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 isn’t the size of your thumb and it is reddish brown to black, it’s 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 head, then it is an American roach.
Notorious for their world-wide supply, German cockroaches are easily identifiable 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, generally 3-4 generations per year. As it is most commonly found inside, it prefers moist, humid conditions and are typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
These creepy crawlers will leave marks that indicate their presence like excrement and egg cases (ootheca). They can also emit foul odors too due to their growing infestation. Their excrement droppings that look like black pepper. DO NOT simply clean up these excrements without wearing protective gears. The bacteria from these excrement droppings are known to trigger allergies and asthma. It is important to observe the location of the excrement to treat in these areas, however, remove it using a vacuum cleaner as soon as possible. The vast 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 probably is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a lack of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of the time in these 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; hence, they have the ability to conceal themselves in many places and stay protected.
