Rutherford County, Tennessee is home to a variety of common cockroaches. The most frequently found cockroach species are the American cockroach and the German cockroach. These two species can create problems for homeowners due to their large size and aggressive behavior.
The American cockroach is one of the largest species of domestic roaches and can grow up to 2 inches in length. They have a reddish-brown body with a yellow figure-8 pattern on their back. They are typically found outdoors around garbage cans, sewage lines, and other warm, moist areas near water sources. In homes, they prefer dark warm places such as basements, attics and other hidden areas where it’s damp or humid.
The German cockroach is one of the smallest roach species in Tennessee. Reaching only about 1/2 inch in length when mature. They are light brown or tan in color with two dark stripes that run from head to tail along their backs. This species prefers wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms since they’re attracted to moisture. It’s also known that they often hide in cracks and crevices around cabinets, drawers and even within walls. Where they can remain undetected for long periods of time.
Cockroaches can contaminate foods by spreading bacteria through their feces and leaving behind an unpleasant odor wherever they go. Therefore it’s important to take steps for prevention against them. By cleaning up any food sources or messes that would be attractive to them located inside your home or workplace. Sealing cracks around windowsills and doors; keeping outside garbage containers sealed tightly. Also, eliminating excess moisture sources; and using insecticides if necessary.
