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 dark parallel stripes on the anterior, dorsal portion of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of the thumb and it is 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 border over the mind, then it is an American roach.
Notorious for their world-wide distribution, German cockroaches are easily recognisable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to approximately 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 annually. 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 signs, these are droppings, egg case (ootheca) and extremely foul odor. Their excrement droppings that look like black pepper and are mostly concentrated in one area. If you spot some, DO NOT simply clean up these increments without wearing protective equipment. The bacteria from such excrement droppings have been known to trigger asthma and allergies. The best way to remove these is by using vacuums.
If the population is large enough, they will spill over to other rooms. These roaches are mostly active at night. If German roaches are observed active 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 harborage areas; they spend about 75% of their time in such harborages. First instar nymphs require a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults need inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller than most other cockroaches; hence, they are able to conceal themselves in many places and stay protected.
