Cockroaches can contaminate food, cooking utensils and furnishings. They carry and transmit diseases such as gastroenteritis and dysentery. They breed rapidly and invariably you only see a few of what may be a large infestation.

They are light brown to tan, with two dark and almost parallel stripes located on their backs, just behind their heads. They grow to about 15 mm in length. They will eat almost anything including built-up cooking grease. If sighted during the day, these cockroaches are probably part of a very large local population.
This is one of the largest of the cockroach species. Adults are typically 40 mm long, are reddish-brown and have a border around the head area. This cockroach can fly, particularly in warm weather. The American cockroach is mostly found in dark, warm and moist locations. They prefer decaying organic waste and can survive for months without food.
