BROWN BANDED COCKROACHES
Brown Banded Cockroaches are a common pest in and around all areas of Houston. They can be recognized by the two brownish bands that go across the body at the base and body of the abdomen. Both the male and female Brown Banded Cockroaches have wings, although only the males will fly when disturbed. Our technicians at Preventive Pest Control will be able to determine what type of cockroach is present once a live or dead specimen is seen.
Brown Banded Cockroaches prefer warm, dry areas to nest in. Areas inside the home such as pantries, inside the housing of refrigerator motors, closets, and inside light switch plates are common areas to find them. When inside the home, they are more likely to be found closer to the ceiling in areas like the top of cabinets or appliances rather than closer to the floor where it may be wet.
As with all roaches, Brown Banded Cockroaches have three developmental stages: egg, nymph, and adult. The presence of all three stages of Brown Banded Cockroaches let’s you know that an infestation is underway.
