Types Of Roaches That Commonly Invade Naples

There are over 4000 thousand different types of cockroaches worldwide, and only a few are found in North America. You should avoid them at all costs. They do not make for good pets, even though they prefer indoor structures. You can usually find them in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, searching for food and water. In Florida, four types of cockroaches commonly invade homes: 

  • The American cockroach is the largest of home-invading roaches, growing up to two inches. It's reddish brown with light yellow undertones with wings. 

  • The German cockroach is light brown or tan with two dark horizontal stripes behind their heads. These roaches have wings but cannot fly like the American roach. They grow a little over half an inch.

  • The Australian cockroach is similar to the American roach in appearance. It also has wings and can fly, but rarely does. It is attracted to bright lights.

  • The Asian cockroach is the newest in the United States since 2017. They grow to about an inch and appear similar to the German cockroach, except they can fly, too.  

Each type of cockroach varies in its habits and behaviors. However, their main goal is to consume organic matter, a job that leads to the spread of bacteria and germs over your surfaces. Identification can help a certified pest control provider determine the best solution for safe removal that brings you and your family out of harm's way.

The Health Hazards Roaches Bring Into Your Home

Cockroaches in Naples are attracted to some disturbing places that humans actively avoid. It's not their fault; their purpose in nature is to eat decaying, organic matter that builds up from waste. Without cockroaches, the world would be challenging to keep clean of dead or decaying organisms. However, letting roaches run rampant would harm human civilization. Cockroach control is required to keep the environment balanced and well-maintained.

There are about 33 types of illnesses that cockroaches bring into your home, including:

  • Dysentery 

  • Salmonellosis 

  • Gastroenteritis

  • E. coli infections

Cockroach droppings, saliva, and discarded skins can trigger allergies when swept into the air and breathed in. It is rare, but cockroaches can also bite if they feel threatened.  

Why It Is So Hard To Get Rid Of Roaches On Your Own

Roaches are a nuisance pest because they are tough to remove from your home. Millions of years of survival instincts have taught these pests how to avoid the deadliest of threats too well. They can flatten their bodies and hide away in the slimmest of cracks in your home. To make matters worse, cockroaches have also adapted to become more resistant to conventional deterrent methods.

Cockroaches also reproduce incredibly fast. Female roaches can breed without a male cockroach, allowing them even more opportunities to grow and infest your home. The larger  a cockroach infestation in Naples becomes, the more you'll be able to detect a musty odor emanating from areas around your home. Put a stop to cockroach infestations by contacting a pest control company near you.
