Common Problems American Cockroaches Cause In Homes

It is amazing what we can put up with, especially if we're tough. And, in Texas, we're tough. We have to be. We have the diamondback rattlesnake, coral snake, copperhead, water moccasin, readheaded centipede, scorpion, black widow spider, brown recluse spider, and more. You don't even want to get us started talking about the puss caterpillar. That bug is just wrong. When mosquitoes bite us, we swat them and move on. When fire ants sting our feet, we shake them off and go back to what we were doing. And, when American cockroaches appear in our kitchens, we throw down a few traps and call it a day. But we really shouldn't. Here are some reasons we think may change your mind about ignoring American cockroaches.

That cockroach that just raced up your pantry wall at top speed wasn't in there sightseeing. It was looking for food. And you may not know this but it can chew through paper packaging, cardboard, and even thin plastic bags.

An American cockroach is just as happy in your trash cans as it is in your pantry. In fact, they will go back and forth from dirty locations to food storage areas inside your home. The cockroach you see on your counter might be the same cockroach you saw on the rim of your toilet the other day.
