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 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’s 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.
The German cockroach is a cosmopolitan species, meaning, they are widely distributed to other nations, especially those with tropical climates. The adult female German roach can lay 35 to 45 Egg cases or known as ootheca, which also encapsulates multiple eggs. These eggs hatch in about 1 month and the nymphs flourish 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 to say they are active nighttime creepy crawlers. They can thrive both indoors and outdoors and prefers wet, humid areas such as kitchens and bathrooms in houses 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 because of their growing infestation. Their excrement droppings that look like black pepper. Do not just clean up these excrements without wearing protective gears. The bacteria from these excrement droppings are known to trigger allergies and asthma. It is important to take note of the location of this 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.
If the population is large enough, they will spill over to other rooms. These roaches are mostly active at night. If German roaches are observed active during the day, it probably is due to overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of food and water supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of their time in these harborages. First instar nymphs require a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults need inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller than most other cockroaches; hence, they have the ability to conceal themselves in many places and stay protected.
