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 part 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 is 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’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 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, normally 3-4 generations per year. As it is most commonly found indoors, it prefers moist, humid conditions and are typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with 2 dark, identifying stripes behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in colour, with a light stripe on their backs. German cockroaches will eat anything. They stay close to food and water source. Ladies replicate one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains 25-45 eggs. Infestations are often found in kitchens, bathrooms, but can inhabit different areas if there’s a heavy population or you’ve run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
Out of this 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’s why it’s important to remove roach eggs when you treat for cockroaches. Simply eliminating the live roaches will not fix the issue.
