Cockroaches (Blattaria)

cockroach

Size

Cockroaches have a size ranging from 3 to 20 mm.

Colour

This insect is shiny brownish-orange in colour.

Description

Cockroaches are parasitic insects. They have an elongated shape equipped with antennae and wings but are not able to fly. Some females may reproduce only once and be pregnant for life.

Diet

These insects eat everything: plants and insects. They like warm, humid places such as refrigerator motors, plumbing pipes, etc. Cockroaches can go a month without eating or drinking.

Habitat

Cockroaches leave their habitat in the evening to feed and live in groups because they produce an odorous substance that encourages them to regroup. For this reason, when we find one cockroach, there’s a good chance it isn’t the only one in the area.

Often their colonies are very large.

Consequences / Dangers

Cockroaches can spread up to 33 different types of bacteria and cause allergies and asthma in

children.
