Life challenges us with many problems. Some are easily fixed with a quick internet search, whilst others require much more extensive knowledge and training to address. If a tire on your car pops, you might be able to fix it yourself. But if it’s engine blows; the chances of you being able to repair things on your own become much slimmer, that is, unless you are a mechanic. But are cockroaches a problem you need professionals to fix? Here are a few things you should consider.

Common Cockroaches Around Plano

Texas is home to several different species of cockroach, the most common of which are German roaches, American roaches, Oriental roaches, brown-banded roaches, and smoky brown roaches. Rather than breaking down each of these pests individually, here are a few things all roaches share in common.


Cockroaches are speedy little pests, able to run close to three miles an hour. The kicker is that they are not just fast runners but also dexterous climbers. Without breaking pace, a cockroach can climb up a vertical wall and transition itself completely upsidedown on the ceiling above. This makes these pests hard to pin down, and even harder to treat.

Resistance and Durability

Cockroaches are not easy pests to kill. Not only can these insects withstand over 900 times their body weight in pressure, but they can also survive over five times the radiation humans can withstand. To top this all off, cockroaches are naturally resistant to many pest control products, making them one of the most difficult pests to treat inside homes.


Cockroaches are closely connected with disease. Known for carrying and spreading over 33 different bacteria, 7 human pathogens, 6 parasitic worms, and capable of triggering asthma attacks and allergic reactions, these pests pose a serious risk to the health and wellbeing of homeowners. The best way to avoid the many heath threats these pests pose is to get a professional involved.


Cockroaches prefer living in spaces where their back and belly can touch a surface at the same time. It is not uncommon for these pests to seek shelter beneath or behind stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers, furniture, and wall panels. Because of the many hard to reach places these pests hide, combatting these pests often proves to be a difficult task.

Why Cockroaches Invade Homes

Cockroaches invade homes for many reasons. Most often they come inside to avoid inclement weather or seek food, water, and shelter. Although filth isn’t the only thing that attracts these invasive pests, roaches are much more likely to invade a dirty home rather than one that is clean.
