Facts about German cockroaches
The German cockroach grows up to 16mm in length, has a tan color with two horizontal black stripes across its exterior, and has a pair of wings that are rarely put to use as they prefer to use their legs to move about. Younger German cockroaches are near black in color but also have the two stripes across their bodies.
These cockroaches are known for their ability to reproduce at an incredible rate. After mating, the female German cockroach lays 4-6 egg cases, with each of those casings containing about 30-40 eggs! The eggs hatch within 2 days and the cockroaches grow from baby to adult within 100 days.
German cockroaches are the kind that you usually find in your house. They can live outdoors but they prefer the warm and humid temperatures of homes – especially that of kitchens and bathrooms. They’re usually brought into the home through bags, cardboard boxes, and used appliances.
Food sources of the German cockroach include almost anything – from leftover crumbs to soap!
Dealing with a German cockroach infestation
As you’ve now learned, a German cockroach infestation can quickly escalate from a minor inconvenience to a major problem. Due to their quick reproduction and eating habits, they can quickly take over your home.
If you think you have a German cockroach infestation, be sure. Look for common signs such as: German cockroach droppings (small, pepper-like material left on surfaces), empty egg cases dropped by the females, or a musty odor, which can be smelled if there is a large quantity of German cockroaches present.
Traps and such can be purchased to help eliminate German cockroaches but since these insects reproduce in such large numbers, calling for a professional treatment from us at Preferred Pest Control is recommended. These creatures are naturally gifted hiders and when you call us, we will inspect the home and come up with a personalized treatment plan that is best for your situation.
