Cockroach Identification Can Help You Get Rid of the Problem

You may not know it now, but just because you saw one cockroach in your home doesn't mean all the others are the same kind. That's right, there are several different types of cockroaches and cockroach identification is often quite simple when you know what to look for. In your home you may see the American roach, the Madagascar hissing cockroach, the oriental roach or water bug cockroach, and the German cockroach. All of these types of cockroaches are quite different from one another, and if you look closely you will find cockroach identification quite easy, and perhaps even a bit intriguing.

First, there is the American cockroach, which is up to one and a half inches in length. The American cockroaches can be identified by their reddish brown color, and they also have a yellow edge on their body directly behind the head. American roach is the biggest type of cockroach you will likely see in your home, and they can live up to one year!

Next there is the oriental or water bug cockroach. While the oriental and water bug cockroach are often thought of as two separate types of cockroaches, they are actually two different names for the same critter. The oriental or water bug cockroach can be identified by its dark brown or black color, and is usually around one inch in length and has wings, but does not fly. Females are rounder and have smaller wings, while the males are slim and have longer wings.

The German cockroach is the one that needs to be identified the most, as it is the biggest pest of them all. The adult is about 15 mm in length and is brown or dark brown and stands out against others because it has two parallel stripes that run the length of the body. The male is thinner than the female and has a tapered body, while the female has a very solid body that is covered by wings.

The Madagascar hissing cockroach is one that many worry about, but it's truly harmless. This cockroach can usually be told apart by the hissing sound that it makes when it breathes. It is also very large, has prickly legs, and is quite shy. The Madagascar roach is not often seen in homes, but is seen in the forests of Madagascar.

If you study these descriptions you may find that you have more than one type of cockroach living in your home. This shouldn't be a big surprise, as cockroaches follow one another from place to place to find the best eating and living conditions. Most cockroaches, despite their type, like dark, moist, warm environments that will provide water and food sources. If this describes your home, you may have quite a few species of cockroaches living in your walls. Cockroach identification will help you deal with the problem in the appropriate way.
