There are five species of roaches in East and Southeast Texas, the German (which I’ve already devoted its own page), American Roach, smokey brown roaches, oriental roaches, and brown banded roaches. Of the five, Germans, Smokeys, and Americans are the three most common home invaders in that order based own my experience. Roaches are very easy to prevent in most cases. Unlike german cockroaches, the other four species are inside and outside invaders, they also come from the woods, compost, attics, trash, and other favorable areas and environments. most of these particular roaches fly and can make you hurt yourself from fear:).
