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 part of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of the 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 border over the mind, then it’s an American roach.
Notorious for their global distribution, German cockroaches are easily identifiable 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, normally 3-4 generations annually. As it is most commonly found inside, 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 two dark, distinctive stripes behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in color, with a light stripe in 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 usually found in kitchens, bathrooms, but can inhabit other areas if there is a heavy population or you have run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
You can also found their egg cases which look like coffee beans, dark brown in colour. Accompanied by egg cases is their extremely nausea-triggering odor. This can be evident when an infestation is big enough and spread over adjacent rooms. The majority of the roach population is located in the kitchen or bathrooms. Cockroaches are active at night and they’ve rarely seen throughout the day. If you spot them 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 nesting places; they spend about 75 percent of their time in these places breeding.
