One of the most notorious common cockroaches in the Hornsby household is the German cockroach. They are easily identifiable and largely found in houses, restaurants and hotels. These cockroaches are much bigger than American and Australian cockroaches. The adult can grow about 12 to 15 mm and they’re one foul pest that is a tremendous nuisance to environment and household.
Notorious for their global distribution, German cockroaches are easily identifiable by 2 dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. Adults grow to approximately 12-15mm in length. Females carry 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 annually. As it is most commonly found indoors, it prefers moist, humid conditions and are typically located in kitchens and bathrooms in homes 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 colour, with a light stripe in their backs. German cockroaches will eat anything. They stay close to food and water source. Females reproduce one egg capsule every 3-4 weeks. Each capsule contains 25-45 eggs. Infestations are often found in kitchens, bathrooms, but can inhabit different areas if there is a heavy population or you have 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 seen active during the day, it most likely is due to overcrowding in their hiding places or a shortage of food and water 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 require inch width. German cockroach nymphs are smaller compared to most other cockroaches; hence, they have the ability to conceal themselves in many places and remain protected.
