest control establishments, and other food storage or preparation facilities. These critters tend to skulk in damp sewers, basements, and heating ducts. Moreover, they are commonly transferred into homes via boxes or packaging from infested establishments.
American roaches, often found in households, can range from 1.4 to 2 inches long. They have a distinct reddish-brown body with a yellow band near the head. Additionally, their wings assist them in short flights.
Male cockroaches have short wings that barely go past the end of their abdomen. In contrast, females have wings that match the length of their stomachs. Baby cockroaches, known as nymphs, appear like adults but are smaller and do not possess wings.
Cockroaches have diverse dietary preferences, such as cheese, bakery products, leather, dead animals, plant materials, glue, and hair. They also thrive in damp habitats like sewers, garbage, and bathrooms, where they feed and seek refuge.
Dirt and germs can quickly transfer from unclean places to your food, utensils, and counters. Contaminated cooking areas and food can lead to illnesses such as food poisoning, dysentery, or diarrhea.
These critters can trigger allergies with their excrement and cast skin. And if their infestation is too high, they can even spread an unpleasant odour in your home.
