Although the American cockroach mostly resides outside, it is pretty common to find them in large numbers in the home as well. The American cockroach is mostly found in the sewers and drainage systems, and in any place that is shady, dark and humid. They mostly move into houses from the gutters when they have a food shortage or there are changes in the climate, especially in winter since they prefer a warmer temperature.
One of the biggest problems of this particular pest is its size. Given the fact that it is so small, they can very easily crawl from under doors and from the smallest of nooks and crannies. Once they have entered your home, places you will most likely come across them are the kitchen, as it contains lots of food, lots of garbage, and damp sites like the sink. They also gather in bathrooms, laundry rooms and other places that have moisture.

The American Cockroach likes to feed on dead decaying material, as well as crumbs and bits of food lying around the house. But that does not mean they do not feed on human food. If you leave your meals open they will likely be attacked by these pests as well.
Not only do they contain tones of germs and bacteria from the sewers and gutters they come from, but they also urinate in most places, and release saliva which is known to cause allergic reactions and asthma attacks to anybody coming in contact.
An easy way to identify the American Cockroach infestation is their eggs and droppings which they leave everywhere they have been. These eggs are of capsule shapes, brown in color, and are usually found stuck to surfaces. As for the droppings, these are black, small and blunt ended. Another easy way to identify them is by their smell, but most cannot differentiate it.
