How do German roaches reproduce?

So How do German roaches reproduce?

German cockroach females produce an egg capsule called an ootheca. The ootheca is usually carried by the female until just before it is ready to hatch. This takes about one month. Once hatched, nymphs stay close to their mother for several days and are also carried on her back. She stays with them for up to three weeks while they mature into adults capable of reproducing. Over time, overcrowding may cause mothers to cannibalise their offspring out of stress or hunger demands .

Nymphs live in small groups that remain clustered around their egg case during the first two instars (moults). This behaviour decreases competition among the nymphs and increases survival through reduced cannibalism, higher humidity, and thermal benefits. During the third instar, the nymphs begin to disperse but maintain contact through chemical and tactile cues while they forage .

The German cockroach is a prolific breeder; an adult pairing can produce up to 20 egg cases in a lifetime (which is about 30-40 offspring).

German cockroaches are known for their quick reproductive cycle. They can grow from an egg to being fully developed in about 50-60 days under ideal conditions, with females bearing ootheca that they then carry around until ready pupating away once fertilisation occurs!

What are the signs of a German cockroach infestation?

One of the most common signs of an infestation is seeing groups of nymphs or adults.

Another sign is faecal spotting, which appears as brownish smears on cabinets and shelves, counters, around electric appliances where leaks have occurred, near water faucets (often inside PVC pipes), under refrigerators (on wooden shelving), behind baseboards , in wall voids (where they may be found trapped by sticky fly paper ), etc.

If the infestation has progressed, there will be an increase in egg cases (ootheca) .
