We have a lot of exotic creatures in Hawaii, cockroaches aren't one of them. Most of the roaches you'll find plaguing your Hawaii home are the same roaches that plague the rest of the country. The most notable being the American cockroach. As you can imagine, this chestnut-colored roach has earned its name. It can be found in almost every nook and cranny of America. But, the American cockroach is no more prolific in the United States than cockroaches named after other places in the world, like the German cockroach and the oriental cockroach (also known as the Cyprus bug). Hawaii is also blessed to have cockroaches that only live in tropical areas. Fortunately, the only tropical cockroach you'll find getting into your home is the Surinam or "burrowing" cockroach. Though the temperate weather in Hawaii allows a wide variety of roaches to live here, these invading pests can all be resisted with the same tactics.
It isn't your imagination, rats and roach problems are on the rise in Hawaii. We're starting to get a lot more requests to deal both of these pests. The problem is not only an issue of control, but also an issue of public awareness. If stronger control measures were put into place, Honolulu and other urban centers in Hawaii could drastically reduce the harmful effects of these both rats and roaches. Another problem is that most people don't realize the serious nature of these two infesting pests. Sure, we can all agree that they're disgusting, but it is amazingly easy to turn a blind eye.
Do you live in the Roach Motel? Seriously, is there evidence of these critters getting into your home as guests and staying as long as they like? In your home they can find food, water and shelter. This is the perfect place for them, as far as they are concerned. This is the worst place for them to be, as far as your family is concerned.
