Frequently Asked Questions
How did we get a German cockroach infestation?
German cockroaches are well-known indoor cockroaches with a distribution that is world-wide. Smaller than other types of cockroaches, the pests can hide in small spaces and hitch rides in bags, boxes, and many other infested items that are brought inside the home. In multi-unit apartment buildings, they can easily move between units, using the shared plumbing and pipes as a highway.
What Attracts Them?
One of the most common sources of problems with German cockroaches are used items like furniture and luggage. Pre-owned electronics are also hiding places for the pests, which gravitate towards these warm devices. Additionally, areas where food debris is left around will fulfill the needs that the cockroaches have for food, water, and protection, such as near: garbage and containers, kitchen cabinets, and under sinks.
What are the signs of a German cockroach infestation?
German cockroach droppings may appear as small, dark, “pepper-like” material left on countertops or in drawers. Fecal staining may appear as dark spots or smears:
Along the tops of doors.
Around small cracks and openings into walls.
In the corners of a room.
Since German cockroach females carries their egg case until 1 to 2 days before depositing it, empty egg cases may be found in areas that the females frequent.
German cockroaches are also known to secrete a number of odorous compounds. When populations are present in large numbers, it may be possible to detect a mild, or what some have reported as a “musty” odor.
Are German cockroaches a threat to my health and home?
German cockroaches spread filth in homes, contaminating food and utensils. Pathogens range from bacteria that causes food poisoning and dysentery to allergens that result in rashes and asthma attacks. Recent studies have also indicated that in larger metropolitan areas, the development of asthma in children can be directly linked to the presence of the pest.
These cockroaches lay 40 eggs at a time, which mature in about two months. Because they reproduce rapidly, infestations quickly become severe. German cockroaches are hardy and fast and have few natural predators inside human habitats. For these reasons, their populations tend to grow rapidly and can be hard to get rid of, often requiring professional treatment.
Is there a difference between German and American cockroaches?
- German cockroaches are one the most common species of cockroaches in Louisiana.
- Theses roaches measure 13 to 16 mm long and are pale brown in color, with two dark-brown stripes behind the head.
- These insects typically live up to 12 months and produce more eggs than other species.
