German Cockroaches 101

German cockroaches are dark in color, almost black, when they are young. However, when they develop, they become a light brown tannish color with two horizontal black stripes. They also grow wings but would prefer running rather than flying. At most, these pests grow to be about 1/2″-5/8″ long. German cockroaches are found all over the world and get into peoples homes by being transferred. Typically, these roaches are in boxes or bags and get carried over from one house to the next. If it is in an apartment type of building, they crawl through sewage systems and pipes to get to the next home. These roaches can eat nearly everything, from the crumbs on the floor to the toothpaste left in your bathroom sink.

Signs of an Infestation

German cockroaches carry various germs and diseases that could be harmful to you and your family. When they crawl through sewage pipes, these germs attach to their legs, and when they get into your food, that’s exactly where the germs go. If you have an infestation, there are a few things to look out for. The first is droppings and egg capsules. These will both be found in areas with low traffic and hard to reach areas such as in cabinets or in the corner of a drawer. The droppings are dark in color and are very similar to the looks of pepper. When you have a culmination of droppings, egg capsules, and hundreds of roaches infesting your home, they will also produce an odor. This will be a foul musty type of smell.
