German Roach

When you see one German cockroach, there are typically hundreds unseen. This roach has reproduction down to a science. Their numbers can quickly escalate out of control. Infestation requires more than one service to control. They can be found anywhere, inside microwaves, clocks, telephones, stoves, pictures, crevices, stereos, cabinets, closets, toys, etc.

These roaches are often found in residential and commercial buildings near food and water sources. German roaches are small and light brown to dark brown in color. It isn’t common for them to live outdoors but if it is warm enough, they can. They are well-known for being hitchhikers, migrating in or on anything they can. They are not picky when it comes to food and will even eat glue, toothpaste, and soap.

You will often be able to see these roaches, especially if the infestation is large. They leave pepper-like droppings in the areas they frequent, as well as fecal staining in more hidden areas. Some people can detect a musty smell with large infestations.
Roaches don’t bite, so they can’t hurt you in this way, but they can spread human pathogens, diseases, and bacteria. They will pick up germs on their legs and transfer them to everything they touch. If they get into your food, they will contaminate it. Their feces is also known to cause allergic reactions, especially in children and people with asthma.
German roach infestations are known for becoming severe fast, so it is best to call a pest control service immediately after finding evidence of this pest. They will be able to do an inspection and find where the roaches are in your home. If the infestation is small, only one treatment may be necessary. If it is large, you may need a treatment plan that includes multiple sprayings and other pest control methods.

To prevent roaches in your home, remove as much moisture as possible and keep the inside and outside clean. If you take away their food and water sources, they will not be able to survive in your home. You can also seal up any small cracks in your windows, doors, and walls to help prevent infestation.
