Roaches have a life cycle consisting of three distinct stages: egg, nymph, and adult. Adults lay eggs and as mentioned earlier, each egg capsule can contain up to 42 baby roaches (nymphs). The eggs can be a light brown to a dark brown in color and they are roughly the same size and shape as a dry Kidney Bean.
It is important to know that they will even infest electronics, computers, televisions, and microwaves. They love coffee pots and their morning coffee. Check items such as these as a possible nesting source. Placing sticky traps around appliances, and other areas will give you a good indication concerning their activity level.
It is interesting to note that the German roach has developed a very elaborate social structure. This involves a common shelter, indications of a social dependence, share information and recognize their offspring and family.
Once you have the American or German Cockroaches you need to know that they do not forage for food outside. They will follow the plumbing or electrical lines to move from one area of your house to another. If you live in an apartment, they will travel from your neighbor’s kitchen or bathroom to your apartment in the same manner, using the plumbing and electrical lines.
The female American Cockroach can live approximately 700 days and the males about 360 days. During her lifespan, she can produce more than 250 offspring and that from just one roach. Imagine an infestation of several thousand although I am sure you would rather not imagine that. Once the egg is laid, it will hatch in about 45 days depending on the temperature and humidity.
The German cockroach egg capsule has about 40 nymphs in each one and they will hatch in less than 30 days. It has a lifespan (both males and females) of about 200 days. During her lifespan, one female German Cockroach will produce more than 200 offspring.
