Killing hundreds of German roaches is easy when dealing with large infestations. Experienced exterminators know that killing 95% of the German Roach population is the easy part. The last 5% is where the work really begins. Unless a total kill is achieved even the remaining 1% is capable of reproducing enough offspring in a few short weeks to re-establish a large infestation.

If a home has an infestation of 1000 cockroaches and the breakdown is 500 nymphs (babies), 250 adult females, and 250 adult males and the exterminator only achieves a 90% kill, which would leave 100 roaches, roughly 50 nymphs, 25 adult males and 25 adult females. Each of the surviving adult females can lay one egg with 40 offspring roughly every 30 days or so. With only a 90% kill rate you can end up with 1000 new cockroaches plus the original 100 in just a matter of weeks. To successfully eliminate most infestations the exterminator has to kill at least 98% of the infestation on the first or second service and follow up regularly.

Even a 100% kill requires at least one follow-up service because most insecticides will not penetrate egg capsules and stop new nymphs hatching after the service.
