The most common places where you can find these German cockroaches are in the bathroom, kitchen, and humid places. They can also be spotted in secluded, dark, and harborage areas like in the cupboards, in wall voids, and cabinets. These roaches have been known to carry out heavy infestations on electrical appliances such as radios and blender bases.


The German Cockroaches are mostly fond of causing invasion on food processing plants, restaurants, nursing homes and hotels, making them a very troubling pest.

They are very difficult to eliminate once they have become established in your home. The reason is that they produce thousands of immature roaches from their egg case. Also, the period between their birth and maturity period is very short. The mother cockroach carries this egg case around during this germination period, instead of dropping it just like other insects will do. Making the egg sac very safe from human eradication and predators.

OC German cockroaches are mostly seen at nighttime. They stay hidden in dark and areas that are secluded during the day. Due to their small sizes, the German cockroach can easily hide, therefore, making it difficult to find. When seen during daytime, it means that there is a large population and immediate action to eliminate them should be taken.

Cockroach Monitoring:  Sticky traps are usually used to detect and monitor basic cockroach issues. The traps should be left in common areas like along your baseboard where they travel from one spot to the next, near the garbage, under sinks, in your cabinets, under and behind the refrigerator, in the bathroom, in corners, etc. Traps are normally used indoors.
