Cockroaches in Minnesota
There are four (4) main types of Cockroaches that infest homes and buildings in Minnesota. They are: the German Cockroach, the American Cockroach, the brownbanded Cockroach and the Oriental Cockroach. Below please find descriptions for two of these types.
The brownbanded Cockroach is found in homes or other buildings. As an adult these pests will reach about ½ inch long. The males and females appear different, with the male having a long slender body, while the female has a pear shaped body. The male’s wings extend past the end of the body and the female’s wings are shorter than its body. All brownbanded Cockroaches have yellow bands which run horizontally to their bodies.
Additionally, the Oriental Cockroach can be found in homes and other buildings in Minnesota. This pest is dark brown to black and is approximately 1 to 1 ¼ inches long. Both males and females will have shorter wings than their bodies. It is said to carry a strong odor and will usually be found near a water source, in a garbage pile, in a damp basement or near a water pipe.
