Losing a battle for living space? Cockroaches live in a wide range of environments around the world. There are about 3,000 species of cockroaches in the world. Cockroaches have a broad, flattened body and a relatively small head. They are generalized insects, with few special adaptations, and may be among the most primitive living neopteran insects. Cockroaches prefer different habitats depending on the species. The three most common are the German cockroach, the American cockroach and the Brown-banded cockroach. German cockroaches prefer dark and warm areas in your home, near sources of food and water. American and Oriental cockroaches prefer coolers areas, such as basements and crawl spaces. Brownbanded cockroaches prefer drier areas, such as pantries and closets.
Cockroaches are among the most undesirable insect intruders in the home. They are associated with filth and unsanitary conditions, although they occasionally invade the best kept homes. Remember, the best way to get rid of roaches naturally is to keep your house clean.
