FACTS ABOUT COMMON CALIFORNIA COCKROACHES
While there are three basic types of Roaches we see in Southern California: American, Oriental and German, the American and German cockroaches are the most common structural roach. American Roaches have many nick names. ‘Water bugs’, ‘Sewer Roaches,’ etc. America Roaches are larger about two inches and reddish-brown solid color. American Roaches like to live in dark, damp warmer areas like sewers, drain pipes, and other utility areas. They are commonly seen inside homes once or twice per year as they make their way in using garage areas, doors and windows, structure gaps and drains. American roaches fly and are attracted to lights, so they are often seen outside in the summertime on patios, walkway and yard areas. Naturally, American roaches live in thick brush areas and ground cover such as mulch. Planter areas, Ivy areas, and others like them are good areas for American Roaches to live.
The California American (‘sewer’) Roach usually lives outdoors, but will retreat into your home or business to escape hot summer temperatures. They can get in through the plumbing or any small crack or opening. Once established inside, they breed rapidly.
The California German cockroach has two stripes on its back and comes inside looking for food. A little water and some crumbs and they’re ready to multiply.
GETTING RID OF CALIFORNIA ROACHES
AMERICAN ROACHES (SEWER ROACHES)
A Roach Control Service for American Roaches in a combination of exclusion and chemical treatments. Treatments are less invasive and may require moderate preparation and areas need to be vacated for about half a day for interior treatments. Some variables include crawl spaces, plumbing gaps, floor drains and storage areas.
Service costs start at $185 for exterior. Quarterly Regular Service is recommended for long term control and management depending on exterior variables.
German Roaches are more of an ‘interior roach’ and enter an area by being transferred by a person to person or an item. German Roaches are smaller, under an inch, and are light brown with a black stripe down the middle. German Roaches breed the fastest and can quickly reach higher activity levels and become an issue if not addressed properly. For this reason, we recommend a Roach Clean Out Service be performed as soon as German Roaches are confirmed.
