The Turkestan Cockroach
Did you know, that in recent years, there has been a slow takeover and invasion in the world of cockroaches. Traditionally in the states, the two major forms of large cockroach businesses had to deal with were American and Oriental cockroaches. They have been found across the country, but particularly in warm weather areas.

Now, there are new and different species of cockroach that have been found in the U.S. and Black believes that the Turkestan cockroach, which has been found in the Southwestern United States, will start to spread out to other areas. The Turkestan cockroach has been present in the U.S. since the late 1970s, so it’s not a new species, but it is gradually expanding its territory.

They key when dealing with cockroaches is to properly identify which species you are dealing with. The last thing you want to do is spend a lot of money treating for a species that you don’t have and shouldn’t be worrying about.

As for Turkestan cockroaches, they usually invade businesses or properties from the exterior and the good news is that they are not breeders once they get inside, which groups them among the insects known as occasional invaders. They are caramel colored than the darker American or Oriental roaches that are just about the same size.

Turkestan roaches can be brought into an environment through landscaping materials. The best way to combat them at your business is to notify whatever pest management company you use that you are about to receive a delivery of things like mulch or other landscaping material. That way the pest control company can do preventative treatments to stop them from getting inside.
