Adult German cockroaches are about 17 mm long and light brown except for the shield behind the head marked with two dark stripes, which run lengthwise on the body. The nymphs are wingless and nearly black with a single light stripe running down the middle of the back. Egg capsules are light tan. Mainly found in kitchens or anywhere where there is food preparations and water supplies. Cockroaches are one of the most adaptable and successful insects.
They can infest any type of structure from homes to commercial establishments. They can be brought in with purchased merchandise and can travel freely within a building along wires and pipes. While they are mostly a nuisance pest, they are capable of carrying disease pathogens as well as causing allergic reactions or asthma attacks.
Over the counter insecticides are not always effective against cockroaches. As soon as the effects of the insecticide wear off perhaps due to temperature or simply the surface on which the insecticide has been applied being cleaned, surviving cockroaches will breed once more.
