The Turkistan cockroach is the most prolific in St. George, Hurricane, and surrounding communities. Typically local home and business owners will call once the nymphs (juvenile roaches) are seen. Below is a great picture of a nymph and an adult. The nymphs are a deep red with a black rear end. They will have this look throughout their juvenile life. The yellowish tan roach is the full grown Turkistan cockroach and they too can fly…poorly. Unfortunately this roach has a very high breeding potential and is the primary reason for monthly or every-other month service plans.
