The Different Types Of Cockroaches That Invade Chandler Homes

Cockroaches invade Chandler homes primarily searching for food and moisture; however, not all species act the same way or pose the same issues. In order to properly address a cockroach problem, it’s important to properly identify the species. The different types that are found in local homes include:

  • German cockroach: This species is the most common across the globe and in Chandler. The German cockroach is on the smaller side and has a metallic silvery brown coloring. They are typically found wherever people live and are growing immune to many pesticides.
  • Brown-banded cockroach: The brown-banded cockroach is easily identified by the brown bands that mark its head, as well as its pronounced antennae. They are generally found in kitchens and bathrooms and are nocturnal in nature.
  • American cockroach: As one of the species of cockroach with wings, the American cockroach is hard to miss. They are also reddish-brown in coloring and have hairy legs. This cockroach can use the sewer system and be found in moist flowerbeds outside.
  • Oriental cockroach: The Oriental cockroach is dark brown in color and is one of the larger cockroaches in the area. They are known as waterbugs because they prefer wet environments.
