What do German cockroaches look like and where do you see them in Pacific Pines? Usually found in the kitchen area, this pest is small, 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 part of the thorax. If it is not the size of your thumb and it is reddish brown to black, it’s 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.
Notorious for their global distribution, German cockroaches are easily recognisable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to approximately 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, generally 3-4 generations annually. As it is most commonly found indoors, it prefers moist, humid conditions and are 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 near 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’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 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 have 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 areas; they spend about 75 percent of the time in these places breeding.
