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 can be distinguished from other roaches by two black parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal part 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 using a lighter border over the mind, then it’s an American roach.
With a global distribution as a one of the kind roach species, the adult 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 thrive 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 wet, humid conditions and is typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in houses and commercial properties.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with 2 dark, identifying stripes behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in color, with a light stripe on their backs. German cockroaches will eat anything. They stay close to food and water source. Females reproduce one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains 25-45 eggs. Infestations are usually found in kitchens, bathrooms, but can inhabit other areas if there is a heavy population or you’ve run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
You can also found their egg cases which look like coffee beans, dark brown in colour. Accompanied by egg cases is their extremely nausea-triggering odor. This can be evident when an infestation is big enough and spread over adjacent rooms. The majority of the roach population is located in the kitchen or bathrooms. Cockroaches are active at night and they’ve rarely seen throughout the day. If you spot them during the day, it probably is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of food and water supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting places; they spend about 75% of their time in these places breeding.
