If you call your Tulsa pest-control company, you’ll no longer have to live with cockroaches in your home. These insects get into our pantries and kitchens in an attempt to feed off of our food and water and then live in the walls and gaps between. They spread disease and cause all sorts of problems and are generally disgusting. It’s so important that you keep these insects out of your home and away from your children. So in this article, let us take a good hard, look at cockroaches, their lifecycle, and what you and your Tulsa pest-control company can do to protect you, and your loved ones from these pests.


In Oklahoma, we have four general types of cockroach that find their way in. In our homes there are two indoor cockroaches that we find, the German cockroach and the brown banded cockroach. The German cockroach is the number one cockroach that we see in pest control situations. Both of these insects will get into your pantry or kitchen to eat off anything that they can find. The other two cockroaches that we find are the American cockroach and the oriental cockroach. These two cockroaches are outdoor cockroaches and usually find a way in when there’s a leak in the plumbing or some other issue. These cockroaches don’t feed on the food that we eat, but instead will eat on dead plant and animal material. These two are usually a sign that you have a leak in your plumbing somewhere and need to deal with it.


The number one way to keep cockroaches out of your home is to keep your home clean. These insects make their homes and survive in filth. They love to eat the food that we leave out and drink any water they can find. In a while, they’ll feed an animal droppings or dead plant and animal material. These things are covered with all sorts of bacteria and viruses that can spread disease. Check our our reviews!

So it’s important that you wash the dishes before you go to bed in the evening. A cockroach can make a meal out of all the food particles that are found all over these dishes. Leaving a pan of grease on the oven is another way to attract these insects into your home. Teenagers that leave plates of uneaten food under the bed or other unsanitary conditions can also bring these bugs into their home. It’s important that you keep an eye on these things and make sure that your family is protected from cockroaches. Call your Tulsa pest control company if you need help with these insects.
