American Cockroach

The American cockroach is large in size, widespread throughout commercial and domestic environments, and known to infest in dwelling parts of buildings including wall, roof and sub floor voids, drains, loading docks, grease traps and around sewers. Preferring warm, moist and dark conditions, American cockroaches tend to live indoors in colder regions and outdoor in warmer regions.

American cockroaches have a preference for decaying organic matter, but will eat most human or animal foods and also book bindings, paper and clothing. Adults with a water source may survive for about 2-3 months without food.
