German Cockroach Facts
German cockroaches are the most invasive of the species, hiding away during most the day and mainly coming out at night. They have the highest reproductive potential; females can live up to 250 days and lay anywhere between 4 to 8 eggs during their lifetime. Each egg contains anywhere from 30 to 50 eggs as well. Insecticides don’t penetrate egg sacs either, so once those eggs hatch it’s imperative for us to perform a second treatment before the cockroaches can reach sexual maturity. German cockroaches love heat and humidity, are identified by having 6 legs, and are light brown to tan in color with two black lines on their back just below the head.
Signs You Have a German Cockroach Problem In Henderson
German cockroach infestations can range from mild to severe, with mild infestations being a little harder to notice than severe ones. A good sign that you have problem would be sightings of this species of cockroach, which are noticeable due to two parallel lines going down their back underneath the head. They typically come out at night and scatter rapidly once lights are turned on. Inside cabinets and drawers you may notice what looks like black pepper sprinkled in the corners, that would be German cockroach feces. Another sign activity is prevalent would be finding an egg sac, called their ootheca. This egg sac looks like a ridged capsule, about 1/3rd inch in length, and brown in color. These egg sacs will be found throughout drawers and cabinets. In heavy infestations a foul odor can accommodate the German cockroach.
How We Solve Your German Cockroach Problem In Henderson
Taking care of a German cockroach infestation requires a proper inspection first off. We must determine that this species of cockroach is present before we can begin thinking of the proper treatment options. Once the correct treatment is determined, a thorough spray is applicated in certain hot spot areas. These high traffic areas will be sprayed and in the coming days the German cockroaches will routinely travel though these areas, infecting themselves, and bringing the product back to the nesting sites inside the wall voids. Multiple treatments are needed due to the fact that the egg sacs are resistant to pesticides.
These cockroaches are typically found in dirty homes and will continue to spread filth. They crawl all over anything in drawers and cabinets, therefore, making it easy to spread bacteria. Asthma and rashes are common if you have a German cockroach infestation. The seriousness of this pest mainly comes from their ability to reproduce rapidly, with each egg sac containing anywhere from 30-50 eggs.
German cockroaches usually enter homes on items such as cardboard boxes, grocery bags, drink cartons, etc. A majority of the time this species of cockroach is brought inside the home by someone. It’s always good to double check any item brought inside the home in case it’s carrying a German cockroach or egg capsule.
