Also known as Palmetto Bugs or Waterbugs, American Cockroaches are the largest cockroach in the U.S. American Cockroaches are considered one of the fastest running insects; they often dart out of sight when someone enters a room, and can fit into small spaces despite their large size. They have been known to fly, but it’s rare.
If you spot evidence of cockroaches call a licensed pest professional like Northwest Exterminating as soon as possible. American cockroaches can lay 10 or more egg cases, each containing 14-16 eggs. You don’t want this infestation to get out of hand.
American Cockroaches, or the Palmetto Bug, have been making appearances in homes all over the South recently. Reddish brown in color with a yellow marking, palmetto bugs can grow to be 1.5 to even 2 inches in length. These roaches have wings but are not good flyers.
Cockroaches are found in residences and commercial buildings…anywhere that has food and water sources. Homes, restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, food processing plants, and even hospitals are common places that cockroaches can be found. Kitchens, food storage areas, and basements are the usual areas roaches are found in because of food and water. They can be found in dark, moist places like basements, drains, tubs, and sewers looking for water.
