The German cockroach is found throughout the world in association with humans. They are unable to survive in locations away from humans or human activity. They are the most commonly found cockroaches in the McAllen, Texas area. They are small to medium size (1/8-1/2”) in size. Females drop egg capsules that carry an average of 35-40 cockroaches allowing them to infest quickly. They are usually first noticed in the kitchens and restrooms in the evenings.
