The German cockroach is one of the most common types of cockroach. It is light brown in color and is about 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch long. The German cockroach has two dark stripes running down its back. It has a flattened, oval shape with six legs, two antennae, and wings. Its wings are not fully developed, so it does not fly.
The German cockroach is a scavenger and will eat almost anything, including sweets, grease, glue, and garbage. It is primarily nocturnal and prefers dark, moist environments. It is usually found near food sources and in kitchens and bathrooms. It can easily spread from place to place through cracks and crevices, as well as on clothing and other items.
Why are German Cockroaches hard to get rid of?
Getting rid of German Cockroaches can be a difficult and time–consuming process. These roaches are particularly resilient and have a high tolerance for different temperatures and humidity levels. They reproduce quickly (45-50 roaches per egg shack) and in large numbers, so it can be difficult to eliminate the entire population at once. They are also quite adept at hiding in small, hard–to–reach crevices. Additionally, they may be resistant to certain insecticides, making them difficult to eradicate. Finally, they can spread disease and cause allergies, making them particularly problematic in homes and businesses.
