Oriental Roach


Characteristics

  • Is one of the few cockroaches that are incapable of flight

These large cockroaches prefer to live outdoors but will venture inside in search of food and water. They also thrive in semi-outdoor spaces such as porches and sewers. In fact, oriental cockroaches are known for their preference of eating garbage, and decaying matter. They are very dependent upon water and usually only found in areas of high moisture.

Sighting these roaches indoors is a definitive sign that your building is not properly sealed. Learn more about our pest proofing services here.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
