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 could be distinguished from other roaches by two black 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 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.
German cockroaches like to live close to their food and water source that are usually in the kitchen and bathroom. We put the max force gel in strategic areas around the kitchen and bathroom. The cockroaches eat the gel and die and then their partners in crime cannibalise them and perish. When the cockroach egg capsules hatch the infants eat the gel then die. A successful German cockroach infestation can sometimes take up to a month to work since we must await the egg capsules to hatch.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with 2 dark distinctive strips behind the head. The young are wingless, smaller and much darker in color, with a light stripe on their backs. German cockroaches will eat anything. They stay close to food and water source. Females reproduce one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains 25-45 eggs. Infestations are often 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 may also found their egg cases that 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 large enough and spread over adjacent rooms. The majority of the roach population is found 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 shortage of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting areas; they spend about 75% of their time in these places breeding.
