German cockroaches are one of the most common types of cockroaches found in Ohio. They are also one of the most difficult types of roaches to get rid of, as they are resistant to many different types of insecticides. Here’s what you need to know about these pests and how Lawn Plus Pest Control Services can get rid of them.
They Reproduce Quickly
German cockroaches reproduce quickly, so it’s important to address an infestation as soon as you notice it. A female can lay up to 40 eggs at a time, and the eggs hatch within two weeks. They also have a relatively short lifespan, meaning you get a new generation of cockroaches every 60 days. Therefore, a small population of cockroaches can quickly become a large one, causing chaos in your home.
They Eat Just about Everything
German cockroaches are omnivorous, which means they eat just about everything. This can include pet food, human food, and even toothpaste. They’ve even been known to eat bars of soap from time to time. Nothing is off limits for these pests, so if they have easy access to food, they will be more likely to stay in your home and reproduce.
They Are Hardy & Quick
German cockroaches are not only fast, but they’re also resistant to many different types of insecticides, meaning you may need to use a stronger one to get rid of them. Watching them scurry out of sight can make it difficult to spray and treat them when you see them. That’s why it’s vital you call in the professionals at the first sighting of a cockroach.
