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 dark parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal portion of the thorax. If it is not the size of your 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 using a lighter edge over the head, then it’s an American roach.
The German roach is easily transported. It comes from the supermarket, providers (commercial) or your friends and neighbours. When you buy groceries, they can grab a ride in one of those bags and can be inadvertently introduced to your pantry or your kitchen cabinets
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with 2 dark, identifying strips behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in color, with a light stripe on 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 other areas if there is a heavy population or you’ve run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
You can also found their egg cases that look like coffee beans, dark brown in colour. Accompanied by egg cases is their exceptionally nausea-triggering odor. This can be evident when an infestation is large 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 during the day. If you spot them during the day, it most likely is due to overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of food and water supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting areas; they spend about 75 percent of the time in these places breeding.
