Cockroaches and the Wintertime Blues
To have survived over 300 million years on earth pretty much guarantees that cockroaches are here to stay whether it’s summer in the city of a winter wonderland.
Four species of cockroaches make the U.S. their home; German, American, Oriental, and Brown-Banded. Each has their own tolerance for surviving winter temperatures.
The American cockroach has a difficult time during the winter, which is why you’ll find them making their move to the inside during the cold months.
Oriental cockroaches have a higher tolerance for cold temperatures but that’s not to say you won’t find them in places such as basements and crawl spaces.
German cockroaches need water, food, and humidity and they’re good to go for the winter. If your home provides all three, you can expect these unwanted wintertime guests.
Last but not least, the brown-banded cockroach is a high roller, meaning, it likes to reside in high places. They like to be near sources of heat, such as stoves, ovens, heat vents, floor heaters, fireplaces, etc.
