Members of the prolific order Blattodea, cockroaches are distant relatives of termites, and have diversified into over 3,000 species worldwide, with over fifty just in the United States alone. The cockroach is probably the first thing that comes to most people's mind at the word "pest." They will eat any organic matter, which makes them the perfect house pest, where they live in dark, damp corners - inside walls, kitchens and bathrooms. They are generally active at night, when they emerge from their hiding places to search for food. The most prevalent cockroach species are the American, German, and brown-banded roach. If you're seeing cockroaches in your home during daytime, this is usually a sign of a serious infestation.
