Cockroaches are a very old species. Its predecessors lived between 300 and 350 million years ago, during the Carboniferous period. Cockroaches are an insect paraphyletic category that includes all Blattodea members with the exception of termites. Out of 4,600 cockroach species, only about 30 are connected to human habitats. Some species are notorious for becoming pests.

Behaviour of Cockroaches

Since they spend the majority of their time at night, they often leave their daytime hiding places in the early evening to go in search of food, water, and sex partners. Cockroach activity often peaks in natural settings two to four hours after sunset.

Reproduction Process

  • An egg capsule (otheca) can produce up to 42 cockroaches. One pair of cockroaches can give rise to as many as 20,000 in one year.
  • The egg, nymph, and adult stages are the three developmental stages that make up the cockroach life cycle. Most cockroaches are oviparous, meaning their offspring develop in eggs that are placed outside of the mother’s body. In this species, the mother roach carries her eggs in an ootheca, a pouch that is linked to her abdomen, while she is moving around. This sac could hold anything from 6 to 40 eggs.
