With a notorious reputation, German cockroaches are a massive nuisance to both households and businesses. Their presence does not only send shivers but deemed to inflict danger on sanitation and health. These cockroaches are much bigger than American and Australian cockroaches. The adult can grow about 12 to 15 mm and they’re one nasty pest that brings annoying havoc.
Notorious for their world-wide distribution, German cockroaches are easily identifiable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to about 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 indoors, it prefers moist, humid conditions and are typically located in 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 near food and water source. Females reproduce 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.
You may also found their egg cases which look like coffee beans, dark brown in colour. Accompanied by egg cases is their exceptionally nausea-triggering odor. This can be obvious when an infestation is big 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 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 percent of their time in these places breeding.
