Appearance

Shiny black to dark reddish brown; about 1 inch. Females have no wings, only two small wing pads.

Habitat

The Oriental cockroach commonly inhabits sewers and storm culverts and will enter buildings through floor drains. It survives quite well outdoors in firewood, leaf litter, sheds, doghouses and similar locations. During the colder months, oriental cockroaches reinvade homes, establishing themselves in basements, cellars and crawl spaces.

Diet

Scavenger; eats almost anything. These cockroaches are a particular focus of roach control because of their strong “roachy” odor and because they feed on filth.

Roach control: oriental cockroach

Cockroaches pose serious health risks to your family or business. In addition to standard roach control treatments such as baits to kill an existing population, Oriental roach control requires particular attention to damp crawl spaces, basement and floor drains. Sealing cracks in your home’s exterior and installing screens in all vents helps prevent these pests from returning.
