Getting to the Bottom of Your Roach Problem with the Cockroach
The cockroach lifecycle may not be something that you want to think
about, but when you consider it, it may just help you determine how much of a
roach problem you are dealing with in your home. When you consider that seeing
one roach in your home means that there are many more where you can't see them,
the cockroach lifecycle suddenly becomes much more important. Also, when you
think about how adaptable cockroaches are, you can't help be somewhat intrigued
by how these bug form.
The cockroach lifecycle actually has
three developmental stages. These stages are known as the egg, the nymph, and
the adult stages. The lifecycle starts in an egg that is put into a case with
six to 40 eggs at a time. These cases are often hidden away for safe keeping.
Some cockroaches choose to keep their eggs safe internally whilst others still
carry the case around with them until the eggs are ready to hatch. The cockroach
lifecycle gets a bit more exciting when the eggs hatch and the young cockroaches
are very small and known as nymphs. The nymphs must go through several stages of
molting, where their body will be quite soft and white. Each time the molting
process is completed the cockroach will get bigger, change in color, and look
more like an adult cockroach. The nymph stage of the cockroach lifecycle can
take anywhere from a month and a half to several years, depending on the
environment, the type of cockroach, and the prevalence of cockroach
disease and parasites.
When the cockroach reaches its adult size it will not molt again. Many
types of cockroaches will complete their transformation into adulthood with a
pair of wings. Young adults may look almost exactly like a nymph, with the wings
being the one characteristic that easily sets the two apart. When you consider
that a female cockroach can have as many as forty eggs in one case, it is no
surprise that cockroaches can take over your home in very little time.
Knowing the lifecycle will help you identify how many generations of
cockroaches you may be dealing with in your home or work place. Not only should
you know the general cockroach lifecycle, you should also be aware of what type
of cockroach you are dealing with since they are all a bit different. The
differences between the species will help you target the type of cockroach you
are dealing with at every point in the lifecycle, to make extermination much
While the cockroach lifecycle is not all that entertaining, it is
something that those that believe they might be infested really can benefit
from. Also, when you look into the way a cockroach lives, you can get to the
bottom of the problem sooner rather than later. Protecting your home from
cockroaches can be a huge task, but understanding the cockroach lifecycle is a
great start.
