MARCH 31 2022 / PEST AND TERMITE
"They can sense humidity in the air," says Wayne White, Board Certified at American Pest. “When it’s warm and steamy, German cockroach populations explode.”
German cockroaches have a tendency to thrive when heat and humidity are at their worst, which means that properties of all types are at an increased risk of infestation during an extended warm temperature period.
This small, light brown to tan cockroach species typically infests kitchens and bathrooms, but will get comfortable anywhere food, water and shelter are present.
Intolerant of the cold, German cockroaches feed on human food, pet food, toothpaste, soap, glue, and many other typical items found among multi-housing communities. They are most active at night—retreating to their hiding spots during the day—making it easy to miss the size of a significant infestation.
If seen in high numbers during the day, one can expect a troublesome infestation that may take weeks to months to eliminate. Not only are German cockroaches difficult to eradicate, but they also contaminate food with their waste and saliva which contains bacteria that can cause food poisoning, diarrhea, staph infections, and asthma.
They may have been brought into your property inside grocery bags, cardboard boxes, drink cartons and other infested items that have not been inspected
They found harborage near a source of food and water, such as near sinks, behind cabinets, under stoves and refrigerators
Cockroaches often travel between units through wall voids, plumbing, and electrical fixtures
Cluttered, hot and moist locations provide ample conditions for cockroaches to thrive
