Cockroaches   Photo


Cockroaches are an invasive species of insect that live in a wide variety of indoor and outdoor environments. They are social insects and usually live together in large groups. Adults have semi-hard, oval-shaped, flat bodies. Their heads are small in size compared to their bodies. Most species are winged, but not all are capable of flying. Their six legs are covered in spines and are sensitive to touch. Their antennae are usually just as long or longer than their bodies.
Inside buildings, cockroaches are found living and nesting in a variety of different locations including above ceilings, in attics, inside crawlspaces, behind large electrical appliances, near pipes and faucets, and in basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens.

Cockroaches are scavengers and feed on a variety of food and non-food (toothpaste, paper, glue) items. These insects are dangerous pests, as they carry a large number of viruses, bacteria, and parasites on their bodies, legs, and in their feces. In addition, their shed skins and excrement can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks in people, especially children.

To prevent problems with roaches in your Dallas/Fort Worth business, it is important to inspect your building’s exterior and seal spaces in its foundation, place weather stripping around windows and doors, make sure door sweeps are installed, repair leaky pipes and fixtures, use dehumidifiers, store food inside air-tight containers or inside the refrigerator, and inspect used furniture, appliances, and all packages for cockroaches before bringing them into your business.
