How To Get Rid of German Cockroaches?

German cockroaches (Blattella germanica) are among the most common indoor cockroach species in the world. They typically live in residential homes, but they can also be found in restaurants and other commercial buildings.

German cockroaches are medium-sized insects with brownish-black bodies, tan wings and a yellowish band behind their heads. They are about 1/2-inch long when adults and have two parallel dark stripes on the back of their thoraxes (the pronotum).

German cockroaches prefer warm temperatures, so they’re often found in kitchens and bathrooms where steam from showers or sinks makes it hard for them to dry out. The pests also like to hide in dark places close to food sources, such as under refrigerators or inside cabinets near plumbing pipes or drains.

Female German cockroaches produce an egg case called an ootheca (plural oothecae). An ootheca is made up of several hundred eggs that are glued together with a secretion from the female’s ovipositor (egg-laying organ). This type of egg case allows females to carry it until her offspring hatch out into nymphs — baby roaches that look like adults but are smaller and lack wings. Female German cockroaches can produce an ootheca every 2 to 3 weeks if they are able to feed and mate frequently.

To prevent cockroach infestations, it’s important to keep food sealed in plastic containers or bags and put away after each meal. Cockroaches can also be brought into homes on grocery bags or boxes. To prevent this from happening, store your groceries in airtight containers in a cool place (like the refrigerator) until you’re ready to use them.

If you do find yourself with a cockroach problem, it’s important to take care of it, and get rid of German cockroaches as soon as possible. Cockroaches can spread bacteria and other germs on their bodies or in their feces, which can cause disease in humans. When they come into contact with food, they can contaminate it by leaving saliva behind or eating crumbs on the countertop. If you think you have an infestation, contact your local pest control professional right away.
