German Cockroaches

Experienced Pest Control Specialists in San Antonio

Cockroaches are some of the worst pests to have in your home. Not only are they gross and filthy, but they are absolutely dangerous to the health of you and your entire family. Some of the most prevalent roaches in this area of San Antonio are German Cockroaches, which seem to be remarkably hardy wherever they are found. These roaches are just as happy living at the bottom of a greasy dumpster or a foul sewer as they are roaming around your kitchen pantries and cupboards, and will quickly spread diseases from their first home in the gutters to your own home in the suburbs.

When these roaches manage to invade your house, they can then transfer over 33 kinds of dangerous bacteria to you and your loved ones. The damage does not stop there, however, because they also carry six types of parasitic worms that can bury themselves within your intestines, and at least seven pathogens known to be fatal to humans. The minute you spy a cockroach in your house, or even located near your home, immediately contact our specialists at Family Pest Control LLC so that we can destroy these pests before they destroy you and your home.

German Cockroaches In San Antonio

What Do German Cockroaches Look Like?

Like American cockroaches, German cockroaches are known for being extremely common amongst homes within the United States. Unlike their American cousins, they are slightly smaller, usually growing to a maximum of an inch in length, and are colored light brown with a couple of darker stripes located on their heads. Make no mistake about it, though – just because these roaches are a little smaller, they are also just as nasty, and carry as many dangerous diseases.

To prevent German cockroaches, it's important to keep your home clean and free of food debris, seal any cracks or crevices, and address any moisture issues in your home.

Sanitation Methods for Preventing a Cockroach Infiltration

While cockroaches can get into any home, the key is to make your house so clean and sanitized that they will not be attracted to stay, simply because there is no open food source for them to eat. As always, good sanitation practices are some of the best methods for prevention.

Some ways to prevent roaches from attacking your home include:

  • Dispose all food waste into a sealed trash can
  • Use special de-odorizing trash bags
  • Store all food, both in the fridge and in the pantry, with sealed containers
  • Store pet food in tightly sealed containers
  • Use caulking to seal cracks, gaps, and holes along the foundation of your house, as well as at the base of cupboards and pantries
