In Virginia, the most common cockroaches include German Cockroaches, American Cockroaches, Oriental Cockroaches, and Wood Cockroaches.
German Cockroach are the most common roach found in homes and businesses. They prefer nocturnal activities and invade inside looking for food, water and favorable climates. Adults are light brown or tan with two black stripes directly behind their head. They opt for their fast running instead of clumsy flying with their rarely used wings.
American Cockroaches are one of the larger roach species and they are reddish brown or mahogany colored and feature behind the head, a yellowish colored band on their bodies. They are drawn to warm, moist areas and come inside to escape cold temperatures.
Oriental Cockroach are a shiny black or dark brown color, and though they are primarily an outdoor roach living beneath leaf litter, rocks, mulch, other outdoor debris, they will come inside and nest in crawlspaces, storm drains, wall voids, floor drains, sewers and other moist areas.
Wood Roaches have physical similarities to German cockroaches and prefer to live outside under piles of wood or the loose bark of trees as well as inside decaying logs and large branches. Unlike German roaches who will make indoor living permanently, if these roaches get inside buildings, they usually make their way out.
