What Are the Most Common Types of Cockroaches in Lake Gaston, VA?

In Lake Gaston, the most commonly encountered species of cockroaches are the German Cockroach, American Cockroach, and the Oriental Cockroach.

  • The German Cockroach is recognized by its small size, typically about 1/2 inch long, and light brown color with two dark parallel lines running from the back of its head to its wings. It's the most prolific breeder among all cockroaches and is often found in kitchens and bathrooms.
  • The American Cockroach is large, about 1.5 inches in length, and reddish-brown, with wings that cover their whole back. They have a yellowish margin on the body region behind the head. These cockroaches prefer warm, damp areas like basements and crawl spaces.
  • Oriental Cockroaches, also known as 'water bugs', are shiny black to dark reddish-brown and about 1 inch in length. They are often found in cool, damp areas such as basements, drains, and other similar environments, and males have wings that only extend halfway down their backs.

Our team at Commonwealth Exterminators is experienced in dealing with each unique type of cockroach and will tailor our treatment toward the specific species behavior and biology.

Prevent Cockroach Infestations with Proper Home Maintenance

While our team at Commonwealth Exterminators is dedicated to providing effective cockroach control services, it's important to also take steps to prevent infestations in the first place. By practicing proper home maintenance, you can significantly reduce the risk of cockroach problems in your home.

Here are some tips to help prevent cockroach infestations:

  • Keep your kitchen clean and free of food debris: Cockroaches are attracted to crumbs and spills, so regularly sweep, mop, and wipe down countertops.
  • Store food in airtight containers: Cockroaches can easily access open bags and boxes, so transfer dry goods like cereal, pasta, and snacks into sealed containers.
  • Take out the trash regularly and keep garbage cans tightly sealed: Cockroaches are attracted to the smell of rotting food.
  • Fix any leaks or standing water sources: Cockroaches need water to survive, so repair any leaking pipes or faucets and remove any sources of standing water.
  • Seal cracks and crevices around your home: Cockroaches can squeeze through tiny openings, so use caulk or weather stripping to seal gaps around windows, doors, and utility lines.

By following these preventative measures, you can help create a less hospitable environment for cockroaches and minimize the need for professional extermination services. However, if you do encounter a cockroach problem, our certified professionals are here to help.

Trust Commonwealth Exterminators for all your Lake Gaston cockroach control needs. Contact us today at (434) 848-9800 to schedule a consultation and get started on the path to a pest-free property.
