December 30, 2022 - Cockroaches

Nobody likes seeing cockroaches in their home, including you. The sight of a roach can cause considerable drama, and can also worry homeowners about how bad their roach problem might be. Unfortunately, the longer roaches are in your home, the more there will be.

How To Tell If You Have A Cockroach Problem In Your Home

Here are some ways that you may identify a potential roach infestation:

  • You see the actual bugs, either dead or alive. They often come out at night.
  • You see roach egg cases anywhere in your home.
  • You see signs of roach droppings. Droppings are found where roaches frequent.
  • You smell them. Roaches have a distinct smell. 
  • You see smudges on walls, especially near baseboards. Roaches leave dirty tracks.

There are a lot of ways to tell if you have cockroaches, but only one way to absolutely get rid of them.

Contact us today if you see signs of cockroach infestation, to discover how we can help you successfully rid your home of cockroaches!

Why Cockroach Infestations Are Such A Health Hazard

Cockroaches love filth. They actually thrive in it. Because of this, cockroaches are well known for spreading diseases, including E. coli infections, and salmonellosis. They are also known to cause allergies, or to provoke existing allergies. The more roaches you have in your home, the more they pose a risk of bringing diseases and health concerns into your home. 

Do not take a chance with cockroaches and your health. Texas Termite Exterminators knows how to kill cockroaches. Let us work with you to get roaches out of your home. Contact us today, and let us impress you with our skill and history of customer satisfaction!

Factors That Attract Cockroaches Into Your Home

What attracts cockroaches? Roaches are generally on the hunt for four things:

  • Food: This is one of the primary reasons roaches will come, and stay, in your home.
  • Moisture: Roaches like food and drink, especially if they can find both in the same area.
  • Warmth: Roaches tend to move inside structures when cooler weather arrives.
  • Safety: If roaches find a warm, safe place with food and water, they’ll stay for sure.

Leaving outside lights on at night can actually attract cockroaches as well, but if the other four factors are present they may come anyway. 

Texas Termite Terminators does not want cockroaches to come into your home, but if they do, we can take care of them. Call us today if you see cockroaches and want to get them out of your home. Pest control for roaches is one of our specialties!

The Best Way To Get Rid Of Cockroaches In Your Home

Roaches can be tricky to control. They are hardy insects that reproduce quickly and hide well. Houston’s humid subtropical environment is perfect for them. There are many DIY products that can help in the fight against roaches, but treatments must be thorough, and thus it is critical to understand the scope of the infestation in order to be able to treat them the most effectively. That is why it is best to get professional eyes on the problem. Professional pest control can detect all signs of cockroach infestation and quickly gain an understanding of the entire scope of the problem. 

Ineffective treatments guarantee that roaches will survive, and nobody wants that. When you see roaches you want them gone, and so does Texas Termite Terminators. We are the professionals to call in the Houston area. With our years of experience, we know how to identify the size and scope of cockroach infestations, and we know the best treatments for them.
