Eliminating cockroaches for good is essential if you want to protect your Maine home from these unhygienic insects. Professional cockroach control in Maine can help you achieve this goal.

Types Of Cockroaches: Identifying Common Species

While cockroaches are a fairly diverse species, there are a few certain types of cockroaches that are more likely to be invading homes around the Maine area. It’s important to know which species of cockroach you might be dealing with on your property, as identification leads to more effective and tailored treatment plans.

The most commonly encountered cockroach species in Maine include German cockroaches, Oriental cockroaches, and American cockroaches. Each of these species looks slightly different. German cockroaches will be smaller and tan or light brown in color, American cockroaches grow up to two inches and are reddish-brown, and Oriental cockroaches are a shiny dark brown or black.

Health Hazards Of Cockroaches: Protecting Your Family

Even though cockroaches are a fairly common pest, they are still incredibly unhygienic and bring serious health hazards with them when they invade your home. As cockroaches scavenge across food preparation and storage areas, they track bacteria and pathogens with them. Over time, this increases your risk of consuming contaminated food or picking up an illness such as salmonella, cholera, and dysentery.

Additionally, cockroaches are known to trigger allergies and breathing issues due to a protein found in their shells and saliva. These insects will leave shed skins, egg cases, droppings, and saliva throughout your property as they infest it, triggering serious respiratory problems and allergic reactions.

It’s important to treat a cockroach infestation right away if you want to avoid these serious health hazards.
