German cockroaches are one of the most common roaches found in apartment houses, restaurants, and hotels. They are a pest because they damage kitchen appliances, contaminate food as well as give off a nasty smell when their population grows. They may cause severe allergic responses and psychological stress in people.
The German cockroach has a shorter development cycle than other species which means an infestation can go from bad to worse very quickly. They are nocturnal which gives them the best survival rate of most pests around the house and active all year round from summer to winter months, and they feed on almost anything around.
German cockroaches are light to medium brown in color and about half an inch long. They have a light stripe on their back, which is visible on the young roaches. Adult cockroaches can live up to a year, and during that time they can produce up to six thousand offspring.
These pests are omnivorous, which means they will eat anything, from food crumbs to toothpaste. German cockroaches also carry bacteria like E-coli and salmonella, so it’s important to get rid of them as soon as possible.
If you think you might have a German cockroach infestation, be sure to contact a Safe Pest Control company right away for identification and treatment. The Safe Pest Control offers free inspection before starting treatment, and we also have a money-back guarantee if the treatment doesn’t work properly.

What attracts German cockroaches?
German cockroaches are attracted to food, water, and shelter. They prefer dark, moist areas where they can hide. If you have a cockroach infestation, you need to find and remove these sources of attraction.
That’s why it’s important to clean up any spills or messes immediately and keep your kitchen and bathroom tidy. Make sure all of your doors and windows close tightly and repair any cracks or gaps in your walls or flooring. You should also seal any openings around pipes or wires entering your home.
How does the Cockroach gel work?
The gel is a pesticide that works to control German cockroaches. It is not a kill-all solution, but it works well when combined with other treatments. The gel needs little inspection so ir can be applied in discreet locations and is consumed by the roaches’ congeners after they have been exposed to it. In other words, the gel will target only the cockroaches present at the time of application and will not harm any other insects.
Apply the gel around the entrances of known cockroach nests so that you can kill them all at once, rather than one by one. This way, you avoid having to deal with these pests over an extended period of time.
