The american cockroach is the largest species of common cockroach, and often considered a pest. In certain regions of the U.S. it is colloquially known as the waterbug, though it is not a true waterbug since it is not aquatic. It is also known as the ship cockroach
The brown-banded cockroach, Supella longipalpa is a small species of cockroach, measuring about 10 to 14 mm long and the most well-known in the genus Supella.
It is tan to light brown and has two light-colored bands across the wings and abdomen, they may sometimes appear to be broken or irregular but are quite noticeable.
The bands may be partly obscured by the wings. The male has wings that cover the abdomen, while the female has wings that do not cover the abdomen completely.
The male appears more slender than the female, the female appears wider.
The German cockroach is a species of small cockroach, typically about 1.1 to 1.6 cm long. In color it varies from tan to almost black, and it has two dark, roughly parallel, streaks on the pronotum running anteroposteriorly from behind the head to the base of the wings.
The German cockroach has three life stages typical of insects with incomplete metamorphosis: the egg, nymph, and adult. The entire life cycle is completed in about 100 days. However, factors such as temperature, nutritional status, and strain differences may influence the time required to complete a life cycle.
Adults grow to a length of 13-16 mm. Wings: While adult German cockroaches have wings, they rarely fly, preferring to run.
The term "German cockroach nest" simply refers to a group of the pests living close together. Cockroaches do not build nests. Instead, once a cockroach finds a spot near food, it releases attractant pheromones that other roaches use to gather in the same place. Cockroaches may lay eggs and tend young there as well.
The oriental cockroach, also known as the waterbug or black beetle, is a large species of cockroach, adult males being 18–29 mm and adult females being 20–27 mm. It is dark brown or black in color and has a glossy body.
Oriental roaches prefer cool, damp locations, so they can also be found in basements and cellars. Oriental cockroaches crawl around service ducts, toilets, bathtubs, sinks, radiators and pipes.
The Oriental cockroach has three developmental stages: egg, nymph, and adult. Eggs are laid in capsules, which the female carries for about 30 hours and then drops onto a protected surface near a food supply. The female does not glue the egg capsule to the surface.
