What does a cockroach look like and common types in Birminham, Alabama area

Cockroaches are rather prolific and resilient pests. They are well known for their ability to survive even in the most extreme conditions. That ability to adapt might explain why cockroaches are among the most ancient and widely spread species on earth. Their prolific procreation and short reproductive cycle also make cockroaches virtually impossible to eliminate without professional help.

Methods of cockroach extermination depend on the specific species and the degree of infestation. Your pest control professional will inspect and evaluate the situation and will recommend the best course of action. Often, cockroach extermination is a multi-step process and should be followed through carefully and methodically.


German Cockroach

German (or kitchen) cockroach is an indoor cockroach that is smaller than most other roach species and can be found all over the world. They measure 0.4 - 0.6 in, are light-brown in color, have wings but cannot fly. They prefer to nest in warm, humid places and can often be found near the kitchen sink or in the bathroom. These cockroaches present the greatest challenge to exterminators and require a special approach and treatments. A German roach infestation involves multi-step targeted action and consistent, professional treatment.


American Cockroach

American cockroaches are one of the largest roach species and measure about 1.5 - 3 inches long. Reddish-brown in color, they can be recognized by the yellow band behind their heads. American roaches are very fast runners and can also fly. These cockroaches are outdoor species that like to live in warm and humid places. They can often be found in flower beds, mulch, drains, sewers. When there are insufficient sources of food or water outside, American cockroaches can be found insides homes, typically under appliances or in kitchen cabinets.

Brown Banded Cockroach

Brown Banded cockroach can be recognized by two light-colored bands that run across the abdomen. Males are light-brown in color and females are dark-brown. This is one of the smallest cockroach species and measures between 0.4 and 0.6 inches in length. Unlike many other species, these indoor cockroaches tend to avoid water sources and look for dry and warm places. They often can be found in the ceilings and attics or in and around household appliances, such as TVs and refrigerators.

Pest Control

Oriental Cockroach

Often called black beetles or water bugs, Oriental cockroaches are outdoor species that is highly dependent on their proximity to water sources. These cockroaches are larger, measuring about 1.25 in, and are shiny dark-brown in color. Oriental cockroaches cannot fly. Because they so highly rely on water for survival, Oriental cockroaches settle in moist places under porches, gutters, in drains and sewers. They can also be found in mulch beds and leaf piles.
