Roach Identification

There are several types of roaches found around the world and each species requires a certain treatment method. In the southern United States, the most common species found in homes and businesses are the American Cockroach and Smokey brown Cockroach, both also known as a Palmetto Bug, and the German Cockroach.

American Cockroaches

Smokeybrown and American cockroaches are both quite large, up to 2 inches in length, and have the ability to fly. The main identifier between these two species is color. While the Smokeybrown variety is a darker brown color, the American Cockroach is reddish-brown with a “sunglasses” shape visible behind its head.

German Cockroaches

The German Roach is a particularly loathed species that is the most common cause of roach infestation in apartment buildings, restaurants, and hotels in America. German cockroaches tend to be light brown to tan in color, with two dark nearly parallel stripes that are located on their backs, just behind their heads.

Cockroach Infestation Prevention

Lodestar Pest Management’s highly skilled team of cockroach control experts will get rid of the roaches in your home or property. However, it is important to remember that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Make sure to eliminate food sources as well as identify and remove possible entry points. Look for any cracks or crevices to the outside and use caulk to seal them up to prevent pests from entering your building.
