German cockroaches are the most common type of cockroach, measuring about 1/2 to an inch long. They are light brown and have two dark stripes on their head. They are most easily identified by their small size and their tendency to hide in cracks and crevices.
The best way to get rid of German cockroaches is to eliminate their food sources by thoroughly cleaning your kitchen and bathrooms. You can also use commercial cockroach bait or spray. If you have a severe infestation, you may need to call a professional exterminator.
