Cockroach life cycle


The life cycle of a cockroach depends solely on the type of cockroach. The life cycle starts with an egg engulfed in a capsule called the oothecae, cockroaches experience different stages of development in its life cycle and these stages are called instars as the roaches mature into an adult cockroach. An egg is produced between three to seven days after mating, each oothecae contains about 15 embryos or more, the female roach carries the egg case on the tip of her abdomen for days before dropping it in a hidden location after the female puts its saliva around it to make the eggs adapts to its new location.


The next stage is called the nymph that is an immature cockroach and this emerges between 24 to 38 days, as the nymph keeps growing it experiences a metamorphosis and this is done the shedding of the exoskeleton. This shedding occurs takes place between 10 to 13 times before they become a complete adult.


This is the final stage, at the adult stage the cockroach is fully grown with wings and are already capable of reproduction, the adulthood period is between six months to a year. The lifespan of a cockroach is based on the environment and other conditions. A favourable condition fosters fast growth in the cockroach. Adult cockroach and nymphs can contaminate food directly or through the use of utensils.
