Cockroaches are common pests in Arizona. Calls from frantic homeowners for roach pest control services are constant throughout the year. Most types of roaches that Phoenix-area homeowners encounter are not native to either Arizona or the United States. Yet they are prolific.
Common Roaches in Phoenix Az
Some of the more common roaches that require roach pest control services:
- German Cockroaches – Despite their name, these critters originally came from Africa. Typically, they measure around a quarter to one inch in length. German roaches can easily be identified by distinctive dark brown stripes (two) that run from the back of their head under the wings the length of their body. Like most roaches, they prefer warm places near dishwashers, stoves, backs/underneath refrigerators, and water heaters.
Unlike many other species of cockroaches, they carry their egg capsules (ootheca), with them until it hatches, secreting a chemical to keep the embryos inside viable. Although they possess wings, they do not fly, but may use their wings to slow their descent when they jump to the ground from high places.
- American Cockroaches – Like its cousin’s German roaches their name is deceptive as they originate from Africa and were first introduced to North American around 1625. This pest is larger than most Phoenix area roaches and typically run from about ¾ of an inch to 2 inches in length. Generally, this pest stays outside but in proximity to structures. Adult males and females both possess wings and are fully capable of flight. These roaches can live up to one year and produce more than 150 offspring during that time.
- Oriental Cockroaches – The oriental cockroach, also known as a water bug, measures about one inch in length and is usually black. Males have a full set of wings; the females and immature nymphs are wingless. Males are somewhat capable of flight and can reach distances of about six to nine feet. These insects are very fond of dark, moist environments such as basements, crawl spaces, and other areas prone to water leaks and flooding. Unlike the German cockroach, females deposit their egg cases in random places, leaving the young to care for themselves. This makes them more vulnerable to human intervention.
