Where do german cockroaches come from

Answering the question where do German cockroaches come from? 

The German roach is easily transported. It comes from the grocery store, suppliers (commercial) or your friends and neighbors. When you buy groceries, they can catch a ride in one of the bags and can be inadvertently introduced into your pantry or your kitchen cabinets.
German cockroaches spend most of their lives hidden and protected. For every cockroach in view in daytime, hundreds can be hidden inside wall and ceiling voids, behind cabinets, inside appliances, and the like. A German cockroach’s favorite location is inside a narrow crevice with its antennae extended out.

German Cockroach Control & Treatment Methods to Try

  1. Remove indoor trash or keep them emptied.
  2. Keep trash dumpsters clean.
  3. Make sure food is not left in sink strainers and frequently run the garbage disposal.
  4. Seal food containers.
  5. Keep dishes clean, no residue of food remaining
