Many harmful insects crawl in German apartments. This includes the German cockroach. Some also call them cockroaches or Swabian beetles. They are about 13 to 16 millimeters long, amber in color, have six legs and two long antennae.
Although these cockroaches have wings, they can only walk on the ground. During the day they hide between cracks in the walls and furniture. If many cockroaches are visible during the day, this may indicate a larger infestation.
Usually they come out at night looking for food in the kitchen. They secrete attractants that smell bad. Some describe the smell as musty, sweet or like almonds. This can spoil food. Food can also spoiled through the excretion of feces or saliva.
Cockroaches can transmit germs and infectious diseases, cause asthma and allergies. Keeping the rooms clean helps against cockroaches. If you have cockroaches in your apartment, you can also set up sticky traps with attractants. Food baits can be used for worse infestations.
