Cockroaches are generalized insects, with few special adaptations, and may be among the most primitive living neopteran insects. They have a relatively small head and a broad, flattened body, and most species are reddish-brown to dark brown. They have large compound eyes, two ocelli, and long, flexible antennae.
Cockroaches are insects of the order Blattodea, which also includes termites. About 30 cockroach species out of 4,600 are associated with human habitats. About four species are well known as pests.
Cockroaches are both unpleasant and unsanitary. Getting rid of roaches can be tricky because the two most common roach types (German or American roaches) are eliminated using different techniques. The first step to get rid of roaches is to identify which type of roach you have. To determine which type of roach you have, first look at their sizes. Afterwards, compare physical features and habitats and reach out to our team. After determining what kind of cockroach you have, we have tips on how to inspect for roaches, critical sanitation/exclusion procedures, and best treatment options to get rid of roaches.
