Cockroaches are one of the most difficult pests to control and a popular Houston pest we get service calls for.
Cockroaches are one of the most common reasons people obtainprofessional pest control services. It is believed that Texas has atleast 40 species of cockroaches.
There are 5 species of major importancein the Houston area with at least one new one pushing very hard to makeit 6. They are the American Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroach, German Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach and the Smoky Brown Cockroach.
It may notbe long before the Asian Cockroach makes the list of important cockroach species. Each species has peculiar behavior patterns making it moredifficult to eliminate one species over another.
This is but one of themany reasons to select a professional over taking the do-it-yourself approach.
Cockroaches feed on most anything that you do and a lot of things you would not. Not only is the sight of one repulsive but their cast-off skins have been implicated as one of the causes of asthma in humans.
Their movement in and around food preparation/serving areas allows the spread of some pathogens that cause diarrhea, food poisoning and dysentery.
They are known to contaminate food with their bodies, thedroppings they leave behind and bacteria.
