Although the German cockroach can live outside in environments around the world they are typically well- known (especially in London/England) as a indoor insect. They can be identified by their light brown tan and can grow up to 13-16mm. Female German cockroaches only need one mate once for the production of young. After mating, and under normal conditions, they can produce on average, 4 to 6 egg cases during the course of their lives, each egg case they can contain 30-40 eggs. Depending upon the conditions the average cycle from egg to adult can range from around 50 to 220 days but takes usually taking around 100 days. As well as their intense breeding patterns, they can carry diseases such as Salmonella and Lyposis so treating the infestation ASAP is very important. Their main harborage locations tend to be in kitchens, especially behind fridges, washing machines, microwaves and boiler cupboards due to the warm conditions and potential food sources in close range. They can also be found in the bathroom areas as they will tend to use pipework to network their way around a property. If your property is in block of flats then it may be worth corresponding with the your neighbors, as the source of the your infestation may be coming from elsewhere.
