German Cockroaches Print E-mail

german cockroaches Also know as the brown cockroach, the latin name is: Blattella germanica. The German Cockroach is the most common indoor species, especially in multiple-family dwellings. German Cockroaches like to be in warm, humid areas close to food sources. They are usually found in food preparation areas, kitchens, and bathrooms.

Heavy infestations will spread to other parts of the building as well. The German Cockroach is the fastest reproducing common cockroach, a single female and her offspring can produce over 30,000 individuals in a single year. The female carries the ootheca (egg capsule) for most of the 30 day incubation period. The egg capsule is light tan in color, she drops it 1 to 2 days before it hatches. Each egg case carries about 30 young, and the female can produce a new egg case every few weeks. Egg laying is more frequent in warmer weather While many people attempt do it yourself pest control with cockroaches, they can be very difficult to eliminate without professional help.
