German Cockroach
 German cockroaches are by far the most common of cockroaches. In addition to being a nuisance it has been implicated in outbreaks of illness, including the transmission of a variety of pathogenic organisms which results in allergic reactions in many people. The adults are ½ " to 5/8" long and are light brown with two dark brown parallel stripes running down from the head area of the body. They are usually found in kitchens and secondarily in bathrooms, but they can infest in other areas of buildings. They have a preference for warm and humid places and spend more than 75% of their time in crack & crevice harborage areas. The females produce about 6 egg capsules with each containing from 20 to 50 eggs. The developmental time from egg to adult can be about 60-90 days depending on varying temperatures and adults can live for another 6 to 10 months.
