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 medium yellowish-brown. German roaches can 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’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 close to their food and water source which are usually in the kitchen and bathroom. We place the max 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 babies eat the gel then die. A successful German cockroach infestation can occasionally take up to a month to work since we have to wait for the egg capsules to hatch.
At a restaurant, they’ll come on supplies, especially soda syrups, and be placed in the commercial kitchen or storage areas. They can also develop 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 rooms. These roaches are mostly active at night. If German roaches are observed active during the day, it most likely is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a lack of water and food supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of the time in these harborages. First instar nymphs need a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults require inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller than most other cockroaches; hence, they are able to conceal themselves in many places and stay protected.
