Where there is one there are many!
Cockroaches have been reported to spread many different finds of bacteria, parasitic worms, and at least seven other kinds of human pathogens. They can pick up germs on the spines of their legs and bodies as they crawl through decaying matter or sewage and then carry these into food or onto food surfaces. Germs that cockroaches eat from decaying matter or sewage are protected while in their bodies and may remain infective for several weeks longer than if they had been exposed to cleaning agents, rinse water, or just sunlight and air. Recent medical studies have shown that cockroach allergens cause many allergic reactions in inner city children; they were even shown to cause asthma in children. These allergens build up in deposits of droppings, secretions, cast skins, and dead bodies of roaches.
Adult German Cockroaches grow to an average length of around 15mm (.59 in).
German Cockroach can be tan to brown to almost black, and has two dark parallel streaks running from the head to the base of the wings.
