Important Considerations:

  • German cockroaches are the most common type of cockroach.
  • Because of their short reproductive cycle, six generations of cockroaches can be produced in a single year.
  • German cockroaches can fit through holes as small as ⅜ of an inch in diameter.
  • A german cockroach will feed on nearly everything including toothpaste, soap, and glue.


Where to Find Them on Your Property?

Unfortunately, german cockroaches are frequently found living inside homes in bathrooms of kitchens. They live in moist, warm areas that are close to a food source. They are often found under kitchen and bathroom sinks, in kitchen cabinets, near garbage containers, or inside luggage.
