American Cockroach Control Service

The American cockroach is also commonly known as the water bug, flying water bug or palmetto bug. These large cockroaches can grow to exceed 2 inches in length. They are common in shady, humid areas like flowerbeds, around trees, sewers and drains. Climate changes or food shortage can cause them to move indoors. When they move indoors, American cockroaches prefer to live in moist, humid environments. They can also survive in dry areas with sufficient food and water sources. These insects favor temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. When an American cockroach population infests a human home, the insects are drawn to food storage and preparation areas, as well as moist locations.

  • Unique Characteristics: This species is quite large and can grow up to more than two inches long. Their reddish or dark brown color is easy to identify.
  • Dangers: Upon its infestation, this type of pest also draws in other insects. It also brings with it all the bacteria and filth from the sewers and garbage.
  • Location: American Cockroaches are often found in shady, humid areas i.e. bushes, garbage dumpsters, sewers, and drains. Indoors they prefer moist, humid parts.
