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.
