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 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’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 bigger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown using a lighter border over the mind, then it’s an American roach.
Notorious for their world-wide supply, German cockroaches are easily identifiable 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, normally 3-4 generations annually. As it is most commonly found inside, it prefers moist, humid conditions and are typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in houses and commercial properties.
We can easily spot German cockroach infestation because they leave evidence, these are droppings, egg case (ootheca) and extremely foul odor. Their excrement droppings that look like black pepper and are mostly concentrated in one area. If you see some, DO NOT simply clean up these increments without wearing protective equipment. The bacteria from such excrement droppings have been known to trigger asthma and allergies. The best way to remove these is using vacuums.
Out of that capsule can come up to 36-48 eggs. That means just one roach can spawn 384 more roaches. As you can see, you can have quite a pest problem in only a brief time with German roaches. That’s why it’s important to eliminate roach eggs once you treat for cockroaches. Simply eliminating the live roaches will not fix the issue.
