American Cockroach (Part 2)

What does the American cockroach look like:
The American roach has a reddish-brown color with pale yellow lines behind their heads. These are very large roaches growing up to 3 inches. The adult roaches have wings whereas the younger roaches do not. This is often the only way to tell the difference between adults and their immature counterparts.

To help prevent these roaches from invading your home there are some things you can do. Caulk areas where they can enter your home. Keep decaying debris away from your foundation. Roaches enter homes in search of water and food so keep your home clean of crumbs and check pipes for these roaches.
