Oriental cockroach is one of the four most common roach species to attack homes and businesses in the United States.
As with other roach species, it is possible for Oriental roaches to invade any structure.
Although they do not live in water, oriental cockroaches are often referred to as "water bugs" because they prefer to live in highly damp or moist environments. Cockroaches do not swim in the water. The body of an oriental cockroach is elongated and capsule-shaped and has a glossy black coloration.
They are lethargic and travel more slowly than other cockroach species, which often scurry from place to place. Oriental cockroaches lack the ability to fly as well.
Before crawling across the floors, tables, utensils, food, and countertops in your home, Oriental cockroaches traversed sewers, drains, rubbish piles, and other germ-filled areas.
The bacteria and other infectious agents of Oriental cockroaches transmit diseases that include nausea, diarrhea, fever, and rashes on the skin.
The presence of Oriental cockroaches is also associated with allergic responses. In vulnerable individuals, particularly children, the presence of cockroaches triggers asthma episodes.
Oriental cockroaches inhabit gardens and under porches and decks when living outside. Their proximity to our homes enables them to enter with relative ease.
When the temperature outside becomes too hot and dry, Oriental cockroaches often go indoors in search of moisture. Additionally, they wander indoors when searching for food.
It just takes a few of these roaches to enter your home for a significant infestation to develop. They can conceal themselves from view, allowing them to reproduce and grow their numbers before humans discover their presence.
Oriental cockroaches are difficult to see when they are hidden in dark corners and cracks of your home due to their black hue. They are not adept climbers and prefer to remain on the ground.
They forage for food at night. Throughout the day, they congregate in damp areas, such as around drains, sump pumps, and water pipes. Consequently, infestations are common in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and basements.
