    Quick Facts About German Cockroaches

    German cockroaches are the most common cockroaches in Canada.

    The German cockroach doesn’t originally come from Germany. It is thought to have originated in Southeast Asia and has spread around the world through shipping.

    German cockroaches reproduce faster than any other cockroaches that infest homes and businesses.

    Despite having wings, German cockroaches can’t fly.

    What Attracts German Cockroaches?

    German cockroaches are attracted to warm and humid areas where they can find food and shelter.

    In the home, they can be found in bathrooms, around sinks, inside appliances, in cabinets and anywhere food debris are accessible.

    Like most cockroaches, German cockroaches can and will eat anything (including other cockroaches), but they prefer sugary, fatty or starchy foods.

    German cockroaches don’t normally move from one building to another. They are typically carried around from one place to the next.

    Should I be Worried About German Cockroaches?

    German cockroaches do pose a threat to human health. They can contaminate food with harmful bacteria and can also exacerbate conditions like allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions.

    In some cases, German cockroaches have been known to transmit a host of harmful diseases such as dysentery, cholera and typhoid fever through microorganisms on their legs.

    While they normally stay away from humans, if the infestation is large enough German cockroaches can sometimes bite people, which can cause skin irritation.

    German cockroaches reproduce quickly and are difficult to eliminate thoroughly.
