Cockroaches   Photo


German cockroaches, American cockroaches, and smoky brown cockroaches are types of roaches that home and business owners in Texas deal with on a year-round basis. They move into our homes on their own, or more commonly, we unknowingly introduce them. Cockroaches move from place to place by hitchhiking in things like boxes, furniture, appliances, and deliveries. These pests can be introduced into any structure, meaning any of our Humble homes are susceptible to cockroaches.

When it comes to cockroaches, it is important to understand why we should never tolerate them, even for a day, in our homes or businesses. These pests are much more than a nuisance; they are a significant danger to people, our food sources, and our property. Before coming into your home and once they're there, cockroaches hang out in less than sanitary areas like trash, sewers, drains, decaying vegetation, and damp areas around toilets and tubs. On their bodies, cockroaches carry bacteria, parasites, and pathogens that make people ill. They also emit a musty, unpleasant odor, chew holes in fabrics, and contaminate food. At the first sign of these pests in your house, take action to eliminate them as quickly as possible by partnering with a local and experienced professional!

To make your home as unattractive to cockroaches as possible, we want to provide you with the following prevention tips:

  • Regularly vacuum and dust your house to pick up the crumbs that cockroaches like to feast on.

  • Place all trash bags in containers with tight-fitting lids.

  • Clean up uneaten pet food daily.

  • Eliminate excess water that attracts cockroaches by repairing leaky pipes, ensuring good ventilation, and using dehumidifiers.

  • Inspect secondhand furniture, appliances, and other items for cockroaches before bringing them into your home.
