American Cockroach Identification and Elimination
The adult American Cockroach is 1 1/2 inches
long (38mm), making them the largest of the
house-infesting Cockroaches. With reddish brown,
fully developed wings, the American Cockroach has
a yellowish margin on the thorax or body region
behind the head. When disturbed, they may run
rapidly and adults may fly. Immature cockroaches
resemble adults except that they are wingless.

American Cockroaches generally live in moist
areas, but can survive in dry areas if they have
access to water. They prefer warm temperatures
around 84 degrees Fahrenheit and do not tolerate
cold temperatures.

Because of their fondness for sewers, large
populations can be seen in many cities after heavy
rains or flooding. They may feed on a wide variety
of plant and animal material.

Due to their large size and slow development, large
infestations of these insects are not common within
houses. However, during certain times of the year,
they may move inside a house from outside
sources. For example, in winter these Cockroaches
may move indoors, seeking warmer temperatures
and food.

Cockroaches may enter houses via sewer
connections, under doors, around utility pipes, air
ducts, or other openings in the foundation.
Cockroach populations in basements can be
reduced by decreasing dampness and applying
residual insecticides into cracks and crevices
where there is evidence of Cockroach activity
(presence of egg cases, dead Cockroaches, brown
fecal smears).

Whether you call it a "Water Bug or Palmetto Bug" these are just fancy words for an American Cockroach. In
residential areas, these Cockroaches live in basements, around pipes and sewers, and may move outdoors
into yards during warm weather. These cockroaches are common in basements, crawl spaces and cracks and
crevices of porches, foundations, and walkways adjacent to buildings. Many times, the American Cockroach
can be found under decks, under mulching materials, inside hollow block construction, or in any cool and
damp area.

elimination.
