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 could be distinguished from other roaches by two dark parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal portion of the thorax. If it is not the size of the thumb and it’s 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 larger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter edge over the mind, then it is an American roach.
Notorious for their global 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 per year. As it is most commonly found inside, it prefers wet, humid conditions and are typically found in kitchens and bathrooms in homes 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 seem like black pepper and are largely concentrated in one area. If you see some, DO NOT simply clean up these increments without wearing protective gears. The bacteria from these excrement droppings are known to trigger asthma and allergies. The best way to eliminate these is by using vacuums.
You may also found their egg cases which look like coffee beans, dark brown in colour. Accompanied by egg cases is their extremely nausea-triggering odor. This can be evident when an infestation is big enough and spread over adjacent rooms. The majority of the roach population is found 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 lack of food and water supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting areas; they spend about 75% of the time in these places breeding.
