What Do Cockroaches Look Like?

Cockroaches come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have three body parts – head, thorax, and abdomen – plus six long legs, two long antennae, and an oval-shaped body covered with a hard exoskeleton. The most common species found in Southern California is the American cockroach which can grow up to 2 inches long with reddish-brown coloration.

Cockroach Prevention Methods

The best method to prevent cockroaches from invading your home is to eliminate any sources of food or water they may feed on. This includes regularly cleaning kitchen surfaces; sealing cracks or crevices where roaches may enter; disposing off garbage appropriately; storing pet food securely; keeping food containers sealed tightly; fixing any leaky pipes or fixtures; vacuuming regularly; washing dishes immediately after use; and using dehumidifiers if there’s too much moisture in your house.
