Cockroaches are one of the grossest pests that walk around your home. Most people don’t want anything to do with them and when you see one that is in your home you probably panic. Cockroaches are known to spread bacteria and disease around your home. They walk around trash and outdoor areas and carry those into your home and across the counters. They spread the bacteria easily just by walking along surfaces in your home and then you come along and touch those surfaces. They also can cause people that suffer from asthma to have trouble breathing. When they start to die off their dead body can slowly decay and drift into the air. You want to do all that you can to keep them out of your home since they are very sneaky and will stay hidden. They stay under cupboards and appliances in your home during the daytime and come out at night to search for food. This makes them much harder to catch and they can go unnoticed for some time. Fortunately, there are several things that you can do to prevent cockroaches from getting in your house.

Species of Cockroaches

Different Kinds of Cockroaches:
There are three kinds of cockroaches that you will see most often around your Sturbridge, MA home. One of them is the American cockroach and they are one of the largest species of cockroach that you are going to see. They have a pair of wings but choose to run rather than fly. You may also see a German cockroach that is much smaller but is more common and found in many homes. They are winged as well and will fly if they want to get away. Finally, you are likely to see an Oriental cockroach that is easy to identify because of their dark shiny black coloring. They are found more commonly in the outdoors near trash bins feeding on the trash and garbage.
