Brown Banded Roach Infestation

Have a Roach Problem?
Call (800) 468-7859

Smaller than other cockroaches, about the same size as German cockroaches, brown-banded cockroaches are usually brought into your home on boxes, bags and other items from other locations that have infestations. Like other cockroaches, they are reported to spread over 30 kinds of bacteria, six types of parasitic worms and more than seven other human pathogens, brown-banded cockroaches tend to infest warmer, higher places like upper closet and pantry shelves, bathrooms, ceiling corners, the top of cabinets, behind framed artwork, ceiling corners and under chairs and in furniture drawers.

Brown-banded cockroaches eat a variety of things including glue, paste and starch
Brown-banded cockroaches consume a variety of materials including glue and paste, especially those from animal sources, some types of starch and also color dyes. Feeding evidence on stamps, envelopes, window treatments, book bindings and occasionally on wallpapers can be indicators of a brown-banded cockroach infestation. Nocturnal, brown-banded cockroaches avoid the light, so they may not be as evident to you as you might think. Brown-banded cockroaches also feed on non-food items such as hosiery, attracted presumably to body oil residue and skin flakes. Other signs of infestation may be evident in your pantry as well, in the form of chewed dried food bags and spoiled food products.

Disease-causing germs and bacteria sticking to the spines of brown-banded cockroaches’ legs is bad news for humans
Picking up germs and bacteria on their leg spines and bodies while crawling through decaying materials and sewage, brown-banded cockroaches transmit pathogens to humans through food contamination. Children suffering from asthma attacks and unknown allergies may also indicate the presence of brown-banded cockroaches in your home.

Control of brown-banded cockroaches differs from control for other cockroaches, so correct identification and control by a certified pest professional is a must. Contact your local Truly Nolen location to schedule a free inspection.

Homeowners can help prevent cockroaches entering homes
As brown-banded cockroaches often are introduced to homes through shopping bags and cardboard boxes from grocery stores, unloading boxes and bags into a designated plastic tote or some other container before carrying them into your home can help reduce the chances of brown-banded cockroaches entering your home.
