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 can be distinguished from other roaches by two dark parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal part of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of your 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 bigger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter border over the head, then it is an American roach.
The German cockroach is a cosmopolitan species, meaning, they are widely distributed to other nations, 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 flourish to survive and develop into adults between 6 months 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 outside and prefers wet, humid areas such as kitchens and bathrooms in houses and commercial properties.
In a restaurant, they will come on supplies, especially soda syrups, and be placed in the commercial kitchen or storage areas. They can also develop into commercial kitchen facilities by hitching a ride in the handbags of employees. Inside the home, the female lays a light brown egg capsule every 16-24 days — up to 8 egg capsules in her lifetime.
You may also found their egg cases which look like coffee beans, dark brown in colour. Accompanied by egg cases is their extremely nausea-triggering odor. This can be evident when an infestation is large enough and spread over adjacent rooms. The majority of the roach population is located 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 most likely is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of food and water supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting areas; they spend about 75% of the time in these places breeding.
