German Cockroach Control

The German cockroach (Blattella germanica) is a small species of cockroach, typically about 1.1 to 1.6 cm (0.43 to 0.63 in) long. In colour it varies from tan to almost black, and it has two dark, roughly parallel, streaks on the pronotum running anteroposteriorly from behind the head to the base of the wings. Although B. germanica has wings, it can barely fly, although it may glide when disturbed. Of the few species of cockroach that are domestic pests, it probably is the most widely troublesome example. 

It is very closely related to the Asian cockroach, and to the casual observer, the two appear nearly identical and may be mistaken for each other. However, the Asian cockroach is attracted to light and can fly like a moth, while the German cockroach cannot.

The German cockroach occurs widely in human buildings, but is particularly associated with restaurants, food processing facilities, hotels, and institutional establishments such as nursing homes. In cold climates, they occur only near human dwellings, because they cannot survive severe cold. Though they would soon die in the outdoors on their own, German cockroaches have been found as inquilines (“tenants”) of human buildings as far north as Alert, Nunavut. Similarly, they have been found as far south as southern Patagonia

Cockroaches have gotten a very bad reputation over the years because of how they look and the musty order that they create in large numbers or heavy infestations. They can contaminate food with their dropping or just appear unsightly.

The truth is however that roaches are mostly a beneficial pest when they are outside. 5 out of the 6 roaches found locally in DFW are primarily outside dwelling roaches. There is one roach however that has adapted to live off the waste/trash that humans create or make, and that’s the German Cockroach. When a pest has adapted to live off human these types of pests are called commensal pest, meaning they live off us/humans. Bed bugs would be another great example of a commensal pest.
