American cockroaches are something that Plano residents are familiar with and must routinely contend with. Large, brown, and fast running, they are a force to be reckoned with once an infestation begins. But American cockroaches are not the only kind of cockroaches that inhabit the area. Oriental cockroaches also inhabit the Plano area, and just like their American cousins, they are more than happy to share your home with you. 

Regardless of the exact type of cockroach you have infesting your house, All-Safe Pest & Termite can help you get rid of them. Call us today for all of your Plano pest control needs. 

How Do I Tell If It's Oriental Cockroaches In My House?

American cockroaches are large and distinctly brown. Oriental cockroaches in Plano, also known as waterbugs, are smaller and not as elongated but considerably darker, appearing black in all but the brightest environments. Oriental cockroaches have a definite fondness for moist or wet areas and are common in places like drains, under sinks, around washing machines, and near showers. Oriental cockroaches do not have the sprinting speed of their American cousins. 

Regardless of how fast a particular breed of cockroach may run, All-Safe Pest & Termite wants to run them straight out of your house. Contact us today because we know how to get rid of cockroaches in your home.

How Are Oriental Cockroaches Harmful To My Health?

All cockroaches have the potential to cause health concerns. Like other roaches, oriental cockroaches love wet, dirty, filthy areas. They thrive in these environments. Unfortunately, so do bacteria, protozoa, and viruses. Oriental cockroaches can bring these potential disease-causing things into your home and spread them onto your food, countertops, and other household surfaces. Some of these can cause diseases and infections serious enough to require hospitalization. 

If you see cockroaches in your Plano home, do not take a chance that they may potentially spread diseases to you or your family. All-Safe Pest & Termite knows how to kill cockroaches in your home, and we are ready and willing to help you with cockroaches and all other pests.

How Do I Prevent Oriental Cockroaches From Coming Back?

Here are some tips for keeping cockroaches from wanting to come over and visit your home:

  • Clean your counters: Roaches of all kinds love crumbs and dirty counters.
  • Seal your food: Roaches like all kinds of stored food and will gladly share it with you.
  • Vacuum floors and carpets: Crumbs in carpets suit roaches just fine.
  • Eliminate water sources: Roaches need a lot of water. Decrease watering opportunities.
  • Seal your home: Roaches will exploit easy entry points to come and visit you.
  • Tightly close outside trash containers. You call it garbage. Roaches see a buffet.

These tips may help reduce roaches in and around your home, but roaches are a force of nature, and you will likely have an encounter with them sooner or later. When that happens, All-Safe Pest & Termite can help you get them out of your house. We know what kills cockroaches.
