American cockroaches are native to the southeastern and central United States, and are commonly found in warm, humid environments such as basements, sewers, and steam tunnels. They are also known to thrive in commercial and industrial buildings, and are often associated with food service and storage areas. They are also known to be found in greenhouses and other warm, humid environments.
While American cockroaches are typically found in warmer climates, they can survive in colder climates as well, as long as they have access to heat and moisture. This is why they can be found in heated buildings such as homes, apartments, and commercial buildings across Canada. They can also be introduced to new areas through human activity, such as travel, trade, and commerce.
It is important to note that American cockroaches are considered a nuisance pest due to their presence in buildings and homes. They can also be considered a health concern because they are known to spread bacteria and other pathogens as they move through sewage and garbage.
