Learn more about German Cockroach Infestations and Cockroach Cleaning & Remediation below.
In Southern California, German Cockroaches are more of an ‘interior roach’ and enter an area by being transferred by a person or an item such as boxes, bags or larger items like furniture or appliances. German Roaches are smaller, under an inch, and are light brown with a black stripe down the middle. Under the right conditions, German Roaches will also travel from one area to the next via wall gaps, cracks or utility lines and areas. Appliances are a quite common hiding and harboring place for German Roaches. German Roaches are commonly seen and start in kitchen and bathroom areas and are the focal point of service. German Roaches are seen in darker areas of cabinets, behind or within items, under items, on the counter, or in the open when the lights come on. German Roaches breed the fastest and can quickly reach higher activity levels and become an issue if not addressed properly.
German Roaches range from ½ to 1.5inches. German Roaches are a light brown color, and as they grow, two black ‘racing stripes will become more prominent along the top of them from the head to the end. German roaches do have wings, but they are too small and do not develop enough for flight. This makes their ability to move from place to place extremely limited. German Roaches are considered more of a ‘transfer bug’ that gets ‘taken’ from place to place.
The number one way to stop Los Angeles German Roaches from entering your home is to not bring them in, however, once they do find their way in, they do tend to breed quickly.
