Due to this, cockroaches can quickly contaminate food supplies, surfaces, air ducts, and anything with which they come into contact. and are known spreaders of disease.

Cockroach Identification & Habits

Though cockroaches vary somewhat in appearance, all have flat, oval-shaped bodies, six legs, and two antennae that are usually the same length or longer than their bodies. Some species have wings, while others do not. Additionally, some species are identified by the strong musty odor they create.

Cockroaches often find their way into homes and businesses while foraging for food, getting in through open windows and doors, torn screens, and cracks in the foundation or exterior walls. Hitchhiking is another way cockroaches get inside. They hide out of sight in things like boxes, packages, and used furniture or appliances, scurrying away at the first sign of light, and are prolific breeders.

A small cockroach infestation can quickly become an extensive and frustrating infestation. If you are experiencing an active cockroach infestation, contact the pros at Amco Pest Solutions.

Cockroach Prevention Tips

Cockroaches thrive in warm, humid weather and are often very problematic in urban areas. Cities with dense populations allow cockroaches to thrive, providing them with plenty of food and shelter. However, these pests can adapt to almost any environment, making them an issue for any urban, suburban, or rural setting. Here are some tips to prevent cockroaches from invading your home or business:

  • Inspect your home’s exterior and seal entry points along the roofline, foundation, and exterior walls.
  • Fix leaky pipes and fixtures to decrease moisture problems.
  • Use dehumidifiers to reduce moisture levels in your home.
  • Keep tight-fitting or locking lids on your trash cans. Store trash cans away from the exterior walls of your structure.
  • Maintain and contain composting areas.
  • Pick up fallen fruits and vegetables from garden areas.
  • Keep outdoor eating areas free of food debris.
  • Pick up uneaten pet food.
  • Inspect boxes, packages, and used furniture before bringing them into your home.
