The nocturnal brown-banded cockroach is a domestic cockroach, depending completely on humans for food, shelter and survival. Like German cockroaches, brownbanded roaches prefer warm locations, but are also found throughout a structure, including bedrooms and within and beneath furniture. Brown-banded cockroaches prefer the upper locations of structures.
Brown-Banded Cockroach Health Threats & Concerns
Cockroaches can carry up to 33 different types of bacteria as well as parasitic worms and human pathogens. In addition to these concerns, cockroach fecal material, egg casings and the skin casing that is shed when a cockroach molts can cause allergies in adults and children, including asthma. These skin and egg casings and droppings can accumulate in wall voids and hidden locations where cockroaches congregate and hide.
