Pest Structural Inspections: German Cockroach (Blattella germanica ) Mobile App

The German cockroach is not only the cause of the largest number of phone calls requesting pest control, but also represents the largest number of control failures of any household pest. It is most successful at infesting human structures and withstanding pest control activity. Pest control applicators will need to double their efforts in analyzing every German cockroach infestation, and should be pre-pared to use more than one technique to bring the infestation under control. The Pest Structural Inspections: German Cockroach (Blattella germanica) mobile app covers: Cockroach Control and Management, Appearance, Life Cycle, Behaviour and Harbourage, Mating, and Foraging.Canvas allows you to add a Multi-Line Text Field to the body of an email.

  • Ico statictext The German cockroach is not only the cause of the largest number of phone calls requesting pest control, but also represents the largest number of control failures of any household pest.
  • Ico statictext Appearance
  • Ico checkbox Adult German cockroaches are 1 cm (1/2 inch) long or slightly longer.
  • Ico checkbox Nymphs are sometimes not recognized as cockroaches; they appear quite different than the adults.
  • Ico checkbox This stripe divides the nymphal markings into two dark, long stripes.
  • Ico statictext Life Cycle
  • Ico statictext Eggs.
  • Ico statictext If the egg case is dropped much more than one day before hatching, the young die.
  • Ico statictext Four capsules will have a full complement of eggs, but subsequent capsules can contain less.
  • Ico statictext Nymphs.
  • Ico statictext The eggs hatch when the nymphs inside create pressure that splits the case and allows the young to escape.
  • Ico statictext Adults.
  • Ico statictext Adult cockroaches emerge from the last nymphal molt fully winged.
  • Ico statictext Behaviour and Harbourage
  • Ico statictext Aggregations of cockroaches live in areas of high humidity and nearby food.
  • Ico statictext Aggregations:
  • Ico statictext Serve as the natural group where nymphs soon to be adults and adults of both sexes remain together, thus facilitating mating.
  • Ico statictext Are maintained in areas with favourable temperatures, humidity, food supply, and protection.
  • Ico statictext Mating.
  • Ico statictext Females do not respond to mating behaviour for more than one week after becoming adults.
  • Ico statictext Proximity for mating is especially important, as males and females have to touch antennae and exchange sex pheromones to initiate mating.
  • Ico statictext Such seclusion means that females with egg capsules feed less frequently and are exposed to pesticides less often.
  • Ico statictext Foraging.
  • Ico statictext The foraging pattern of German cockroaches is much less random than one would expect.
  • Ico statictext As one can imagine, food crumbs often wind up in the same places, that is in wall moldings, corners made by walls, stoves, counters, canisters, etc.
  • Ico statictext The most convenient harbourage, in and around refrigerators, stoves, under sinks, and undisturbed cabinets, provides both protection and food.
  • Ico statictext While there is less food in bath-rooms, food areas are usually nearby or available through holes around plumbing pipes.
  • Ico statictext These pipes provide additional harbourage and areas for population expansion into adjacent rooms or apartments.
