The Pest Of The Week: The Oriental Cockroach

Small oriental cockroach (Blatta Orientalis)

What most people in the Southern United States call a “waterbug” is officially called the Oriental Cockroach. They are referred to as “waterbugs” because they are frequently found in drains, sewers, sprinkler system boxes, etc.; anywhere there is water. These roaches cannot survive long without the water.

Reaching lengths of well over 1 ½ inches, the Oriental cockroach is one of the biggest species of cockroach in the country. Despite having huge wings (in the male species), the cockroaches are actually poor flyers. They have a glossy dark brown color, and are found in the southern U.S, Midwest, and Northwest.

Oriental Cockroaches are some of the dirtiest insects found on the planet; eating trash and spreading disease. The roaches will each just about anything, but love to feed on the dead and decaying carcasses of animals. In addition to eating all sorts of garbage, Oriental Cockroaches spread pathogens like E. coli. Avoid Oriental Cockroach infestations by enlisting professional roach control from a reputable pest management company.
