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 medium yellowish-brown. German roaches can be distinguished from other roaches by two black 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 bigger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter border over the mind, then it’s an American roach.
Notorious for their world-wide distribution, 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, generally 3-4 generations annually. As it is most commonly found inside, it prefers wet, humid conditions and are typically found in kitchens and bathrooms in homes and commercial properties.
In a restaurant, they will come on supplies, especially soda syrups, and be put in the commercial kitchen or storage areas. They can also come into commercial kitchen facilities by hitching a ride in the handbags of workers. Inside the home, the female lays a light brown egg capsule every 16-24 days — up to 8 egg capsules in her lifetime.
You may 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 obvious 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 have 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 water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their nesting areas; they spend about 75% of the time in these places breeding.
