American Cockroach

American Cockroach

American cockroaches are disgusting home invaders with a reddish brown tint. They scurry around on their 6 legs looking for food. Growing from 1.25 inches to 1.7 inches in length, these pests can infest a house quickly due to their fast reproductive habits.


Keeping food sources to a minimum is probably the best prevention. If there is no source of exposed food in the house, there will likely not be a roach infestation. However, piles of wood, leaves, or other debris outside the house are optimal environments for these pests. The best prevention is to have the perimeter of your home treated on a regular basis by a TDI Pest Control specialist.


Once cockroaches begin to appear in your home, getting rid of them can be problematic. Even the best sprays available over-the-counter can offer only a temporary solution, and will not prevent a resurgence of the problem. Our pest management professionals can eliminate roach infestations and prevent their reoccurrence.
