Cockroach Identification & Prevention

What are cockroaches?

Cockroaches are scavenging insects that are attracted to dark, moist areas. Many cockroaches prefer to live outdoors, but some have adapted to living mainly indoors after discovering our structures will keep them warm, provide them with the moisture they require, and offer a constant food source.

We identify a cockroach by its flatted oval-shaped body and long antennae. When you look at a cockroach from above, its head is hidden from view. Many cockroaches are winged, but few are strong fliers, preferring to use their spine-covered legs to move from place to place.

Many different types of cockroaches can invade our Savannah, GA properties; partnering with a professional is the best way to identify which of the following are in your home or business:

Are cockroaches dangerous?

There are many dangers associated with cockroaches, including being a trigger for allergies and asthma, especially in young children or people with weakened immune systems.

Another reason for these pests to be unwelcome in our structures is the bacteria, parasites, and viruses they carry on their bodies. They contaminate food and surfaces with pathogens that make us ill.

Cockroaches also take an emotional toll on people. It is difficult for someone to feel at ease in their home when they know cockroaches are sharing their space.

Where Will I Find Cockroaches?

Cockroaches will pop up almost anywhere that provides them with food, moisture, and shelter. Some places where cockroaches tend to become most problematic include houses, apartment buildings, restaurants, schools, hospitals, and other structures where food is stored or prepared.

Any home or business can become home to cockroaches after they move inside on their own or are accidentally introduced inside things like used furniture or electronics, deliveries, and grocery bags. Favorite hiding spots for cockroaches include cardboard boxes, the backs of drawers and cabinets, and behind appliances, baseboards, or wooden trim.
