Differences between cockroaches and water bugs include:

  • Size: Cockroaches are slightly smaller than water bugs, which can grow up to two inches long
  • Habitat: As their name implies, water bugs largely live in water, while cockroaches prefer land
  • Diet: Cockroaches are scavengers and will eat almost anything, whereas water bugs are hunters that eat other insects
  • Temperament: Surprisingly, cockroaches are shy and will run away from humans, while water bugs have a painful bite that they use when threatened
  • In addition to the differences listed above, cockroaches are considered a true pest because they spread diseases that can be harmful to humans. While water bugs can bite, they are not considered to be pests because they feed only on other insects. That being said, a water bug is not a welcome sight, and many water bugs can be an unsightly problem to have in your home.

Elite Termite & Pest Control is here to help.

Our technicians are highly trained in effective and safe cockroach and water bug control methods. When we first inspect your home, we will do our best to find the source of the infestation and craft our approach to treating the root of the problem, rather than just the symptoms. Once we have a handle on the scope of your pest problem, we will make recommendations as to treatment options for your home. One method we use is a bait trap that attracts cockroaches and effectively kills them. Depending on your needs, we may recommend different kinds of baits, such as granules, gels, or liquids. We work hard to ensure that your pets and children are safe without compromising the effectiveness of our extermination methods.
