German RoachPest Of The Week: The German Cockroach

Of all the species of cockroach found in the United States, the German cockroach just might be the most common. These roaches measure a little smaller than other cockroach species; about ½ inch in length. They are sometimes confused for Asian cockroaches, because of their similar appearance and presence of wings; but unlike their cockroach cousin, German roaches very rarely fly.

These dark brown colored German roaches enter our homes because they are not very tolerant of the weather. They are also always on the lookout for sources of food, including: sweets, starches, proteins, glue, soap, trash, and even toothpaste. Look for German cockroaches in your kitchens and bathrooms, as they like moisture as well. They will quickly dart away if you turn on the lights, as these roaches prefer the cloak of darkness.

Professional roach control treatments are needed to exterminate serious German cockroach infestations.
