Cockroaches are known to be one of the most difficult types of pests to remove from a home. These small insects can squeeze their narrow bodies through small openings and tight spaces and can hide in almost any hard-to-reach place of a home. Most people who think they have one or two roaches inside their homes end up having a severe cockroach infestation, with several hundred roaches living behind the walls of their homes. 

Adams Exterminating understands the unique behaviors of roaches. We know all their favorite hiding spots and how to get to the root cause of a cockroach infestation. Keep reading to learn the secret to total cockroach control in Dallas

Types Of Cockroaches: Identifying Common Species

The German cockroach is one of the most common roaches found in Dallas. This roach is smaller than most roach species and measures around 1/2 inch long. They typically have tan bodies with two dark-colored lines running side-by-side down their back. 

The American cockroach is another common species in this area. This roach is one of the biggest roaches in the area and can measure over 2 inches long. Its body is usually reddish-brown and has a yellow marking near its head. This type of roach has wings and can fly long distances but usually chooses to walk. 

The oriental cockroach has a unique appearance. It usually measures around 1/2 inch long and has a wide body that is dark brown or black. This roach has a glossy appearance and always looks like it is wet. The male roaches have long wings that allow them to fly short distances. The female oriental cockroach has small wings but is not able to fly. 

If you are unsure about what types of roaches are in your home, a cockroach control expert can help you identify them. 

Health Risks And Property Damage: The Hazards Of Cockroaches

Cockroaches are notorious for spreading diseases throughout homes, especially around the kitchen and food preparation areas. These small insects can spread salmonella, E. coli, and other harmful pathogens to you through their urine and feces, but they can also contaminate your food just by walking over it; this is why it is so important to practice good hygiene and cleaning habits for your home. 

Some roaches chew on certain fabrics and other materials, like paper and cardboard. While the damage may not be severe, no one wants to see tiny holes in their favorite shirt or book. If you see even one cockroach in your home, a professional cockroach exterminator can help get rid of it to prevent the roaches from becoming too problematic.
