Customized Treatment for Guaranteed Results
Cockroaches are extremely resilient pests that can't just be removed with DIY treatments. This is why most 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.
Roach extermination requires a comprehensive approach tailored to each situation, which is why our technicians offer a wide variety of the best cockroach extermination treatments:
- Dusting treatments
- Roach baiting stations
- Stepped-up sanitation
- And more!
Due to the impact it can have on your family and the environment, we do not use roach fumigation methods, also known as 'bug bombs'—instead relying on much safer and more effective methods.
When To Call The Professionals
In addition to seeing a cockroach during 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.
If you are noticing any of these signs or are looking to inspect your home just in case, now is the best time to reach out to our team of experienced roach exterminators.
Identifying The Types of Cockroaches
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.
