Have a Roach Problem? Our Pest Exterminators Can Help

Cockroach fossils have been dated as hundreds of millions of years old. Cockroaches have not been around for so long because of luck, but because they can adapt and thrive in most environments. This means that cockroaches are one of the hardest pests to eliminate.

There are thousands of cockroach species, but our Sacramento cockroach exterminators typically only see a couple species become indoor California pests. The most common indoor cockroach in California is the German cockroach. You may also find the brown-banded cockroach indoors.

Other cockroach species include the American cockroach, Oriental cockroach, German cockroach and Turkestan cockroach. Though generally outdoor pests, they may come indoors too.

Signs of a Cockroach Infestation


You may have a cockroach infestation if you come across any of the following situations:

Live cockroaches. If you see one cockroach, chances are there are more cockroaches hiding. Most cockroach species, besides the American cockroach, prefer to live in packs.

Cockroaches are nocturnal, so you are more likely to see them at night. If you see cockroaches during the day, it may be because there is a large population of them.

Cockroach eggs. Cockroaches are avid breeders. If you find cockroach eggs in your house, you likely have an infestation.

Cockroaches lay multiple eggs at once in a casing called an ootheca. The ootheca of a German cockroach could contain up to 50 eggs.

Can Roaches Cause Respiratory Problems?

Unfortunately, cockroaches can leave behind waste that can disrupt our breathing.

Shedding/Molting. Over their lifetimes, cockroaches shed their exoskeletons multiple times. These moltings eventually breakdown and spread particles through the air.

Cockroach feces. Cockroach feces can look different depending on the species. For example, German cockroaches leave feces that looks like coffee grounds.

Check for feces in undisturbed cabinets and drawers. You may also look on top of cabinets or behind appliances. If you find feces in your home, our Sacramento pest exterminators can identify your pest.

Musty smell. Like other pest infestations, cockroaches have a musty smell. Cockroaches produce an odorous chemical to communicate with each other.

What Attracts Cockroaches in Your Home?

Cockroaches have three main needs: food, water and shelter. Unfortunately, your home has all three. Each species of cockroach has its own preferences.

German cockroach. The German cockroach prefers warm and humid areas that are near food and water sources. Generally, they are found in kitchen and bathroom areas.

Brown-banded cockroach. The brown-banded cockroach prefers warmer environments than the German cockroach. They may live near warm appliances or in unairconditioned spaces. Brown-banded cockroaches prefer starches. They will eat the glue from envelopes, stamps and wallpaper.
