Oriental Cockroach Identification and Elimination
The Oriental Cockroach is dark reddish brown in
color, so dark in fact that it is sometimes referred to as
the "Black Beetle" in Europe and some parts of the
United States.

When disturbed, it may run rapidly and adults may
fly. Females are wingless, while males have wings.
Female Oriental Cockroaches can be distinguished
from large nymphs by the wing stubs which have
definite venation.

The adult roach is about 1 inch long (some being
reported as 1 1/4 inch in length) and immature
Cockroaches resemble adults except that they are
wingless. Unlike other pest Cockroaches, Oriental
roaches cannot climb up smooth surfaces (they lack
sticky pads on their feet).

The Oriental Cockroach breeds well in unventilated
crawl spaces or basements where humidity is high.

These Cockroaches may enter houses via sewer
connections, under doors, around utility pipes, air
ducts, or other openings in the foundation.
Cockroach populations in crawl spaces can be
reduced by decreasing dampness.
Oriental Cockroaches generally live in moist areas, but can survive in dry areas if they have access to water.
They prefer cooler temperatures around 75 degrees Fahrenheit and can survive during winter in protected
areas outdoors where temperatures average 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit. These Cockroaches are common in
basements, crawl spaces, cracks and crevices of porches, foundations, and walkways adjacent to buildings.
They feed on a wide variety of plant and animal material.
