Pictures Of Water Bugs And Cockroaches

The cockroach belongs to the non-vector arthropod category, class Insecta. There is a total of 4,000 species known worldwide and out of these, only 335 are found in the United States of America. They have been on earth for at least 280 million years and due to their ability to adapt themselves, they are extremely common. Have you ever thought of what the difference between water bug and cockroach is? Both are pests, no doubt but there are differences in appearance, behavior and habitat. But before we go into all that, let me tell you that waterbugs and cockroaches clean themselves with their front legs by bringing water or a wet surface to their mouth. Today we’ll take a close look about both of these pests. Over the years, my labs have been sent a number of reports from homeowners, apartment managers and pest control technicians referring to insects as water bugs and cockroaches. This is more than an error of semantics. The name given to these pests can determine their fate. Non-professionals often make the mistake of identifying a water bug or roach as a German cockroach when they aren’t.

Pictures Of Water Bugs And Cockroaches

Water bugs and cockroaches are some of the most common pests found in homes and businesses alike. While it may be tempting to try to remove them yourself, it is best to call a professional exterminator who knows how to handle these pests.

Water Bugs

The brown marmorated stink bug, also known as a water bug or shield bug, is a shield-shaped insect that can grow up to 1 inch long. They are most often brown or black in color with white stripes on their abdomen and thorax. They feed on plants and trees by sucking out the juice from leaves and fruit. Water bugs can be found in gardens, farmlands, woodlands and wetlands throughout North America.


Cockroaches are one of the most common household pests in America today. Cockroaches can cause harm to humans through allergic reactions triggered by their saliva or feces. They can also spread diseases like salmonella and dysentery when they come into contact with food or surfaces that humans use for preparing food such as dishes and countertops. Cockroaches prefer warm climates where they can find plenty of food sources such as garbage cans or dumpsters outside homes or restaurants.

Cockroaches and water bugs are two of the most common types of pests in homes. While cockroaches can cause allergies and asthma, water bugs don’t pose much risk to humans.

Water bugs are also known as toe-biters, slaters, or dobsonflies. They are found in freshwater habitats across the world, but they’re especially prevalent in North America.

They’re mostly nocturnal and eat insects near the water’s edge or on land during warmer months. The larvae live underwater for about five years before maturing into adults and flying off to find mates. Water bugs are capable swimmers who can stay underwater for up to an hour at a time.

Water bugs aren’t dangerous except when they bite humans—then they can cause intense pain and swelling similar to that caused by a bee sting. If bitten, you should wash the area immediately with soap and water; then apply ice packs if necessary to reduce swelling and inflammation before seeing a doctor if you experience any symptoms like fever or pain that lasts more than three days after being bitten by a water bug.”
