Why is it So Difficult to Control a German Cockroach Infestation?

Posted on by fpadm

There are hundreds of different types of cockroaches in Australia and across the world too. But German cockroaches are some of the most dreaded species. These are small brown cockroaches that have two stripes running down the back of their head. This is one of the commonest pests found in Australian homes and some of the most difficult to get rid of too.

German cockroaches- some facts

  • Their scientific name is Blatella germanica
  • They range in size from around 1.1cm-1.6 cm in length
  • They are largely nocturnal creatures and it’s rare to find them moving around in the daytime
  • They prefer living and hiding in dark and damp places
  • These cockroaches have very flat bodies and this allows them to hide in the narrowest of crevices
  • German cockroaches generally venture out of their hiding places only in search of food and water
  • This species is always found where there is human inhabitation because they find food shelter and water in buildings.
  • These are very fast breeders that can form large colonies within a very short span of time.
  • They can live almost anywhere and also live in electronic gadgets, kitchen appliances, behind dishwashers, spaces in walls, behind cabinets, under carpeting etc.

One of the primary reasons why German cockroach infestations are so common in Sydney is because they are extremely fast breeders compared to most other cockroach species. Their populations reach alarming proportions within a very short period of time. As a matter of fact, the female has a lifespan of only 20 weeks, but in that period of time, she can end up giving birth to almost 35,000 cockroaches.
