About American Roaches

Dating from prehistoric days, the cockroach is said to have a lifecycle of up to 700 days. They molt up to 14 times in that lifespan. Big, brown, shiny, and icky, the American cockroach is unmistakable. When they sense danger, they dart out of sight through the smallest cracks and crevices, and they run very quickly. They are nocturnal and keep away from all light. Additionally, the cockroach nymphs can regenerate their limbs.

The American cockroach feeds on just about anything it can find. They are omnivorous and opportunistic. Not to mention, they will even eat their own dead. YUCK!

These roaches live outdoors in moist areas like mulch beds, woodpiles, flowerbeds, and sewer systems. In some parts, they live on trees, gaining the nickname palmetto bugs. Like any other pest, the roach enters a home to look for food and water.

Unfortunately, they are very hardy and They multiple very quickly. A few cockroaches can easily get out of hand in a matter of weeks or months. No one wants that.

The worst part of the roach may really be the odor they emit. This pheromone helps them locate one another but repels humans. If you have ever accidentally vacuumed one up, you know right away the stink they create.

When roaches make their way into your home, do not hesitate to call your local exterminator to rid your home of the pests.
