What do German cockroaches look like and where do you see them in Blackbutt? 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 part of the thorax. If it is not the size of the thumb and it is 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 larger (up to 1.5 inches), has wings, and is reddish-brown with a lighter border over the head, then it is 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 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 inside, it prefers wet, humid conditions and are typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in houses and commercial properties.
Adults are half an inch long, light to medium brown with two dark identifying stripes 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 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’ve run them into each other with the repellent effect of insecticides.
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 probably is because of overcrowding in their hiding places or a lack of food and water supply. Cracks and crevices are their harborage areas; they spend about 75% of their time in such harborages. First instar nymphs require a crack of about 1/32″ whereas, adults require inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller compared to most other cockroaches; hence, they are able to conceal themselves in many places and remain protected.
