What Are Cockroaches and Are They Dangerous?
While cockroaches can be found throughout the United States, Holliston suffers infestations from three different species of cockroaches:
American Cockroach – Reddish brown in color, approximately 2 inches in length and have wings, making them able to fly
German Cockroach – The most common species of roaches found in New England, they are light brown in color, ½ inch to 5/8 of an inch in length and have wings but do not fly
Oriental Cockroach – Shiny brown in color, approximately 1 inch in length and have wings but are unable to fly
All three of these species of roaches will enter homes through small holes and cracks in search of food, water, and shelter. Oriental and American cockroaches tend to be attracted to moisture, with oriental cockroaches found in sinks, by washing machines, and basements and American cockroaches preferring to live in mulch in flower beds, but will be found in bathrooms and damp basements. German cockroaches are much more adaptable, foraging for food in kitchens in homes, apartment complexes, and other commercial facilities. While cockroaches can bite, they rarely do. They can be a dangerous insects, carrying bacteria and cause contamination in food and water supplies, possibly causing serious health risks to humans and their pets.
