26 Jul How to get Rid of German Cockroaches
The German cockroach is a small, brownish insect that can be found in warm climates throughout the world. This species has been known to transmit diseases in humans and animals, and it is especially common in South Florida.
The German cockroach, also known as Blattella germanica, is small and brownish-colored. It has two dark longitudinal stripes on its pronotum (the shield behind its head). The female can grow up to 2 cm (0.8 in.) long, while the male grows only 1 cm (0.4 in.).
The German cockroach is an omnivore—it will eat almost anything! They prefer to feed on pet food, starches and sweets such as sugar or grease. In addition, they are attracted to human food sources like pizza boxes and even toothpaste tubes!
They are nocturnal creatures that hide during the day so they can be seen during the night hours when people are sleeping or at work. They typically live inside buildings but may also be found outdoors under patio furniture or near dumpsters where other trash has been left for collection by city workers each week.”
The female German cockroach lays an average of 30 eggs at a time several times each month after mating with a male roach. Eggs hatch within about 2 weeks and nymphs emerge from their egg cases as fully-grown juveniles that look similar to adults but are smaller in size and do not yet have wings (called “nymphs”). These juvenile roaches continue growing until they reach adulthood at about 3 months old when they can begin reproducing themselves by mating with other adult roaches or laying eggs themselves through parthenogenesis (a form of reproduction where offspring develop without fertilization).
– First, you’ll want to make sure that your home is clean and free of clutter. This will prevent the cockroaches from having places to hide and breed.
– Second, you can use baits or traps to catch the cockroaches. Use bait stations around your home or apartment so that the roaches will eat them and die before they can reproduce or spread disease.
