How to Identify Cockroaches
The NJ pest control experts at Viking Pest explain cockroaches found in New Jersey include the American cockroach, brown-banded cockroach German cockroach, and the Oriental cockroach. American and German cockroaches are oval-shaped, reddish-brown, have thin legs, and can grow to about 5/8 of an inch long. American cockroaches are the bigger pest of the species. They can grow to an inch and a half or longer explains Viking Pest’s certified entomologist, Craig.

The NJ pest control experts at Viking Pest explain these cockroaches prefer the warmer areas of your NJ home or business. The oriental cockroach, also known as the waterbug, is small, dark and smooth, attracted to damp areas, and about an inch in length.
What Problems Can Cockroaches Cause for New Jersey Home and Business Owners?
