Cockroaches are relatively large, flat insects with long, highly maneuverable antennae and compound eyes on a head which points downwards and backwards. The adult male of most species and the females of some have well developed wings, and some of the larger species actively fly at night. In all species the legs are large and well suited for rapid running. The speed and flat bodies of roaches enable them to quickly seek refuge in narrow crevices when disturbed. Most species, including those which are pests, are nocturnal and spend most of their time resting in dark harborages.
There are approximately 4,000 known species of cockroaches worldwide and in terms of the number of species and their wide distribution, cockroaches are among the most successful groups of animals. The long record of survival and continuing abundance of cockroaches is attributable to their cryptic habits, tough bodies, fast breeding, and broad diet.
In the Unites States, there are 55 species of cockroaches, most of which scavenge outdoors and seldom become pests. However, about a dozen species have become major indoor pests. The South Florida climate makes our area the perfect home for cockroaches. These reasons require an expert cockroach exterminator or resolve the problem. The most common in South Florida are:
- Brown-banded cockroach
- German cockroach
- American cockroach
- Smoky brown cockroach
- Oriental cockroach
- Australian cockroach
