IdentificationThe American Cockroach can be very large in size, up to an inch and a half long. They have reddish-brown wings, and they have a translucent yellow band around their head (like a necklace).
DetectionBecause of their size the American Cockroach is easy to identify. They congregate in areas that provide moisture and food such as decaying organic matter around pipes, sewers, and damp areas like basements. It is possible to confuse their droppings with those of a house mouse.
ImpactAs with other crawling insects, the American Cockroach can contaminate your home with what it has crawled through. Since they prefer decaying organic matter, they can spread these germs into areas of your home where your food is stored or where your children play. They can also feed on items that contain starches such as human food, paper, books, and some clothing.
PreventionKeeping your home or business clean and free from improperly stored food or food that has been left on floors or countertops will greatly reduce their presence. Having interior pipe penetrations sealed and removing wet and decaying wood inside your home (often under sink cabinets) will help reduce their presence as well. Outside your home, moving compost piles away from your house and removing leaf and wood piles will give them fewer places to live and hide. A Perimeter Treatment around your home or business from Myles is a highly effective way to stop American Cockroaches from entering your home or business in the first place.
SolutionThe best and most effective way to deal with American Cockroaches is to have Myles Pest Services professionally identify and treat the exterior and interior (as needed) areas of your home that provide ideal living and breeding quarters for these Texas-sized roaches. A Trained Myles Technician is always available to visit with you and discuss a customizable solution that will provide the best treatment to rid your home or business of this disgusting and annoying pest problem.
IdentificationAdults are a medium brown and about 1/2" - 5/8” long. German Cockroaches have two dark stripes on their pronotum (head region), which distinguishes them from other Cockroaches. Immature German Cockroaches resemble adults except they are smaller, nearly black in color, and have a single light stripe down the middle of their back.
DetectionGerman Cockroaches are found near sources of moisture, usually in kitchens and bathrooms. Look for them in cracks and crevices, around and under cabinets and appliances, behind pictures frames and room trim (baseboards, crown molding, door frames), and in other dark, undisturbed areas.
German Cockroaches found throughout a building away from food sources are usually considered a heavy infestation, or if they are seen in the home in broad daylight.
ImpactGerman roaches pose a major health problem because of the diseases they carry, including different forms of gastroenteritis (such as food poisoning and dysentery), allergens, as well as disease-producing protozoa and bacteria. The German Cockroach is considered the most economically important urban pest in the U.S.
PreventionSanitation is tremendously important to controlling German Cockroaches; however, no home is immune from their presence. In addition, make sure any products (especially boxes or paper products) brought into the home are free of roaches.

“My mother’s house had become uninhabitable. The roaches were so bad they fell onto the kitchen counter every time we opened the doors. Myles worked on the house until it was roach-free. We never thought we would ever get rid of them. Thank you, Myles." - T. Edwards, Ft. Worth
