Roaches…as much as we all hate them, they are part of our world, especially down here in the hot and humid south.  There are many different kinds of roaches, but today we will just go over some general information.

Many species of cockroaches live for a year or longer!  A female roach can produce up to 320 eggs in her lifetime.  She will hide her egg capsules (usually containing 14-18 eggs each) in a safe and protected area.  Young cockroaches typically reach maturity in 160 days.

Cockroaches are notoriously resilient, that combined with a long life cycle, and the potential for each female to yield more than 300 cockroach babies means that a cockroach problem needs to be dealt with quickly and effectively.
