German cockroach buggingWhat’s Bugging You? Cockroach (German)

Introduction: The German cockroach is by far the most important and usually the most common of the cockroaches. In addition to being a nuisance, it has been implicated in outbreaks of illness, the transmission of a variety of pathogenic organisms including at least one parasite protozoan, and allergic reactions in many people. This species has worldwide distribution.

Damage: German cockroaches adulterate food or food products with their feces and defensive secretions, physically transport and often harbor pathogenic organisms, may cause severe allergic responses, and in extremely heavy infestations have been reported to bite humans and feed on food residues on the faces of sleeping humans. In addition, some scientists suggest that German cockroach infestations may cause human psychological stress and that the stigma associated with infestations alters human behavior. For example, people with infested houses do less entertaining, and avoid the kitchen at night for fear of encountering a cockroach.

Breeding: The German cockroach has three life stages typical of insects with incomplete metamorphosis: the egg, nymph and adult. German cockroaches breed continuously with many overlapping generations present at any one time. Under ideal conditions, population growth has been shown to be exponential. Actively growing field populations are comprised of 80 percent nymphs and 20 percent adults.

Treatment: Homeowners should keep human and pet food securely sealed. Serious cockroach infestations should be treated by a pest management professional. Our preventative maintenance will keep your home free of cockroaches. If you have a preexisting roach problem, we will continue to treat your home until the pests have been eradicated.
