The German cockroach Is among the most common roaches found in apartment houses, restaurants and hotels. German cockroach (eggs included) are “brought in” usually on individual’s belongings, luggage, boxes or packages. They produce the most eggs, have the shortest development cycle, the best survival rate of the young, and the most adaptive feeding habits of the majority of the roaches.
Notorious for their world-wide distribution, German cockroaches are easily identifiable 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, normally 3-4 generations per year. As it is most commonly found indoors, it prefers wet, 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 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 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 may also found their egg cases which look like coffee beans, dark brown in colour. Accompanied by egg cases is their exceptionally nausea-triggering odor. This can be obvious 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 during 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 places; they spend about 75 percent of their time in these places breeding.
