We don't have to tell you that Maui is home to many roaches. There are over 19 different species of cockroaches here. That is saying something, considering that cockroaches aren't indigenous to Hawaii. Fortunately, and we say that tongue in cheek, there are only 3 species that are considered pest roaches.
We're not going to spend a lot of time discussing the three types of roaches you'll find in your Maui home because our time would be best spent talking about how to get rid of them and how to keep them out. But, it is important to know what these pest roaches look like and what dangers they present.
The three cockroaches you're most likely to find in your home are the American cockroach, the German cockroach, and Surinam cockroach, also known as the burrowing cockroach. The American cockroach is the largest of the three and has a reddish-brown coloring to its slimy body. The second largest is the Surinam cockroach with its black or dark brown coloring. The smallest of the three is the German cockroach, which has more of a tan coloring and two dark stripes running lengthwise along its body.
When pest cockroaches get into a home, they can cause illness for a family. This illness is often mistaken for the common cold or flu. If you have sickness in your home, it is important to understand that it could be cockroach-related, especially if you've been seeing or hearing cockroaches running around. It is also important to know that if you've seen one cockroach it is likely that there are hundreds more living in your home that you aren't seeing.
