The Oriental roach is cold tolerant. Common outdoors, also found in crawl spaces, basements, sewers, drains, around pipes, and in wall and porch voids, prefer decaying foods. These roaches are often found in bathtubs because it lacks sticky pads on its feet and cannot climb the smooth sides. The Oriental cockroach has a bad odor that people associate with cockroaches.
Controlling the Problem!
To control the Oriental cockroach, you should do a perimeter pest control. In homes where a crawl space is present, a crawl space treatment is necessary.
