They're small. Sometimes, they're really small. A German cockroach nymph is small enough to climb through the holes in a wall outlet. This makes them extraordinarily difficult to keep out of man-made structures. They are also exceptional hitchhikers. Even if you have the best pest control defenses in the world, you can still get an infestation of these cockroaches. Protecting a food processing facility from these insects requires experience and education.
When it comes to quality assurance and food safety, the problem of German cockroaches is a pest threat no food processing facility can ignore. Along with being small, German cockroaches are highly mobile. They can climb vertical surfaces and walk across ceilings upside down. They can compact their bodies to squeeze into gaps that are 1/2 their height. And these roaches can chew their way into food packaging. When they do, they can taint food products with 33 kinds of bacteria, 6 parasitic worms, and more than 7 other human pathogens.
