Asian Roach Control
Next, we’ve got the Asian cockroach. The Asian roach is most commonly mistaken for a German roach. The Asian roach is about one or two centimeters in length, being much smaller than the Oriental or American roach. The Asian roach also has a little brown Mohawk-type style strip on its head. They are excellent fliers, and they’re very much like the American roaches. They are found usually in and around homes with heavy foliage. Regular exterior pest control and yard treatments work best to control these and limit their interior sightings. To note, Asians can swarm in hundreds and travel as far as the wind carries them from their nesting site.
The Asian, Oriental and American roaches will usually gain access to homes through gaps around doors and windows. They seem to sense the temperature difference between the inside of your home and the outside environment. That sense seems to help them find water, and they’re attracted to water.
German Roach Control
Now, lastly, the German cockroach. These are the worst. Much like the Asian roach, they are one to two centimeters in length. They also have the brown-shaped strip on their head, but they do not fly. Germans are brought in specifically through packages and people. These are the pests that require special services. They usually nest in cracks and crevices near water sources such as fridges, sinks and dishwashers. They almost always find them in kitchens in restaurants. Sanitation and cleanliness help to control these but will not be enough.
These guys reproduce rapidly. One female can lead to 10,000 descendants in a year. The other bad thing about these guys is that they are introduced, so a lifestyle change is usually needed as well as regular services and special services just to get them out. German roaches can cause respiratory diseases in children as well as spread diseases, and be noted they usually stay within 10 to 20 feet from their nesting site.
