What do German cockroaches look like and where do you see them? Usually found in the kitchen area, this insect is little, 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch in length, and medium 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 is not the size of the thumb and it is reddish brown to black, it is a female wood roach. If It’s dark mahogany and the size of your thumb, then it is a smoky brown roach. If it is larger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter edge over the head, then it’s an American roach.
With a worldwide distribution as a one of the sort roach species, the mature female German roach can lay 35 to 45 eggs cases or called 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 months to 6 months. German roaches are fast breeders and they can multiply generally 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.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with two dark distinctive strips behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in colour, with a light stripe in their backs. German cockroaches will eat anything. They stay close to food and water source. Ladies replicate one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains 25-45 eggs. Infestations are often found in kitchens, bathrooms, but can inhabit different areas if there’s a heavy population or you have run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
Notorious for their worldwide distribution, German cockroaches are easily recognisable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to approximately 12 — 15mm in length. Most commonly found inside, they prefer wet, humid conditions and are typically found in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
