What do German Cockroaches Look Like?

German cockroaches range in size from 13 to 16 mm and in color from light brown to tan with two black horizontal stripes located behind their head. Adult cockroaches have wings, but cannot fly. These running insects are found worldwide but are prevalent here in Michigan.

What is Common German Cockroach Behavior?

These pests are attracted to the warm, humid areas of your home, such as kitchens and bathrooms. They enter the home in a manner similar to bed bugs, typically when bags, boxes, cardboard containers, or even used appliances are brought into the home. In shared dwellings, such as apartment complexes or condos, they travel from unit to unit in the shared plumbing and pipes. German cockroaches are capable of feeding on most food sources. These scavengers eat everything from soap to the bindings of books. They can even feed on crumbs missed during cleaning or on food left on dishes in the sink.

What are Signs of a German Cockroach Infestation?

German cockroaches leave three major signs of their presence: droppings, egg capsules, and a distinctive odor. The droppings appear as small, dark material left on counter-tops or in drawers, similar to un-ground black pepper. Their fecal stains, which appear as dark spots or smears, are typically left in the corners of rooms, on the tops of doors, and around small cracks or openings into walls. Empty German cockroach egg capsules are often left near areas that females frequent. The odor produced by the cockroach is a musty odor and is evident of a larger infestation.

Are German Cockroaches Harmful?

While the cockroach is not known to cause structural damage, they are known to transmit pathogens such as Salmonella, Typhus, and E. Coli. The presence of these pests has been directly linked to asthma in children.

How Can I Get Rid of German Cockroaches?

German cockroaches can live from 100 to 200 days, but are known for their ability to reproduce quickly. They have few natural predators inside of human habitats. Due to these factors as well as the fact that they are known to spread disease, a German Cockroach problem can grow out of hand quite rapidly. To exterminate German Cockroaches, professional treatment is required. Call Hi-Tech Pest Control today for your free inspection!
