How Do German Cockroaches Spread So Quickly?

There are many reasons as to why cockroaches spread so quickly to the point of infestation. For one, since the end of DDT usage in the 1950s, cockroaches have developed an immunity to many pesticides. Pest control experts must remain on their toes to combat the ever-growing cockroach problem through constant improvement of cockroach pesticides and control methods. Most roach exterminators today utilize Integrated Pest Management solutions, which is a multifaceted approach to pest elimination. German cockroaches have an extremely short life cycle, growing from egg to adult in as short as 40 days. They have very few natural predators so they can quickly infest an area if unchecked.

How to Eliminate Potential Cockroach Food Sources

Cockroaches are attracted to food and water sources. Their favorite food sources are starches, sugars and any other fatty foods. If food sources are in short supply, they have been known to cannibalize each other. Keep counter tops clean from food particles and dry from excess water. Clean and empty trash cans and waste receptacles. They are very capable of spreading quickly and creating a large population within a matter of weeks. They are difficult to exterminate due to their short life cycle, and only a few eggs can quickly turn into a full-blown infestation f unchecked.

My boyfriend and I just relocated to Las Vegas and cockroaches is not what we wanted to find in our new home. We contacted the guys at Red Rock Pest Control and they are great. They came out immediately,
explained the products they use, and we haven’t seen a roach since.


I can’t say enough about Red Rock. They have been amazing. They had to come back out after our first roach treatment o do a followup which I guess is normal. Absolutely fantastic service. Roaches are the worst but Dustin and Jeff are great.

That makes them older than the dinosaurs and also means they have survived all major extinction events including comet and asteroid strikes as well as the Ice Ages. Arguably, cockroaches are the “toughest” or most resilient creature on the planet. Hopefully this fact will give you a little more respect for the cockroach exterminator that successfully eliminates these nearly indestructible pests.
