One of the most common house infesting pest cockroach species in Canada for pest control services is the German cockroach, also being one of the most difficult pest cockroach species for pest control services to manage. So why is the German cockroach such a pest? Compared to some other structure infesting pests the German cockroach has a larger number of eggs per capsule and combined with the shortest development period in reaching sexual maturity, German cockroach populations will increase faster then those of other species. In addition these two influences combine to create what is called a high reproductive potential, in entomologists terms, which causes German cockroach infestations much faster.
Threw out the entire time the embryos are developing inside the egg capsule the female German cockroach carries the capsule, which in turn helps the roach eggs avoid dangers and other hazards that could damage the egg if it was isolated or detached before the hatch. With the residual effect being more nymphs (baby cockroach) survive the hatch, thus giving us a greater reproductive potential. German cockroach nymphs are also know for staying close together and close to the female after they hatch causing a greater population density. German cockroach nymphs also respond to aggregation pheromone in correlation with there frass, which can also effect individuals in the colony with elevated aggregation or clumping occurring. So if we take into consideration all 5 of these factors in conjunction with the German cockroaches ability to adapt to environmental and food source changes, gives the German cockroach a very high survival rate which causes faster German cockroach infestations.
