Answering Dallas' Most Frequently Asked Cockroach Questions

Cockroaches are pests that no Dallas homeowner or business owner wants to see. These filthy insects can contaminate your food and your food preparation areas, potentially leaving you or your family sick.

These insects also reproduce quickly, meaning that a small problem can become overwhelming in a short amount of time. 

At Dynasty Pest, our cockroach pest control experts often hear questions from customers about what they should expect from these pests. Our high-level customer service team is always willing to spend time answering your questions, but we especially take pride in our skills for eliminating these pests for you.

Do I Have A Roach Infestation?

The first step on how to get rid of cockroaches in Dallas is to identify the problem. Roaches often hide during the day, only emerging in the dark of night to seek water and food. This means that you might not see the actual insects scurrying around your kitchen. 

Instead, you may need to look for signs of a cockroach infestation, which include:

  • Droppings from these insects under stoves and refrigerators
  • Egg casings that are usually light brown in color
  • Discarded body parts as they molt
  • Dead insects floating in a sink or dishwasher

If you see these signs, don’t hesitate. Seek help from our team at Dynasty Pest. We can verify what you are seeing, and we then can put together a plan to eliminate them.

Can Roaches In The House Really Make You Sick?

Having an infestation of cockroaches in your home can make you and your family quite sick. Like other insects, cockroaches can bite, but they don’t need to bite you to make you ill.

These pests spend a lot of time walking through filthy conditions like garbage, compost piles, sewers, and damp drainage areas. They pick up bacteria and pathogens that they carry around on their bodies as they walk through your home.

When they are seeking food in your kitchen at night, they can deposit these dangerous pathogens on your food and on your counters, which could end up making you and your family sick when you ingest them. For this reason, an infestation of roaches is nothing to ignore.

Five Tips To Prevent Future Roach Problems In Your Home

After our team at Dynasty Pest removes the roaches from your Dallas home, you then can take steps to keep them from coming back.

  • Place tight lids on your garbage cans and compost piles.
  • Fix dripping or leaking pipes that serve as a source of water for these pests.
  • Seal up any cracks or gaps in your home’s foundation.
  • Keep your food in tightly sealed containers.
  • Do not leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight.

Our team can give you some specific tips about keeping cockroaches away that fit your property’s layout as well.

The Most Effective Way To Eliminate A Roach Problem In Your Home

Although you can purchase and try some DIY roach traps and baits on your own, the chances are small that these products will deliver the desired results. As a novice, you may struggle to find all of the areas where cockroaches are hiding on your property, meaning you may knock down the population, but you are unlikely to eliminate it. A few weeks later, the roaches are back with a vengeance.
