Serving Illinois and Indiana

Cockroaches are one of the most common household pests and among the hardiest insects on the planet. Finding cockroaches in your home or business can be very disturbing, as these pests are known carriers of diseases such as Salmonella, and their droppings can trigger asthma attacks. Cockroaches breed rapidly and can be difficult to control without the help of professional cockroach exterminators.

Cockroach Removal Resources & Information

Seeing just one cockroach in your home is a sign that you may already have an infestation. Even worse, cockroaches are notoriously difficult to locate and eliminate on your own. If you suspect you have a cockroach infestation within your home, contact your local pest control experts at Anderson Pest Solutions for a free estimate.


In both Illinois and Indiana, several cockroach species are prevalent, adapting to the local environments. The most common cockroach species in these regions include:

  • German Cockroach: Recognizable by its tan to light brown color, the German cockroach is a small species often found in kitchens and bathrooms. They reproduce rapidly, making infestations challenging to control.
  • American Cockroach: Often referred to as the “palmetto bug,” the American cockroach is one of the largest species. It is reddish-brown and frequently inhabits dark, damp areas.
  • Oriental Cockroach: Dark brown to black in color, the Oriental cockroach prefers cooler and damper environments. Commonly found in basements and crawl spaces.


Some species of cockroaches can remain active for weeks without food, surviving on very limited resources. Roaches can adapt to a variety of environments, however, they typically prefer warm conditions found within homes and buildings.

Cockroach extermination can be difficult, because if you spot one cockroach, there may be hundreds more in hiding.  Roaches leave chemical trails in their feces and emit pheromones to attract mates. In this way, cockroaches are often drawn to congregate in areas together. As a result of this behavior, seeing just one cockroach almost always implicates a larger infestation. 

If you’re seeing signs of a cockroach infestation, it’s time to call the expert cockroach exterminators at Anderson Pest Solutions.


Cockroaches, while not inflicting physical damage to buildings, pose significant health concerns and prove to be persistent nuisances. Be aware of the following threats associated with cockroach infestations:

  • Food Contamination: Cockroaches can contaminate food products with their bodies and waste, posing risks to human health.
  • Unpleasant Odor: Infestations often result in a disturbing odor lingering in affected areas, impacting overall indoor comfort.
  • Vector of Disease: Foraging cockroaches act as vectors, depositing germs and bacteria in areas they infest, contributing to the spread of diseases.
  • Asthma Attacks: Cockroach infestations can trigger asthma attacks in susceptible individuals, posing a direct threat to respiratory health.

Remaining vigilant and addressing cockroach infestations promptly is crucial to mitigating these health risks and preserving a safe and comfortable living environment.

To prevent cockroach infestations, implement these essential measures:

  • Food Storage: Store food in sealed containers to prevent access for cockroaches.
  • Garbage Management: Use garbage bins with tight-fitting lids to deter cockroaches from accessing food waste.
  • Cleanliness: Maintain cleanliness in kitchen and bathroom areas by regularly sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming to eliminate potential food sources and hiding spots for cockroaches.
  • Moisture Control: Cockroaches are attracted to water, so promptly repair any moisture issues, water leaks, or dripping taps to reduce their attraction to your home.
  • Sealing Cracks and Crevices: Seal cracks and crevices around foundations, baseboards, and in between cabinets using materials like steel wool, copper mesh, or silicone-based caulk to prevent cockroaches from entering your home.
  • Weatherstripping and Door Sweeps: Install weatherstripping and door sweeps around windows, exterior doors, and garage doors to further limit entry points for cockroaches.
