Cockroach Exterminator in Idaho

Have you seen a cockroach in your home running away from a light? Besides their ick factor, cockroaches can be dangerous to your family and your pets, carrying bacteria and viruses on their bodies, which can enter your food.

If you’ve seen even one, it could be part of a larger colony that should be eradicated for your safety.

Types of Cockroaches in Idaho

The American cockroach is reddish-brown and glossy with a yellow area right behind the head. They can reach a length of three inches, the biggest in Idaho. Originally from humid climates in Africa, they hide indoors in warm areas of homes. Look in dark places with a flashlight to try to catch them running away–basements, crawl spaces, restrooms, under shelves or pallets, in cabinets, clocks, and picture frames.

The German cockroach is smaller than the American but is an even worse pest. They don’t have natural predators inside of human homes, which are an ideal environment for them to multiply.

The brown-banded cockroach is the smallest type in Idaho—only about half an inch long. They have one or more light tan areas across their brown backs that look like a small stripe.
