Smokey Brown Cockroaches

Smokey Brown Cockroaches are very common in and all-around Houston. These roaches thrive in areas where there is a lot of moisture and they can be easily identified by their dark brown, almost black coloration. And as if their size wasn’t intimidating enough when you see them, just wait until you see them fly! They’re strong fliers as well.
Smokey Brown Roaches are found generally in areas with a high moisture content. Around the home, you will find them in mulch beds, brush piles in the yard, nesting in holes of trees, or even in the garage where it is generally a lot cooler than outside. Smokey Brown Roaches are primarily an outside pest but can enter the home in search of food and water through several access points that are common for pests to enter. Some of these entry points are areas such as underneath doors, plumbing penetrations from the exterior, weep holes, and even from the attic through attic or soffit vents.

Smokey Brown Roaches eat a variety of things. They can be scavengers feeding on what may be left over in our garbage, or they may eat other insects, as well as a large part of their diet that consists of vegetation. They are opportunistic and will make sure to feed on whatever is necessary to survive.
