What do German cockroaches look like and where do you see them? Usually found in the kitchen area, this pest is small, 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch in length, and moderate yellowish-brown. German roaches could be distinguished from other roaches by two black parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal portion of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of your thumb and it is reddish brown to black, it is a female wood roach. If it is dark mahogany and the size of your thumb, then it is a smoky brown roach. If it is bigger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter border over the head, then it’s an American roach.
With a global distribution as a one of the kind roach species, the mature female German roach can lay 35 to 45 eggs cases or known as ootheca, which also encapsulates multiple eggs. When these eggs hatch in about 1 month, the nymphs flourish to survive and develop into adults between 6 weeks to 6 months. German roaches are fast breeders and they can multiply normally 3 to 4 generations per year. Like most other species of cockroaches, German cockroaches are nocturnal pests. They are most commonly found inside, it prefers moist, humid conditions and is typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
These creepy crawlers will leave marks that indicate their presence like excrement and egg cases (ootheca). They may also emit foul odors too because of their growing infestation. Their excrement droppings that look like black pepper. DO NOT simply clean up these excrements without wearing protective gears. The bacteria from these excrement droppings have been known to trigger asthma and allergies. It is important to observe the location of the excrement to treat in these areas, however, remove it with a vacuum cleaner as soon as possible. The majority of the roach population is found in the kitchen or bathrooms.
If the population is large enough, they will spill over to other rooms. These roaches are mostly active at night. If German roaches are seen active during the day, it most likely is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a lack of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of their time in these harborages. First instar nymphs need a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults need inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller compared to most other cockroaches; thus, they are able to conceal themselves in many places and remain protected.
