"Smokey Browns", as they're called are very common in the Southeast. They are outdoor roaches, hiding under vegetation and debris, heavy mulch, and leaves. They are nocturnal, and are strong flyers often seen flying near or around outdoor lights at night.
Smokey Brown Roaches will eat almost anything, primarily feeding on starcy or protein foods. Their egg capsules contain about 24 young, and are glued to surfaces in cracks or corners for protection. Eggs hatch in about 45 days and become adults in about 200 days.
These roaches are usually found in basements, crawl spaces, or on ground floors. They enter through small holes in the siding and the foundation or sometimes just fly right through open doors and windows. They contaminate the surfaces they touch, spreading bacteria that can result in serious illness. Proteins in smokey brown cockroach skin and saliva may also trigger asthma or allergic reactions.
Pronto's Treatment Plan includes exterior perimeter, interior, attics, basements, and crawl spaces using baiting, repellent, and exclusion techniques.
