Types of Roaches Found in Houston

The roach is a beetle-like insect that eats organic materials, including human food and plants. Texas is the home of about thirty species of cockroaches. However, only five make their home in the Houston area. If you find a roach in your home or business, it’s most likely one of the following:

  • American cockroach
  • German cockroach
  • Oriental cockroach
  • Brown-banded cockroach
  • Smokey Brown cockroach

American roaches are one of the most common. They are bigger than other species and like to hide inside your home. You can identify these roaches by looking for a figure-eight shape on their head.

Signs You Have an Infestation of Roaches

Roaches love the dark. They’ll quickly scurry away if you turn on a light. If you’ve seen this occur, you can investigate to determine whether you have an infestation. Using a flashlight, look in the following places:

  • Kitchen and bathroom cabinets
  • Around light fixtures
  • Under kitchen appliances

If roaches are in your home, you’ll notice streaks of dark dust left behind where they’ve fed. As the infestation grows and their nest becomes crowded, roaches may begin coming into the light more often. When this happens, it’s time to call Rainbow Pest Control for immediate treatment.


Exterminating Roaches in Houston

Once they have invaded your home, roaches can be challenging to remove. Many of these pests resist most commercial pesticides, making it crucial for you to call a professional exterminator to remove your infestation.
An experienced exterminator will provide the best solution for removing roaches from your home or business. Rainbow Pest Control uses safe methods to eliminate the pests in your home.
We’ll treat the exterior of your home to stop roaches from entering and use a special spray on the interior. This spray will kill adults and eggs before they hatch. It’s the best method to end the multiplication of these unwanted visitors after they’ve invaded.


Prevent Roaches from Entering Your Home

Once our team eliminates your roach problem, take the necessary steps to prevent them from returning. Keeping your home clean is the first step since roaches love unsealed food, scraps, and crumbs.
Although removing all of the moisture and water from your home is impossible, take care of any broken plumbing fixtures. Leaky pipes and high humidity levels will provide roaches with enough water to survive for weeks.
Sealing up any entry points is another step to preventing a roach infestation. However, it’s important to note that roaches can squeeze through tiny cracks and crevices you may not see.
