Are These Cockroaches In My North Texas Home?

Maybe you’ve found an odd-looking bug in your North Texas home or just suspect that you could have roaches, but how do you know for sure? Along with identifying cockroaches by appearance, some of the signs of a roach infestation in North Texas include: 

  • Musty odor: Cockroaches emit a musty, unpleasant odor that comes from the pheromones in their droppings. While it may be more difficult to smell with smaller infestations, you may notice a strong, musty odor lingering around your home as the infestation grows. 
  • Droppings: Roach droppings are one of the most obvious signs of a cockroach problem, and their fecal matter may resemble specks of dirt, coffee grounds, or even pepper. 
  • Discarded or shed skin: Cockroaches may shed their skin more than five times before they reach adulthood, and this discarded skin can get left behind in your house. 
  • Egg casings: Roaches lay eggs in large egg casings, and they discard the casings once the eggs hatch. 
  • Live or dead roaches: The easiest way to tell if you’ve got a roach infestation is if you find live or dead roaches. While markings and size can vary by the type of cockroach, most roaches have flat, oval-shaped bodies, brown coloring, and are oily to the touch.

Why Is It So Bad To Have Cockroaches In My North Texas Home?

Nobody likes sharing their space with cockroaches, but are these pests dangerous? Unfortunately, cockroaches are more than just a nuisance-they can also be harmful to North Texas homeowners. Cockroaches carry bacteria and pathogens like salmonella, streptococcus, and staphylococcus.

Contracting some of these pathogens may lead to nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, or even cholera. They also trigger asthma or allergic reactions in many people. The saliva, discarded skin, and droppings all contain an enzyme that can cause allergies and asthma attacks in some people, especially younger children.

Can I Get Rid Of Roaches In My North Texas House On My Own?

Once they infest your home, cockroaches won’t go away on their own, and they can be extremely difficult for homeowners to combat by themselves. Not only do cockroaches reproduce quickly, with a single female roach laying close to forty eggs at a time, but they’re also great at hiding.

Cockroaches can hide in the tiniest cracks and crevices of your home – like wall voids, under appliances, or even inside furniture. For these reasons, the best way to get rid of cockroaches in North Texas is with help from Adams Exterminating Company.

We’ve been serving the North Texas area and surrounding counties for years, and we’ve dealt with cockroach infestations, both big and small.

How Can I Prevent Future Cockroach Infestations In My Home?

Cockroaches can be difficult to prevent, but there are some practices you can implement to lower the risk of these pests in your home, such as: 

  • Keep any leftovers or food items sealed in packages or containers. 
  • Use a lid to seal your garbage cans (both indoors and out).
  • Get rid of excess clutter lying around your home, as this can give roaches more places to hide and go unnoticed.
  • Don’t forget to check under and behind appliances when cleaning up food scraps or crumbs.
  • Address plumbing problems and drainage issues, like leaky faucets or pipes.
  • Use caulk or foam to seal tiny cracks and crevices in walls, near doorways, or around the foundation of your home.
  • Carefully inspect used or secondhand items, like furniture or appliances, before you bring them into your home.

These tips will help reduce the chances of cockroaches in your North Texas home. However, if roaches make their way past your defenses, remember to call Adams exterminating company for complete cockroach control.
