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 medium yellowish-brown. German roaches could be distinguished from other roaches by two dark parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal portion of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of the thumb and it is 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 edge over the head, then it’s an American roach.
With a worldwide distribution as a one of the kind roach species, the mature female German roach can lay 35 to 45 eggs cases or known as ootheca, which also encapsulates multiple eggs. When these eggs hatch in approximately 1 month, the nymphs flourish to survive and develop into adults between 6 weeks to 6 months. German roaches are fast breeders and they can multiply generally 3 to 4 generations per year. Like most other species of cockroaches, German cockroaches are nocturnal pests. They are most commonly found inside, it prefers wet, humid conditions and is typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with two dark, identifying stripes behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in colour, with a light stripe on their backs. German cockroaches will eat anything. They stay near food and water source. Ladies replicate one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains 25-45 eggs. Infestations are usually found in kitchens, bathrooms, but can inhabit different areas if there is a heavy population or you have run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
If the population is large enough, they will spread over adjoining rooms. They move around freely at night, however, if you see them during the day, it probably is due to overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting areas; they spend about 75% of the time in these places breeding.
