Understanding The Cockroach Problem: Identifying The Culprits

Cockroaches, in general, have flat, oval bodies, six legs, and two antennae. There are, however, ways to differentiate between the species. The following list describes the most common types of cockroaches that infest Honolulu homes:

American cockroaches are reddish-brown, have a yellowish figure-eight marking on the back of their heads, and are between 1 1/4 and 2 1/8 inches long.
Brown-banded cockroaches are brown with two lighter brown bands across their wings and only grow to around 1/2 an inch long. German cockroaches are light brown to tan, have two dark, almost parallel stripes on their backs behind the head, and are between 1/2 and 5/8 of an inch long.

Health Hazards Of Cockroaches: Protecting Your Family

Sometimes, the first indication of a cockroach infestation isn’t seeing the insects or their signs. Instead, it is your family ending up with health issues. Roaches in the house often cause allergy symptoms and asthma attacks, especially in young children who spend more time indoors.

Cockroaches also spread bacteria and pathogens, contaminating any food they get into and the surfaces they crawl on. Some potential illnesses roaches cause include salmonellosis, E. coli infection, cholera, and typhoid fever.
