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 dark 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 using a lighter edge over the head, then it is an American roach.
The German cockroach is a cosmopolitan species, meaning, they are widely distributed to other countries, especially those with tropical climates. The mature female German roach can lay 35 to 45 Egg cases or known as ootheca, which also encapsulates multiple eggs. These eggs hatch in approximately 1 month and the nymphs thrive to survive and develop into adults between 6 weeks to 6 months. German roaches can multiply fast, normally 3 to 4 generations per year. German cockroaches are nocturnal pests, meaning they are active nighttime creepy crawlers. They can thrive both indoors and outside and prefers wet, humid areas such as kitchens and bathrooms in houses and commercial properties.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with two dark, distinctive stripes 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 other areas if there is a heavy population or you have 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 exceptionally 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 found 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 due to overcrowding in their hiding places or a lack of food and water supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting places; they spend about 75% of the time in these places breeding.
