The most common Cockroaches in Vancouver BC are called the German Cockroach. They grow to be ½” – 5/8” when adults and are various colours of brown to dark brown.
German cockroaches can be found all over the world. Each German cockroach can live about 100-200 days.
Commonly found around warm, dark & humid areas that have a food supply nearby. Kitchens (under sinks, behind dishwasher, fridge & stoves) and bathrooms are the most common areas in structures.
Foods they are attracted to include sweet and floury foods & grease.
The German cockroach is the most prolific breeder among all cockroaches. Each egg capsule can contain up to 40 eggs and development from egg to adult can occur in as little as 45 days.
