Wood Roach

wood roach

SIZE: 7/8″-1 1/5″

COLOR: Chestnut Brown


The wood roach is an outdoor species which can only rarely survive indoors. Outdoors they are usually found under the loose bark of dead trees, in tree holes and in wood piles. However, they have been found under cedar-shake shingles and siding.


Control is seldom required indoors because the species usually does not survive indoors. Preventive pest control is what is usually required. This consists of sealing exterior cracks and crevices with silicone caulk, make sure all windows have tight fitting screens and all exterior vents or vent openings are screened.
