Cockroaches Pest Control Services
The life cycle of a cockroach has three stages of incomplete metamorphosis:
(1) egg, (2) nymph and (3) adult.
There is no inactive, non-feeding pupal stage.
Warm, moist environments attracts the cockroaches. They spend the daylight hours in dark, secluded sites under refrigerators, stoves, false bottoms in kitchen cabinets, in the backs of cabinets and in crevices between baseboards and floors or cabinets and walls. They may also be found behind pictures or within electronic equipment. A number of these openings will ultimately lead to voids in the stud walls. The insects leave these sites at night to forage for food and water. The presence of cockroaches during the day may indicate a large population.
There are about 3,000 species of cockroaches in the world of these, the three most common are as follows:
- German cockroach
- American cockroach
- Brownbanded cockroach
