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 is not the size of the thumb and it is reddish brown to black, it’s 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 larger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter border over the mind, then it’s an American roach.
Notorious for their global supply, German cockroaches are easily identifiable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to about 12-15mm in length. Females carry 35 – 40 eggs in an ootheca (egg case) until they are ready to hatch. Hatch in 1 month. Nymphs take between 6 weeks to 6 months to develop into adults, normally 3-4 generations per year. As it is most commonly found indoors, it prefers wet, humid conditions and are typically found 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 can also emit foul odors too due to 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 are known to trigger asthma and allergies. It is important to take note of the location of the excrement to treat in these areas, however, remove it using a vacuum cleaner as soon as possible. The majority of the roach population is located in the kitchen or bathrooms.
Out of that capsule can come up to 36-48 eggs. That means just one roach can spawn 384 more roaches. As you can see, you can have quite a pest problem in just a brief time with German roaches. That is why it’s important to remove roach eggs when you treat for cockroaches. Simply eliminating the live roaches won’t resolve the problem.
