American, Oriental, German – What Type of Cockroach Do You Have?


Cockroaches can cause major problems when they’re on your property. These pests can cause health issues, spread germs and contaminate your food. There are three kinds of cockroaches that you might end up needing NJ cockroach control services for:

American Cockroaches

These cockroaches are usually a brownish-red color and tend to get into homes by crawling through pipes and drains. If you have them in your home, you’re more likely to find them in rooms or areas that provide heat and moisture.

German Cockroaches

German cockroaches are smaller than American and Oriental cockroaches. These pests, which are brown, tend to enter homes by sneaking inside boxes or finding their way over from a neighboring apartment or townhome. These cockroaches look for dry environments to live in and can often be seen in kitchens.

Oriental Cockroaches

These cockroaches tend to be black or dark brown in color and are larger than German cockroaches. They can often be seen in outdoor areas near residential buildings and dumpsters, although they can also make their homes in moist basements. These pests look for areas that provide them with a cooler environment and some moisture.
