Lake Conroe's Secret To Effective Cockroach Control


Cockroaches are common pests in our area, although your neighbors may not want to admit they have a problem with these pests. Homeowners often assume these insects only invade rundown homes or that they are a reflection of their housekeeping skills, but roaches aren't overly picky about where they live. If you have trouble getting rid of cockroaches, you have come to the right place.

This article will describe the most common roaches that invade homes in Lake Conroe and the dangers that accompany them. We'll also explain why even clean homes can have cockroaches. Continue reading to learn how to achieve successful cockroach control in your Lake Conroe home with the experts from Chase Pest & Termite Control.

Common Types Of Roaches Found In Lake Conroe

The first step in dealing with a roach infestation is identifying the invading species. In general, these pests are oval-shaped and have six spiny legs, antennae, and wings (that they may or may not use to fly). The following list describes the most common types of cockroaches that invade Lake Conroe homes:

American cockroaches are reddish-brown and have a yellow figure-eight marking on the back of their heads.
German cockroaches are light brown to tan and have two dark stripes on their backs.
Smoky brown cockroaches are dark brown to black, and their wings are longer than their bodies.
Asian cockroaches are also prevalent in our area but rarely enter homes. They are nearly identical to German roaches but are stronger fliers. Contact us today at Chase Pest & Termite Control if you need assistance identifying or getting rid of cockroaches in your home.

Why It Is Considered Dangerous To Have Roaches In Your House

cockroach infestation endangers your family's health and well-being. Roaches are dirty pests that crawl through and eat all sorts of waste outdoors, including garbage, sewage, and decaying animals. As they travel through these conditions, their spiny legs and bodies pick up germs, and when they enter your home, they contaminate food and surfaces with these pathogens.

Cockroaches spread several diseases, including typhoid fever, dysentery, cholera, and E. coli infection. Their droppings and saliva can also trigger allergy symptoms and asthma attacks, so the sooner you get these pests out, the safer everyone will be.

Why Would Roaches Infest A Clean House?

One of the most common questions we get is, "Why are there cockroaches in my house?" People often associate these pests as a city problem or assume they only enter dirty homes, but roaches will infest any home that provides for their needs, mainly food, water, and shelter.

Because these insects will eat almost anything, including soap, toothpaste, and glue, and can survive a month without food, they aren't very particular about where they live. The pros at Chase Pest & Termite Control can help you determine what's attracting cockroaches to your home and how they got inside.
