Pest Of The Week: The Smokybrown Cockroach
Most of us in the United States who are dealing with cockroach infestations are battling American Cockroaches. If you life in a Gulf Coast state like Texas, Mississippi, Florida, or Louisiana, you make be confusing your American cockroach infestation for that of a Smokybrown cockroach. Both of these roaches look very similar. Both roaches are a dark brown color with a shiny abdomen/thorax, but the Smokybrown cockroach has light-rimmed pattern on its thorax.
The wings of the Smokybrown cockroach extend past the roach’s abdomen, and they can reach lengths of just over an inch. The â€œsmokiesâ€ love very damp and dark areas, and hate cold weather. They will rapid lose moisture and die when exposed to the elements. Look for these roaches around the concealed perimeters of your home, and under mulch, lawn clippings, or leaves in which they eat. They really become a problem when they enter our homes during the winter months looking for refuge from the cold.
