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.GoCanvas allows you to add a Multi-Line Text Field to the body of an email.

    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.
