For many years, the Baby German Cockroach was the most common in the United States. Today, however, there are many other kinds of cockroaches with distinct characteristics. There is the Oriental cockroach, the Mediterranean Cockroach, the brown-banded cockroach, the house mouse cockroach, the European Cockroach, the fruit-eating cockroach, the water-maze cockroach, and the house ghost or the bone-eaters. Each has the characteristics that make it a pest that can be controlled effectively by a pest control company.
Features of Baby German Cockroach
Baby German cockroaches are similar to other cockroaches. They have round bodies with soft undersides, are brown, have a series of blackened spots on their bodies, have six legs, and look like miniature adult cockroids. Both fully grown and immature Baby German cockroaches also have soft, flat bodies, two long antennae, and long sets of legs. Although they may appear similar to an adult German cockroach, they are smaller than German cockroaches.
Unlike most other types of cockroaches, German baby cockroaches are not social creatures. They will not network by sharing food, water, or shelter with any other cockroach species. German baby cockroaches will not build nests of their own unless they are forced to do so by another member of their species. A nymph is an egg stage. A spirit will look just like an adult cockroach with its adult shape, but it will not be fully developed. Its fore and hind limbs are short; its body is oval, has two entirely white wings, and ahead with tiny black eyes. The adult German baby cockroach will usually emerge from a slumbering, dark spot on the left side of its box or cave.
The reason that baby German cockroach infestations are more difficult to get rid of compared to other types of cockroach infestations is that the German style is much easier to breed. Cockroaches reproduce best when there is a favorable and ideal environment for them to reproduce in. That environment must provide a precise location for the reproduction process, and it must be something that the German roaches are naturally attracted to.
The natural habitat of this species of German baby cockroach is usually somewhere where wood and cellulose materials are abundant. It is also most often found inside buildings. As the German cockroach can only molt one egg case at a time, if you try to destroy an entire infestation, you would not solve your problem. The best approach to take is to prevent the infestation from occurring in the first place.
Like most cockroaches, German baby cockroaches feed on dead insects. Occasionally, they may also feed on live insects, but those are the exception rather than the norm. Generally, they are attracted to food sources on which they can survive by eating. They are primarily fed on the leftover food particles that have fallen from decomposing vegetation in the wild.
Can I Get Rid Of These Baby German Cockroaches? Yes, you can! But, the issue with German cockroach babies is that they can grow to enormous sizes very quickly. Due to their rapid growth, if you do not control the infestation before it reaches a large extent, the eggs could kill the colony. If left unchecked, the result can be an environmental disaster.
