Cockroaches transmit diseases, contaminate food, and induce allergies. If someone in your building has them, Guess what? You Have Them Too! Some female cockroaches mate once and are pregnant for the rest of their lives.
Your home is an ideal breeding ground for most species of cockroaches. With plenty of food, warmth, water and nesting sites, they can remain active all year round.
Cockroaches have existed for millions of years and there are thousands of species throughout the world today. Some of the more common species include the German cockroach, the American cockroach, the brown-banded cockroach and the Oriental cockroach. The German cockroach and the American cockroach are the two most common roaches in the New York City area.
HABITAT: They are active mostly at night, and hide in dark crevices during the day. If cockroaches are seen during the day, the population may be high and the available harborage is full, or food and moisture are in short supply resulting in daytime foraging. Cockroaches prefer to stay close to moisture and food and are generally found in the kitchens and bathrooms.
LIFE CYCLE: Cockroaches are highly successful due to the high rate of reproduction. The female carries the egg capsule protruding from the rear of her abdomen until the eggs are ready to hatch. Each egg capsule will contain 30-48 nymphs (young). It takes 28 days from the initial formation of the egg capsule until it hatches. Formation of the next egg capsule usually begins within 2 weeks. Nymphs require as little as 40 days to become a mature adult. Adult cockroaches of most species can live up to one year.
