Expert Cockroach Exterminators In Austin

Cockroaches are one of the most common pests in American homes. These pesky creatures are strong, resilient, and sneaky invaders in Austin properties. Exterminating them is not easy, as they multiply quickly and are well adapted to living between human populations. 

An Austin home holds the record of being infested with 50,000 cockroaches. The national news coverage of this cockroach-infested home in 1975 established Austin’s reputation as a cockroach paradise, or the capital of cockroaches, which is not surprising considering the growing population of roaches in the city.

If you suspect a cockroach infestation, use a professional Austin pest control service to deal with the problem. Contact Stampede Pest Control today to get started!

Common Cockroaches in Austin

The following are some of the most common species of cockroaches found in Austin homes: 

American Cockroach (Periplaneta americana)

The American cockroach is the largest roach species, sometimes larger than 2 inches in length. It has a reddish-brown appearance and a yellow band outlining the top of its head. While American cockroaches are less likely to invade your home, they may enter through cracks or crevices.

German Cockroach (Blattella germanica)

German cockroaches may not be as big as American cockroaches, but they are more likely to invade homes. They are light brown or tan in color and feature two black horizontal stripes running along their backs. Like other roach species, German cockroaches reproduce quickly, so they may be difficult to exterminate.

Oriental Cockroach (Blatta orientalis)

Oriental roaches have dark brown to black coloration and a shiny appearance. They typically live outdoors, but oriental cockroaches can make their way inside the home. Dark, damp areas, including crawl spaces, basements, and spaces under the sink or washing machine are especially attractive.

Smoky Brown Cockroach (Periplaneta fuliginosa)

Deriving its name from its shiny, brownish-black appearance, the smoky brown cockroach is another large species of cockroach that has the capability to fly. Like oriental cockroaches, smoky brown roaches thrive in dark, humid areas of the home. 

Mostly an outdoor pest living around shrubs, tree holes, and wood piles, smoky brown cockroaches may breed in the attic and crawl spaces once inside.

Why Are Cockroaches a Problem?

Cockroaches in the home pose a significant health hazard. They live in dark, moisture-rich, and filthy places, so cockroaches are carriers of various pathogens that transmit diseases.

Their feces and saliva contain allergens that might trigger asthma symptoms or allergic reactions in humans. 

Consuming food contaminated by cockroaches might lead to food poisoning, diarrhea, or diseases like salmonella, staphylococcus, or streptococcus.

Lastly, their droppings and urine may damage household items, resulting in expensive repairs. 

A full-blown roach infestation may give off a strong, lingering, pungent odor- a telltale sign of their presence in your home. Cockroaches breed quickly and are challenging to eliminate. Extermination should target all the life stages of cockroaches to avoid re-infestation.
