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
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 professional roach extermination services in Dallas
are exactly what you need for peace of mind.
Common Cockroaches Found in North America
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
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.
Also known as black beetles, oriental cockroaches are more sluggish than
other species. 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.
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
Easily 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.
