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 your thumb and it is reddish brown to black, it’s 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 border over the head, then it’s 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 called ootheca, which also encapsulates multiple eggs. These eggs hatch in approximately 1 month and the nymphs thrive to survive and develop into adults between 6 weeks to 6 months. German roaches can multiply fast, normally 3 to 4 generations per year. German cockroaches are nocturnal pests, meaning they are busy nighttime creepy crawlers. They can thrive both indoors and outside and prefers wet, humid areas such as kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with two dark, distinctive stripes behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in colour, with a light stripe in their backs. German cockroaches will eat anything. They stay close to food and water source. Ladies replicate one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains 25-45 eggs. Infestations are often found in kitchens, bathrooms, but can inhabit different areas if there’s a heavy population or you have run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
Notorious for their worldwide supply, German cockroaches are easily recognisable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to approximately 12 — 15mm in length. Most commonly found indoors, they prefer wet, humid conditions and are typically found in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
