One of the most notorious common cockroaches in the household is the German cockroach. They are easily identifiable and largely found in homes, restaurants and hotels. These cockroaches are much larger than Australian and American cockroaches. The adult can grow about 12 to 15 mm and they are one foul pest that is a huge nuisance to household and environment.
Notorious for their world-wide distribution, German cockroaches are easily recognisable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to about 12-15mm in length. Females take 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 wet, humid conditions and are typically found in kitchens and bathrooms in houses and commercial properties.
German roaches are mainly seen during the night. If you see these types of cockroaches throughout the day, there’s a substantial infestation present. They also leave excrement droppings that look like black pepper. It’s important to take note of the location of this excrement to treat in these areas, however, remove it using a vacuum cleaner as soon as possible. The germs from these excrement droppings have been known to trigger allergies and asthma. The majority of the roach population is located in the kitchen or bathrooms.
If the population is large enough, they will spill over to other chambers. These roaches are mostly active at night. If German roaches are seen active during the day, it most likely is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of the time in such harborages. First instar nymphs need a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults require inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller compared to most other cockroaches; thus, they have the ability to conceal themselves in many places and stay protected.
