American Cockroach (PALMETTO BUG)
This insect originated in Africa, not America and spread through out the world via old world shipping networks.
- The “granddaddy” of the most common roaches found in our area. Can grow up to 2 1/8 inches long!
- Mostly a problem in commercial buildings, but will occasionally infest homes, especially row or townhouses where insects can move from home to home
- Likes high temperatures and favors places like steam tunnels
- The egg capsule can contain up to 16 eggs
Fun Fact: These insects will also “fly” or more accurately glide when disturbed. Most species of roaches where named for enemies of their home countries. A Frenchman named the German Roach!
