Fort Worth's Step-By-Step Guide To Cockroach Control

Cockroaches are a major public health threat in the Fort Worth area. These pests pick up harmful microorganisms from bathrooms, trash cans, dumpsters, mop buckets, drains, and other unsanitary places. They then transfer these bacteria and pathogens to dishes, silverware, food-prep surfaces, stored food items, and more. Here is a quick, step-by-step guide to help you get control of cockroaches in and around your Fort Worth home.

Step 1: Determine Whether Or Not You Have An Infestation

Cockroaches are primarily nocturnal insects, meaning they are not likely to be active during the day. When you lay your head down to go to sleep at night, that is when they're going to begin skittering around your home. For this reason, you're likely to hear their skitter noises during the night or begin smelling an unpleasant odor in your home long before you see a cockroach in your home.

If you do see a cockroach, this is considered a warning sign of a large infestation. We don't recommend waiting until you see a cockroach inside your Fort Worth home. Instead, call your local Fort Worth pest control expert at the first sign of a cockroach problem.

Use these tips to uncover warning signs of cockroach activity:

What To Look For?

  • Black feces
  • Rectangular egg pouches
  • Broken remnants of egg pouches
  • Shed skins

Where To Look For Them?

  • In the cabinet under your kitchen and bathroom sinks
  • Underneath and around appliances
  • In gaps, cracks, and crevices
  • In the voids of furniture
  • On insulation in your attic
  • In between stored boxes and other items
  • In dark, moist areas of your basement

Step 2: Control Tips To Address An Infestation

If you uncover evidence of cockroaches inside your home, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself and get some control over those roaches. (This should not be used to replace professional treatments performed by a licensed pest management professional.)

  • Store your foods in sealed glass or plastic containers.
  • Keep your kitchen clean and free of spills and crumbs.
  • Deep clean around appliances.
  • Clean shelves and cupboards.
  • Clean your kitchen trash receptacle.
  • If you don't have a kitchen trash receptacle with a sealed cover, consider purchasing one.
  • Keep your living room and living room furniture vacuumed and free of crumbs.
  • Put pet food down only during meals and refrain from leaving food out overnight.
  • Put fruit in the fridge, rather than on display.
  • Address leaky faucets and any plumbing issues.
  • Install dehumidifiers in areas of your home that are humid.
  • Reduce clutter in your home to remove hiding places for roaches.
