Deploying Bait is our preferred approach to exterminating German Cockroaches.
The bait technique to Control, Eradicate, and Exterminate German Cockroaches results in:
Avoidance of broadcast application of Control Agents. Which results in less pollution and general hazard for people and pets.
And less intrusion to the flow of life.
German Cockroaches are attracted to the bait and are likely to be impacted by it.
The Pest is least likely to be going into new areas to spread the infestation.
German Cockroaches would be exterminated having consumed the bait and may also prove to be a source of secondary poisoning for other members.
This technique is cleaner and safer.
Bait has proven to be a fool-proof method of extermination and it comes in Gel or Paste form and is usually deployed inside cracks, gaps and holes particularly near where German Cockroaches are present or forage.
Expected Results And Outcome Of The Treatment:
It may take up to 5 weeks for all the German Cockroaches to come and forage on the bait and then become affected by it. This Bait will prove fatal to German Cockroaches. Most of the German Cockroaches will expire behind the scenes but some may be found dead near our living spaces. A typical cleaning exercise would be sufficient for the final act.
The adults are about 1/2 to 5/8 inches long and have two dark stripes. Both sexes have wings but do not fly. Males can be distinguished from females by a tapering shape of the abdomen.
German cockroach babies, called nymphs, look like adults except they are smaller, have no wings and are darker in color, sometimes even black. One stripe running down the middle of the back is a prominent marking of the younger German cockroach nymph.
The female German cockroach carries the egg capsule protruding from her rear until the eggs are ready to hatch. The German cockroach is the only house-infesting species that carries the eggs capsule this long. This is what makes it the most presistant cockroach in the United States because they are less likely to be taken by predators.
The adult females can produce 4 to 8 egg capsules in their lifetime. Each capsule contains 30 to 48 eggs. It usually takes 20 to 30 days from the time of initial formation of the first egg capsule until it hatches. There are 6 to 7 nymphal stages, called instars, until they molt into the adult stage. The nymphs have habits as adults. They are mostly active at night and hide in cracks and crevices during the day. Seeing German cockroaches during the day is usually an indication of over population. All cracks and crevices are full or food is in short supply and they are stressed.
German cockroaches usually hide in areas where there is ample food and moisture such as kitchens and other food areas but they can be found in other areas if they are stressed and as a result of a repellant insecticide somewhere else in the building or home. German cockroaches are attracted to fermented foods and beverage residues. If water is present, adults can live about a month without food, but young nymphs will die of starvation within 10 days. Without food or water the adults will die in about 2 weeks.
Cockroaches can survive on very little carbohyderate food. But they must be able to maintain their body moisture. That’s why they live in tight spaces where the air hardly moves.
