Tucson Oriental Cockroaches Exterminator | Control & Removal Service

Oriental Cockroaches

Oriental cockroaches, also known as water bugs or black beetles, are a common pest found in cooler, damp environments like basements and drains. Their preference for dark, moist areas makes them a frequent problem in both residential and commercial properties in Tucson. Bill’s Home Service offers targeted extermination and control strategies for effectively managing Oriental cockroach infestations.


  • Color: Dark brown to almost black.
  • Size: Typically about 1 to 1.25 inches in length.
  • Body: Oval, somewhat flattened body with a glossy appearance.


Oriental cockroaches are less agile and slower than other cockroach species. They are often found in areas with high moisture and prefer to live in debris and clutter. Unlike other cockroaches, they are not good climbers and are usually found on lower floors or basements.


Oriental cockroaches are known to spread various pathogens as they move through decaying matter and then into homes and food storage areas. These pathogens can include bacteria that cause food poisoning and other illnesses. Their presence also contributes to unpleasant odors and can exacerbate allergies and asthma in susceptible individuals.

Control Measures 

Managing Oriental cockroach infestations effectively involves:

  • Moisture Control: Reduce humidity levels and fix leaky pipes to make environments less hospitable.
  • Exclusion: Seal entry points such as cracks in walls, gaps around doors, windows, and where utility lines enter.
  • Sanitation: Keep potential food sources tightly sealed and remove trash regularly.

Bill’s Home Service provides comprehensive solutions for Oriental cockroach control, combining advanced baiting techniques with environmental modifications to both eliminate current infestations and prevent future occurrences.
