Smokey Brown Cockroach Control in Houston

Dependable Protection from Preventive Pest Control

Smokey brown cockroaches are very common throughout the Houston area. These roaches thrive in areas with a high amount of moisture, such as in homes with plumbing leaks, near restrooms and kitchens, and around sewer lines. Around the home, you will find them in mulch beds, brush piles in the yard, nesting in holes of trees, or even in the garage where it is generally a lot cooler than outside. Smokey brown cockroaches are fairly easy to identify: they are a distinct dark brown, almost black coloration, they are particularly large, and they tend to be found in the aforementioned damp areas. If their size wasn’t intimidating enough when you see them, just wait until you see how well they can fly.

About the Smokey Brown Cockroach

Smokey brown cockroaches are primarily an outdoor pest, but can and do enter homes and businesses in search of food and water. They typically find their way into your building through one or more of several common access points that pests are known to enter through.

Smokey brown roaches can frequently find their way into your home through:

  • Exterior plumbing penetrations
  • Gaps around windows
  • Beneath doors
  • Attic vents
  • Soffit vents
  • Weep holes

Once inside your home or business, smokey brown roaches eat a variety of things. Most often they are scavengers, feeding on what may be left over in our garbage. They will sometimes hunt and eat other insects, but a large part of their diet that consists of vegetation. Primarily, they are opportunistic and will make sure to feed on whatever is necessary to survive.

Preventive Pest Control Will Eliminate Smokey Brown Roaches

When you notice signs of a smokey brown roach infestation, whether they are inside or outside, it’s extremely important to get help right away and start the process of eliminating them. Roaches can harbor in areas of filth, so they will always be transmitters of disease and bacteria. Smokey brown roaches also reproduce at an alarming rate under ideal circumstances—a single female smokey brown roach will produce as many as 200 eggs in her short lifetime of just over three months!

Preventive Pest Control’s six-foot Roach Control Barrier that we apply around your home with our power sprayer will immediately begin to eliminate your smokey brown roach problem. As these roaches travel where we have applied our barrier, you will quickly begin to see them go “belly-up” around your home. Along with our six-foot Roach Barrier, we will also inspect and treat other possible entry points inside and outside where smokey brown roaches may find easy access to the interior of your home. Preventive Pest Control’s regular maintenance program will ensure that you no longer have to deal with unwanted roach activity inside and outside of your home.
