Oriental Roaches are one of many varieties of cockroach. Like most other roaches, Oriental Roaches are attracted to homes that offer moist, dark hiding spots, perfect for breeding and feeding. Their preferred food source is decomposing vegetation and garbage, which they often find in drains and other plumbing fixtures, as well as pantries and cabinets.
Once an Oriental Roach finds a haven in your home, they will quickly multiply and cause an infestation. The primary risk associated with an infestation comes from the pathogens these pests carry, which can contaminate food and water sources in the home. In addition, they are a nuisance and cause a natural unpleasant odor. Because Oriental Roaches hide and breed in hard-to-reach areas, we recommend allowing a pest control professional to leverage their tools and experience to resolve the problem.
