The Various Cockroaches in the Central Valley
This roach is one the most common roach that we deal with here in the Central Valley, We have plenty of heat and moisture which are prerequisites to an oriental roach population. These are the roaches that you will see on the exterior of your home and in your garage. They generally cannot survive once they get into your home unless you have a plumbing/moisture issue. This is why you will see them flipped on their backs and half dead inside your house, they wandered in and got dehydrated. It is rare that oriental roaches will infest a home but common that they make messes dying inside the home.
These roaches are actually starting to displace the oriental roach populations. These roaches, however, prefer cold and damp environments and are frequently found in the sub-areas of homes. American roaches will also infest the inside of homes if there is adequate moisture.
These roaches are commensal in the same way that rodents are. Rodents and roaches will live with people and will literally eat off the same table as you! They will infest your home and are the most difficult of the roaches to control due to how fast they can multiply in a home.
The health concerns with Roaches
Although Roaches do no spread disease by biting like mosquitos or fleas & ticks however they will spread salmonella and their feces and shed skins are proven to cause asthma in young children and they are major contributors to asthma in children just as with bedbugs. Roaches are nasty and really have no place in the home. It is very important that the roaches that you are dealing with are properly identified so that the proper treatment can be recommended. Luckily these roaches are fairly easy to distinguish from one another because of how they look and how they behave. Modesto roach control is one of the biggest services that we offer.
