Most Common Cockroaches Found In Anthem
A community like Anthem might seem peaceful and idyllic, but it is just as susceptible to cockroach invasions as other environments. These pests thrive wherever there are people, but they’re not all the same. Here are the three most common types in the area:
- Oriental cockroach: The Oriental cockroach has a very tubular shape and is usually black or dark brown in coloring. They primarily live outdoors amidst yard debris and rubbish, but also seek water constantly, so they can become an issue in bathrooms and around gutters.
- German cockroach: The German cockroach is fairly small but mighty in its abilities. This species is a light brown color with a metallic shimmer and while it has a set of fully formed wings, the German cockroach rarely takes flight, but rather runs very quickly. They are also the most prevalent species across the globe and have a growing immunity to many pesticides.
- American cockroach: The American cockroach is supersized and the largest home-invading species in the area. They are a reddish-brown color and have wings so they can fly short distances. The American cockroach is also known as the waterbug for its proclivity to travel through sewer systems.
At Green Home Pest Control, we provide comprehensive services for all species of cockroaches in order to keep our neighbors safe. For more information on our cockroach control services, please call us today.
How To Tell If Your Anthem Home Has A Roach Problem
It’s very likely that you might develop a cockroach infestation in your Anthem home and not know that you have a problem for quite some time. This happens because cockroaches do their best to not be seen and are primarily active at night. That said, there are some telltale signs that might indicate an active population on your property. Those include:
- Nibble marks on cereal boxes
- A strong, unpleasant stench
- Noticing cockroaches around the kitchen, living room, or bathroom
- Eggs capsules that can contain upwards of 15 eggs
- Streaky smear marks from cockroach feces
- Ruined leather items as well as fabrics and personal items
- Finding piles of feces that look like dirt or pepper grounds

The Dangers Cockroaches Bring To Your Anthem Home
While finding cockroaches in your Anthem home might seem like a mere disturbance, they are far more serious an issue than that. Cockroaches are very tenacious pests that will do anything to access the things they need to survive. They are scrappy scavengers that bring dangers into your home, which are widely linked to the byproducts they leave behind.
Cockroaches are notorious for shedding body parts during the molting phase, which happens approximately six times a year, as well as saliva and fecal matter. When particles of these things spread into the air, some members of your household may experience allergic reactions as well as asthma attacks. These incidents are most common amongst children, but adults are not safe from them either. Droppings and saliva can also be the source of harmful pathogens that lead to E. coli infections, diarrhea, salmonellosis, and gastroenteritis.
Cockroaches in Anthem are also affiliated with an increase in personal stress and anxiety that stems from the shame and negative connotations that are associated with having an infestation in the first place. There are also cockroach phobias that can exacerbate discomfort in certain people.
