German cockroaches on the loose

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 moderate yellowish-brown. German roaches can be distinguished from other roaches by two black parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal portion of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of the thumb and it’s 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 with a lighter edge over the mind, then it’s an American roach.

Notorious for their world-wide 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 per year. As it is most commonly found inside, it prefers moist, 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 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 asthma and allergies. It is important to observe the location of this excrement to treat in these areas, however, remove it using a vacuum cleaner as soon as possible. The vast majority of the roach population is found in the kitchen or bathrooms.

If the population is large enough, they will spill over to other chambers. These roaches are mostly active at night. If German roaches are observed active during the day, it most likely is due to overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of the time in such harborages. First instar nymphs need a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults require inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller compared to most other cockroaches; thus, they are able to conceal themselves in many places and remain protected.

Ben is an absolute gentleman. Extremely polite and courteous and was very thorough in his work. He even took the time to explain different aspects of his job and the various insects and how he gets rid of them. Absolute champion. Hoping this will be the start of a long relationship with Andrew and his Local Pest Control team. Cheers.

Your German Cockroach Control Program

Also, when starting your German roach control program, sanitation is one of the first things to consider. German roaches only need a small amount of food to sustain them. You want to:

  • Eliminate indoor trash or maintain them emptied
  • Maintain trash dumpsters clean
  • Make sure food is not left in the sink strainers and frequently run the garbage disposal
  • Food containers must be sealed.
  • Maintain dishes clean, no residue of food remaining
  • All kitchen appliances (microwaves, toasters, ovens, refrigerators and stoves) must be clean
  • Maintained in a clean condition so that it’s food free and grease free
  • All pet food needs to be picked up
  • No food left out in the open
  • Sweeping or vacuuming of any food particles or crumbs
  • Eliminate empty soft drink bottles, paper bags and cardboard boxes

How Do You Prevent German Cockroaches?

Preventing cockroaches can be successfully carried out with a few basic measures. When it comes to prevention and management of pests, simple things such as keeping doors and windows shut and very good standards of cleaning and tidying that can make a huge difference.

There are lots of other prevention methods as well, such as daily cleaning and proper food storage, to prevent an infestation. But how can you get rid of cockroaches once they have already entered your home?

Roaches enter homes in search of food, water and shelter. Once they have infested an area, they can multiply quickly, posing a threat to your comfort and health. It is important to get rid of cockroaches before an infestation occurs. Roaches are known to carry bacteria that can lead to food poisoning, diarrhea, allergies and skin rashes. In huge numbers, they are also able to generate a foul odour. Before deciding how to kill roaches in your house, it’s ideal to develop a program. The most effective roach control typically requires more than 1 type of treatment method.
