Pest Details: Cockroaches

Cockroaches exist in 55 varieties in the United States, but only 5 kinds are troublesome indoors. Not only do they spread disease by contaminating food, they create an offensive odor in large populations. Indeed, even dishes crossed by cockroaches may give off an offensive order unless they are washed thoroughly before food warms them.

Because cockroaches multiply so rapidly - one common German cockroach produces forty more every thirty days - it is essential to determine their hiding places. 

Adult German cockroaches are about 1/2 - 5/8 inch in length. The color varies from light brown to tan, except for 2 dark streaks on the shield-like segment behind the head.
