Physical Characteristics

German cockroaches can range in size from about one-eighth of an inch in length when it hatches, to about one-half of an inch as an adult.

Typical Behavior

The adult German cockroaches will have wings but make no mistake, they cannot fly. If they fall, they can flutter their wings just enough to slow down their fall. Their wings will not help them travel around though. They are quick and run quite fast around their environment. Their antennae are reasonably long, just about longer than their body. They serve as powerful sensory devices for evaluating their environment, locating food, and receiving messages from other roaches.

Color and Appearance

The adult German cockroaches have a light-brown color and have two stripes on their pronotum, which is known as the “shield” which sits just behind their head.


German cockroaches typically are found living and breeding indoors. They prefer a warm, humid space with food and water nearby. The most common place to find them will be your bathroom and kitchen, but since they spend at least 80 percent of their time in the wall cracks and voids, infestations are almost always larger than they appear.
