Roach Control in DFW

Folks may not see eye to eye on all subjects, but everyone can agree that cockroaches are repulsive. They spread disease, multiply rapidly, and can make people uncomfortable in their own homes. In Texas, cockroaches are a persistent problem, meaning they can easily infest your home, especially if it isn't inspected regularly.

If your home has a roach problem or you want to proactively protect yourself from having one, call the roach extermination experts at Alamo Termite & Pest Control today.

Customized Treatment for Guaranteed Results

As the old joke suggests, cockroaches are survivors and quickly develop resistance to most pesticides found in grocery and hardware stores. This is why more homeowners rely on a professional roach exterminator like us to help rid them of these insects. Our technicians use the latest eradication products and methods to target roaches where they nest and disrupt their life cycles. Simply spraying around problem areas is not effective. Roach extermination requires a comprehensive approach tailored to each situation. Our technicians find that the best cockroach extermination involves the following:

  • Sprays
  • Dusts
  • Roach baiting stations
  • Traps
  • Stepped-up sanitation
  • Follow-up visits
  • Ongoing communication with our exterminators
  • And more!

 

Due to the impact it can have on your family and the environment, we do not rely on roach fumigation methods, instead relying on much safer and effective methods.

How to Identify a Cockroach Infestation

In addition to seeing a cockroach during the daylight hours, there are several other common signs of a cockroach infestation:

  • Cockroach Feces—During an infestation, cockroach droppings will be visible. The smaller roaches expel feces that look like coffee black pepper or coffee grounds. Larger roaches produce cylindrical droppings. One good indicator of the level of infestation is the number of droppings.
  • Cockroach Eggs—Known as oothecae, cockroach eggs are oval-shaped and often visible behind furniture and in small spaces, such as between books.
  • Unpleasant Odors—The third indicator of an infestation can be unpleasant smells. Many of the species emit a musty odor or strong oily scent. In addition to the odor, there may be dead cockroach carcasses scattered throughout the house.

Types of Cockroaches in Texas

There are four distinct types of cockroaches that can be found in Texas:

  • American Cockroach—The American cockroach is about 1-2 inches in length, is reddish-brown in color with a shield portion behind the head that is sometimes light brown or yellow, and can most commonly be found outside.
  • German Cockroach—German cockroaches are 5/8 inches in length, light brown in color, and have a thoracic shield behind the head which is marked with two black stripes.
  • Smoky-Brown Cockroach—The smoky-brown cockroach can range from 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches long and is dark brown to almost black in color.
  • Oriental Cockroaches—The oriental cockroach is about 1 ¼ inches long and is black or dark brown. Though they have short wings, they can not fly.

We've been with Alamo Pest Control for a year now - they are awesome. Their workers are very polite, on time and do a great job. We had an ant issue in between our bimonthly treatments and they came right out to take care of the problem. We signed up with Troy and he gave us a great explanation of our benefits, while being less expensive than the national name business in the area. Thanks so much Alamo Pest! Great job.
