Cockroach Biology

Cockroaches are insects making up the order Blattodea. With over 3,500 species of cockroach around the world, Canada is home to four major species – the American cockroach, brown-banded cockroach, German cockroach, and oriental cockroach. One of the most common home and business invading pests, cockroaches invade heated structures with readily accessible food, water, and harbourage. Contaminating food and spreading disease when travelling on, or excreting on food preparation areas, this pest is nocturnal making them incredibly difficult to remove on your own.

Did You Know?

An incredibly resilient pest, cockroaches can live up to a week without a head, and can live up to three months without food and a month without water.

Cockroach Behaviour, Diet, Habitat and Life Cycle

The German cockroach is one of the most common household pests worldwide and typically infests kitchens and bathrooms. Smaller cockroach species like the brown-banded cockroach can harbour in smaller spaces like wallpaper, electrical appliances, shower units, and spaces beneath furniture. You should know that the American cockroach is synonymous with infesting sewer systems too.

A nocturnal pest, cockroaches are active at night to find food and water, and sometimes appear in the daytime too. Most cockroaches feast on sweets, meats and starches with some like the American cockroach feeding on decaying matter, leaves and smaller insects too. Ultimately, cockroaches will make your home or business their home if it provides warm, damp and humid spaces to hide.
