Based on fossil records, cockroaches have remained little changed for 200 million years. There are over 4000 different species of cockroaches worldwide – not all are regarded as pests. Those species, which are now classed as pests originated in tropical climates but have now become cosmopolitan in temperate zones, having been distributed by commercial activities. Common cockroach species
Common Cockroach Species
The cockroach species commonly found in the Bangladesh are:
Oriental cockroach (Blatta orientalis) Males are approximately 25mm long, females approximately 32mm long; shiny and very dark brown, nearly black in appearance, nymphs (immature) may be reddish brown; they are poor climbers on smooth surfaces, which may limit their distribution within a building; they appear to be cold tolerant in that they are often found outside buildings, in drains, gardens, sewers, external brickwork etc, a factor which should be remembered when controlling them.
German cockroach (Blattella germanica) Adult size 13-16mm; the adult is light brown in color with two dark almost parallel longitudinal stripes on their pronotal shield; they are found throughout buildings but show a preference for warm humid areas; they are good climbers, being able to climb vertical glass or tiled surfaces; an infestation of these cockroaches can be quickly established once they have entered any premises.
Brown-banded cockroach (Supella longipalpa) Adult size 11-15mm; this cockroach is small, light brown in color and is often mistaken for the German cockroach; this cockroach needs hot conditions to survive, it prefers 27°C and over but it is becoming more common as a pest in the UK; it is typically found in light switches, electrical appliances, motor housings, etc.
American cockroach (Periplaneta americana) Adult size 34-53mm; the adult is is reddish brown in colour and is fully winged. Male wings extend beyond the tip of the abdomen; female wings do not. There is a pale brown to yellowish band around the edges of the pronotum. This species is not well established in Britain. It is not as cold tolerant as Blatta orientalis and Blattella germanica. Typical infestations in the United Kingdom are port areas, where it is introduced via ships. Sites infested include food premises, greenhouses, zoos, large centrally heated humid environments, etc.
Australian cockroach (Periplaneta australasiae) Adult size 25-35 mm; Adults are reddish brown, fully winged with a yellow to pale brown band around the pronotum and a yellow streak on the outer edge of the base of the front wings. Late instar nymphs have pale yellow markings on the lateral margins of the thorax and abdomen. This species closely resembles Periplaneta americana. Not yet widely established in the United Kingdom, it requires hot, moist conditions to survive. It is found in greenhouses; therefore potted plants may be a source of infestation. Pet shops, particularly those with large numbers of heated fish tanks, can also be a source of infestation for this species.
Egg case (oothecae) development in cockroaches
Oriental cockroach (Blatta orientalis) The female Oriental cockroaches carry the oothecae for about 30 hours, after which time she deposits them, dropping or attaching them near to a food source. Each ootheca contains 16 eggs which hatch in approximately six weeks, but this period may be greatly 23 extended in cool conditions. In this situation the egg case represents a biological time bomb waiting to hatch and continue an infestation.
German cockroach (Blattella germanica) The ootheca, containing 35-40 eggs, is carried by the female until it is within one to two days of hatching. Small 1st instar nymphs emerge from the ootheca and easily infest tiny cracks and crevices in the immediate area.
American cockroach (Periplaneta americana) The female deposits oothecae a few hours or up to 4 days before the 1st instars emerge. The ootheca, containing 10-15 eggs, is dropped or glued to a suitable surface, usually in a pocket of high humidity near a food source.
Australian cockroach (Periplaneta australasiae) The female cockroach deposits the egg case containing around 16 eggs which hatch after a period of approximately 80 days
General Biology and Behaviour
Cockroaches are omnivorous. In addition to conventional foodstuffs, they will feed on a wide range of organic matter including other cockroaches. Their activity peaks during hours of darkness. They exhibit incomplete metamorphosis; the juvenile stages or nymphs resemble the adults. Each cockroach molts several times in its life cycle producing a larger nymph and eventually molting to the adult stage. Some species are fully winged in the adults, others may have reduced wings or wing buds. When wings are present, they are leathery and veined. The females of those cockroaches classed as pests all produce egg cases or oothecae, which contain eggs, which hatch inside the case from which nymphal cockroaches emerge. During the daytime, cockroaches spend most of their time in harborages grouped together. This behavior is influenced by them finding the same suitable harborage. They also produce an aggregation pheromone, which is a chemical messenger to other cockroaches of the same species, who respond by being attracted to the source of the pheromone. As this pheromone is present in cockroach faces, cockroaches will also be attracted to areas previously contaminated by cockroaches. The development of cockroaches
Problems associated with Cockroaches
Cockroaches foul their environment with faeces, regurgitated food and they taint materials with their characteristic smell. The air in infested premises may contain fragments of their exoskeletons and cockroach excrement. Cockroaches also contaminate food directly as they move from filth to food indiscriminately and are therefore implicated in the mechanical transmission of many pathogens, such as those causing food poisoning and wound infections. Because residual allergens can remain as active contaminants for some time following a treatment, a thorough cleaning regime should be carried out afterwards. Cockroaches is not only contaminate foods but also a nuisances, destructive pest too! American cockroach some time use to feed on human hairs and even damages valuable cloths items! is affected by food quality, humidity, temperature, and day length.
