If one were to poll pest control customers about what they thought was the most disgusting insect, there’s a good chance the American cockroach would come out on top. First of all, it’s large and scary, it’s very fast, and when it proliferate it stinks. Add to this that the American cockroach is one of the few cockroaches that readily flies and you’ve got one obnoxious pest.
American cockroaches live longer and are slower to reproduce than the more common German cockroach. The American cockroach female only produces 16 eggs as compared to the German cockroach which produces 36 eggs. If American cockroaches are left undisturbed, they can build impressive populations.
An American cockroach can survive in places with little food. They are relatively common in storm drain systems, basements, and storage areas. These cockroaches often feed on glues and starches associated with boxes and papers.
