Sometimes, ignorance is bliss. Most of the homeowners we work with don't care about what type of cockroach has infested their New Haven home. To most people, there is only one important question that comes up when dealing with a cockroach infestation: How do I get rid of these disgusting pests?
The only reason our professionals have to know the difference between every type of cockroach is that extermination methods vary between different types of roaches. Some roaches are harder to kill than others. Knowing their behaviors and life-cycles is important when effectively treating roaches in New Haven.
Cockroach Species and Behavior
In New Haven, we mostly deal with three different species of cockroaches: American cockroaches, brown-banded cockroaches, and German cockroaches. All species have little quirks and require slightly different methods of elimination.
American cockroaches can fly and are a little easier to exterminate than some of our other local cockroaches.
Male brown-banded cockroaches, on the other hand, have wings, but they seldom fly. This species of roaches often need an adaptive extermination plan that requires additional steps because their life cycles are faster and irregular when compared with other roach species.
German cockroaches can’t fly at all, but they can be one of the most resilient and hard to kill home invaders of all our local pests. This is because German cockroaches have a very fast reproduction rate, and their eggs are resistant to most types of pest control.
All of these cockroaches are hard to kill, and it’s better to have them professionally treated sooner rather than later. For any of these three kinds of roaches common in New Haven, your chances of satisfactory extermination go up the sooner you address the problem.

Most everyone knows that cockroaches are dangerous. They are unhygienic and hazardous to your health. In particular, their feces and shed skin particles will trigger asthma attacks and allergies.

There are a lot of things that most people don't want to know about cockroaches, but there is one major thing that is important to share with you so that you can identify a possible roach infestation in your New Haven home: If you see one cockroach, you have an infestation.
One Cockroach Indicates A Big Problem
Yes, cockroaches spread disease. Yes, their feces and discarded skin particles can cause asthma attacks and allergic reactions. And yes, cockroaches leave a trail of disease-causing pathogens and fecal material wherever they go. But what most people don't seem to know is that one cockroach indicates a much larger problem.
Cockroaches are good at hiding. They hate open spaces and prefer tight, dark, and damp areas. They stay out of sight, so if you see even one single cockroach in your house, you have an infestation! This is because of the way cockroaches invade. Female cockroaches are born pregnant. This means it doesn't even take two roaches to start a full-blown infestation. The cockroach rule of one states that if you see a single cockroach you have - or you will soon have - a total roach infestation on your hands.
