Cockroaches are resilient pests that can quickly multiply and infest various areas of your property. They are known to carry disease-causing organisms, contaminate food, and trigger allergies and asthma in sensitive individuals. To effectively combat these pests, it is crucial to understand their habits and characteristics.
There are several species of cockroaches, with the most common being the German cockroach, American cockroach, and Oriental cockroach. Each species has distinct characteristics and habits, which can influence the most appropriate pest control measures.
There are about 30 species of cockroaches that are associated with human habitats. The most common species we have in the Coachella Valley are: The American Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, German Cockroach, and Brown-banded Cockroach. These pests prefer warm conditions found in and around buildings. Cockroaches leave behind chemical trails in their feces, as well as airborne pheromones for swarming and mating. These chemical trails can transmit bacteria onto surfaces. Cockroaches also can pick up disease causing bacteria like salmonella on their legs and later transfer them on foods and cause food poisoning.
