Roach infestations (large or small) can be eliminated by using any
of a variety of pest control tools including bug sprays, roach baits,
insecticide dusts. Knowing which type of roaches you have in your home
will give you better information on its natural habitat, how it enters
your home, its preferred foods. Each roach elimination job might
require a different method for controlling roaches.

The information for roaches should help not only identify pests but also help
to differentiate types of roaches that are given common or incorrect
names. To many people, any large roach, roaches that live primarily
outdoors or any cockroach that is not a German Cockroach is considered a woods
roach. The wood roach is a distinct species of roach, not a group of
bugs. However, many pest control experts do consider roaches that are not
German roaches to belong to a generic "large roach" or "outdoor
roach" because their primary source is the outdoors. "Water
bugs" is a term many people use to describe German Cockroaches. There
are no roach pests that are technically water bugs. When our
customers say that water bugs are a problem in their home, we can usually assume
that they have an infestation of German Roaches.
