German cockroach (Blattella germanica)

The German cockroach (Blattella germanica) is a common home parasite. With a length of about 1.1 to 1.6 cm, this species of cockroach is known for its ability to thrive in domestic environments. Its light brown to tan color and two dark stripes down its back are distinguishing characteristics. German cockroaches are nocturnal creatures that prefer warm and humid areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Due to their rapid reproductive rate and resistance to many common insecticides, effective control measures are necessary to prevent infestations.
