Why It's Best To Call The Pros About Roaches In Your Frisco Home

The most common cockroaches we find infesting Frisco homes are German, American, smokybrown, and Oriental cockroaches. German roaches are the small, tan cockroaches that look like they have a dark equal sign on the backs of their heads. American cockroaches are the large chestnut-colored cockroaches that have yellow on the backs of their heads that may look like a figure eight at some angles. Smokybrown cockroaches are also large roaches, and they are a dark brown or black color. Oriental cockroaches are mid-sized roaches and are entirely black. These roaches don't just differ in appearance, they differ in other important ways. But we're not going to be focusing on what makes them different. For our topic today, it is more important to consider how they are the same.

Cockroaches Are Dirty

All pest roaches feed on rotting organic matter in drains, garbage bins, and dumpsters. They all feed on dog droppings, wildlife droppings, and climb around sewers to feed on human waste. Roaches don't just look gross; they are gross This is why they are implicated in the spread of many bacterial diseases, human pathogens, and parasitic worms. It is also why their shed skins, saliva, and feces are a source of allergens, and can cause respiratory issues for Frisco residents who have an infestation. Perhaps the most disturbing thing about cockroaches, in regards to their lack of cleanliness, are the many documented cases of cockroaches walking on the skin of medical patients and having rashes appear in these areas. Cockroaches contaminate everything they touch, including your skin at night while you're sleeping. In light of the disease threat cockroaches pose, it is best to have a licensed pest professional deal with these filthy creatures.

Cockroaches Are Plentiful

If you think it is bad to have a few dirty, tough, sneaky roaches in your home, how would you feel about having thousands? These insects can grow large populations when they find the resources to do so. As they grow in population, the threat they present to human health grows as well. You should never allow this to happen. At the first sign of a cockroach infestation, contact a licensed pest management professional. What are the signs?

  • The appearance of cockroaches is the worst sign because it means your home is filled with roaches.
  • The sound of cockroach feet on hard surfaces at night can alert you to their presence in your home.
  • This can be subtle and easily missed.
  • Tiny black specks stuck to surfaces in dark, damp, hidden places around your home.
  • Shed skins in tight spaces and dark areas.
  • Eggs cases (called ootheca).

  • Do you offer termite control?

    Yes, both our Home Guardian and Home Guardian Plus plans offer termite control using the proven Sentricon® System with Always Active™ along with a termite service warranty.

  • If your company puts out rodent poison at my house, will a rat die inside?
    Yes, this is a possibility. Ideally, we prefer to use traps on the inside and in the attic, and then place rodent poison in protected stations on the exterior (which could reduce the likelihood of having a rodent die inside). However, anytime a rodenticide is used, there is always a threat that a rat or mouse could die on the inside. If the dead rodent can be located and removed, this will fix the smell. Otherwise, we sell odor control products to help with unpleasant smells should this unfortunately occur.
  • Is your treatment safe around pets?
    Our general treatments are safe around dogs and cats – provided they do not intentionally contact or consume applied materials before they have dried. Certain pets, especially aquatic life and reptiles, are especially vulnerable to some pesticides so it is important to be especially careful while treating when these types of pets are present. We recommend these types of pets, in addition to birds, guinea pigs, and other small animals, be kept away from the treatment area until it is safe for them to return.
  • How long do I have to stay out of my home or property after treatment is performed?
    In situations where you have to be out of the property during and after treatment (flea treatment, roach clean-out service, or for health reasons, etc.), we recommend that you stay away until all products have completely dried. This is usually approximately two to four hours depending on conditions, after which time it is completely safe to re-enter the property.
