Most people are familiar with the cockroach and the fact that they do not want them living inside of their home. Cockroaches are insects that have oval-shaped bodies, and while many have wings, most are not great at flying. You can usually identify different cockroach species by their size and specific color and color pattern. The German cockroach is one of the smallest species of household invading roach; they have dark stripes on their back behind their head. In contrast, the American cockroach is the largest species of household-invading cockroach, and has a yellow figure-8 pattern on its back. In addition to German and American cockroaches, other species that frequently invade our spaces in Knoxville include Oriental cockroaches, smokybrown cockroaches, and brown-banded cockroaches.
Before moving into your home or business, cockroaches were traveling through trash, sewers, around drains, and across the ground. Roaches are dangerous insects, for a number of reasons:
Cockroaches have become a problem for you because they are easily adaptable and live in a variety of environments. Cockroaches are an issue whether you live in the suburbs, country, or city and can find their way into any structure in a variety of ways:
Cockroaches are frequent invaders of both homes and businesses. They will take advantage of any outdoor or indoor space that provides them with appropriate shelter and easy access to food. They are scavengers and will eat almost anything they find. Cockroaches will feed on crumbs from the floor, a whole cake left on the counter, or toothpaste in the bathroom.
Cockroaches use their six legs to scurry from place to place. Most species prefer the dark, and when lights switch on, they scatter back to their hiding spots. Many people find they have cockroaches after walking into the kitchen or bathroom in the middle of the night and turning on the light. Some of their most common hiding spots include cracks in walls or floors, in storage areas (basements or closets), under sinks, around floor drains, behind wall voids, or in crawlspaces. Some species do prefer to live in dry locations like attics or the upper parts of cabinets.
