What bug looks like a roach with wings?

Question: We have a bug that looks like a roach, but its wings are light in color, someone said it was a flying roach. I do not see them fly, they are a light brown, and are out in the daytime. What is it?

Answer: Most household cockroaches have wings and several of them can fly. If it is cockroaches you can start control now. To provide you with a proper identification I would need to see a specimen. This is where your highly trained Orkin Pest Specialist comes in. Call us to set up a comprehensive inspection of your home.

A qualified Pro will assess the extent of an infestation and look for conditions conducive to cockroach infestation. Depending on the findings, they will craft a multifaceted treatment plan. The plan should target conditions that attract the roaches, identify their hiding places, and include treatment with the best scientifically developed products in the industry.
