Cockroaches

Cockroaches are one of the most despised pests in Toronto, and with good reason. These nocturnal insects are not only dirty, but they also carry diseases and can trigger allergies in some people. There are four main species of cockroaches that are found in Toronto homes and businesses:

German roaches, American cockroaches, Oriental cockroaches, and Brown-banded cockroaches. Wood cockroaches are also found in some parts of the city, but they are not as common as the other four species. German roaches are by far the most abundant type of cockroach in Toronto. They are small, about 1/2 to 5/8 inch long, and light brown in colour. German roaches typically live indoors near food sources and reproduce rapidly. A female German roach can lay up to 50 eggs at a time, and a single infestation can quickly grow out of control if not treated properly.

American cockroaches are much larger than German roaches, measuring 1 to 2 inches long. They are reddish-brown in colour and have a distinctive yellow band around the edge of their body. American cockroaches typically live outdoors but will come indoors if there is a food source available. These cockroaches are not as prolific breeders as German roaches, but a single infestation can still grow to be quite large if left untreated.

Oriental cockroaches are black or dark brown, and can grow up to 2 inches long. Cockroaches are attracted to food and moisture, so they are often found in kitchens and bathrooms. They can also be found in other areas of homes and businesses if there is food or moisture present.
