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 could 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’s 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 border over the head, then it is an American roach.
German cockroaches prefer to live near their food and water source which are usually in the kitchen and bathroom. We put the maximum force gel in strategic areas around the kitchen and bathroom. The cockroaches consume the gel and die and then their partners in crime cannibalise them and die. After the cockroach egg capsules hatch the infants eat the gel then perish. A successful German cockroach infestation can occasionally take up to a month to work because we have to wait for the egg capsules to hatch.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with 2 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 near 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.
If the population is large enough, they will spread over adjoining rooms. They move around freely at night, however, if you see them throughout the day, it probably is due to overcrowding in their hiding places or a lack of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting areas; they spend about 75 percent of the time in these places breeding.
