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 portion of the thorax. If it isn’t the size of your 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 larger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter edge over the head, then it’s an American roach.
Notorious for their global distribution, German cockroaches are easily recognisable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to approximately 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 per year. As it is most commonly found indoors, it prefers moist, 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 placed 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.
If the population is large enough, they will spill over to other chambers. These roaches are mostly active at night. If German roaches are seen active during the day, it most likely is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of the time in such harborages. First instar nymphs need a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults need inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller compared to most other cockroaches; thus, they have the ability to conceal themselves in many places and remain protected.
