Are cockroaches common in Indiana?

Yes, cockroaches are fairly common in Indiana. The most common cockroach species found here are the American Cockroach and the German Cockroach.

American Cockroaches

American Cockroaches are the largest species of cockroach in Indiana. Adults grow up to 2 inches in length and reddish-brown in color. Although large in size, they're quite fast runners and are capable of flying, if you weren't terrified enough already.

These pests are also known as sewer cockroaches, since they prefer warm, damp spaces like sewer systems and plumbing. If you ever find one of these pests inside your home or business, you're most likely to spot them near the bathroom or any other room with a drain. They will typically make their way through the sewer system to gain access to your home or business.

Dangers of American Cockroaches

American Cockroaches or "sewer cockroaches" pose a greater threat to you, your family, and/or you business because they bring dangerous sewage germs, bacteria, and allergens with them. Cockroaches are notoriously hard to kill as well.

German Cockroaches

The German Cockroach is the most common of the structure infesting cockroaches in the United States. Adults don't grow nearly as large as American Cockroaches (only 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch) nor are they able to fly.

They can be spotted throughout various human-occupied spaces, but prefer warm and humid locations such as kitchens and bathrooms. This cockroach is very persistent and often difficult to exterminate.

German Cockroaches are most often associated with infestations in restaurants, food processing facilities, hotels, nursing homes, and other occupied facilities.
