German cockroaches on the loose

What do German cockroaches look like and where do you see them? Usually found in the kitchen area, this insect is little, 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch in length, and moderate yellowish-brown. German roaches can be distinguished from other roaches by two black parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal portion of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of your thumb and it’s reddish brown to black, it is a female wood roach. If it is dark mahogany and the size of your thumb, then it is a smoky brown roach. If it is bigger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown using a lighter edge over the head, then it’s an American roach.

Notorious for their global supply, German cockroaches are easily recognisable 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, generally 3-4 generations annually. As it is most commonly found inside, it prefers moist, humid conditions and are typically found in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.

These creepy crawlers will leave marks that indicate their presence such as 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 equipment. The bacteria from these excrement droppings are known to trigger allergies and asthma. It is important to take note of the location of this excrement to treat in these areas, however, remove it with a vacuum cleaner as soon as possible. The vast majority of the roach population is located in the kitchen or bathrooms.

Out of that capsule can come up to 36-48 eggs. That means just one roach can spawn 384 more roaches. As you can see, you can have quite a pest problem in just a short time with German roaches. That is why it’s important to remove roach eggs when you treat for cockroaches. Simply eliminating the live roaches will not fix the issue.

Ben is an absolute gentleman. Extremely polite and courteous and was very thorough in his work. He even took the time to explain different aspects of his job and the various insects and how he gets rid of them. Absolute champion. Hoping this will be the start of a long relationship with Andrew and his Local Pest Control team. Cheers.

How Do You Prevent German Cockroaches?

Preventing cockroaches can be successfully carried out with a few basic measures. When it comes to prevention and control of pests, simple things like keeping doors and windows shut and very good standards of cleaning and tidying that can make a huge difference.

There are plenty of other prevention methods also, such as daily cleaning and proper food storage, to prevent an infestation. But how do you get rid of cockroaches once they have already entered your home?

German cockroaches are amazing scavengers. In an urban environment, roaches rely heavily on the food humans leave behind. Like us, their diet mainly consists of protein, sugar, and carbohydrates. The best way to prevent cockroaches is to remove any potential food resources lying around your house or business. But if an infestation is suspected, you can contact us to discuss your requirements for successful cockroach control or prevention in your home or business.
