Roach Facts
  • Cockroaches are most common in tropical and subtropical climates.
  • Cockroaches, like all insects, breathe through a system of tubes called tracheae.
  • Cockroaches can survive sterile surgical decapitation for a very long period.
  • Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal and will run away when exposed to light.
  • Cockroaches have an extremely high tolerance to radiation.

Common household roaches:
  • German cockroach
  • American cockroach
  • Oriental cockroach

A female German cockroach carries an egg capsule containing around 40 eggs. She drops the capsule prior to hatching. Development from eggs to adults takes 3-4 months.

Cockroaches live up to a year. The female may produce up to eight egg cases in a lifetime; in favorable conditions, it can produce 300-400 offspring. Other species of cockroach, however, can produce an extremely high number of eggs in a lifetime, but only needs to be impregnated once to be able to lay eggs for the rest of its life.

Cockroaches are among the hardiest insects on the planet. Some species are capable of remaining active for a month without food, or being able to survive on limited resources like the glue from the back of postage stamps. Some can go without air for 45 minutes or slow down their heart rate.

Health Risks of Cockroaches — Why you need to remove cockroaches A 2005 U.S. national study on factors that affect asthma in inner-city children shows that cockroach allergens appear to worsen asthma symptoms more than other known triggers. This study, funded by the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is the first large-scale study to rank asthma triggers according to severity. Additionally, a 2005 research study, sponsored by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), shows a disparity in homeowner knowledge about this link. Only 10% of homeowners in the USA feel that cockroaches are a threat to their family’s health.

Habitat Cockroaches live in a wide range of environments around the world. Pest species of cockroaches adapt readily to a variety of environments, but prefer warm conditions found within buildings. Often when such houses are sprayed with insecticide for the first time, the most noticeable effect is the appearance of large numbers of dead predatory species such as centipedes.
