Common Cockroaches in Dallas

There are many different kinds of roaches in Texas. Here are some of the most common varieties found in the Dallas area:

German Cockroaches

German Cockroach

German cockroaches are found throughout the world. They are also commonly found in restaurants, kitchens, and stores where food and moisture are abundant. They can contaminate food, leave stains, create foul odors, and carry disease organisms. German roaches are excellent hitchhikers. Unfortunately, German roach infestations are common in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.

Smokey Brown Cockroach

Smokey Brown Cockroach

The smokey brown cockroach is commonly mistaken for a water bug. They are typically reddish to brownish black and very shiny. They can fly short distances and are attracted to lights at night. They have the reputation for being difficult to control because the species is so active and have many habitat preferences. They rarely infest the dwelling part of buildings and are instead found in sheds, wall and roof spaces, sub-floors, mulched areas, and in and around grease traps and drains.

Oriental Cockroach

Oriental Cockroach

Also known as black beetles, oriental cockroaches are more sluggish than other types of cockroaches. These roaches are common in basements, crawl spaces, porch cracks and crevices, foundations, and walkways adjacent to buildings. They feed on a wide variety of plant and animal material. The oriental cockroach breeds well in unventilated crawl spaces or basements where humidity is high.

American Cockroach

American Cockroach

Also mistaken for a water bug, the American cockroach is the largest house-infesting species at about one and one-half inches long. They have reddish-brown wings with light markings on the thorax. American roaches are quite common in Dallas and Fort Worth. Usually homeowners will see adults inside after a change in temperature or heavy rain. American roaches typically do not become a difficult issue unless they start reproducing inside the home. If you see a young American roach inside or seeing many adults, this may be a sign of infestation.

Brown Banded Cockroach

Brown Banded CockroachEasily recognized by alternating light and dark bands across its back, the brown banded cockroach doesn't multiply as fast as the German cockroach, but it is considered harder to control. They are often found high on walls in picture frames, behind molding, near appliance motors, in light switches, closets and furniture.

How Do I Get Rid of Cockroaches Permanently?

The perennial question amongst anyone who has ever had to deal with a cockroach infestation is "how can I get rid of cockroaches and keep them away for good?" While there is always a DIY option available, the bottom line is that roaches are very, very difficult to successfully get rid of (and keep them from returning) without the help of a professional pest control company. Roaches are hardy and multiply quickly, so you not only have to kill the live ones, you have to ensure that all of their eggs are destroyed as well. Plus, to truly solve the problem, you'll need to stamp it out at the source, which means finding and sealing entry points to your home, finding and fixing any moisture problems, and ensuring that food is tightly sealed. It's a big job, but it can be effectively done with the right knowledge and techniques.

Our professional and experienced pest control technicians are trained and equipped to identify the specific type of cockroach you may have and eliminate the problem. Cockroaches are better at hiding than you are at finding them, and their eggs are naturally protected from insecticides. Without special equipment, materials, and know-how, cockroach control can be a losing battle. Our roach extermination services in Dallas are exactly what you need for peace of mind.

Tips for Controlling Cockroaches

  • Keep your home clean and food crumb-free
  • Update weather stripping and seal penetration points if you are having issues with large American roaches
  • Utilize monitoring stations
  • Inspect previously used cardboard boxes if you are bringing them and/or storing them inside of your home
  • Utilize a general pest control program before roaches become an issue
