The American cockroach is also called a "water bug" or the "palmetto bug.” This pest is believed to have originated from Mexico or South America and has worldwide distribution.

Damage: There is rarely any clear evidence of the number of cockroaches inhabiting a room. If a few individuals are observed during the day, this is a strong indication of a large infestation. Large infestations of American cockroaches often give a room a distinctive oily odor. The debris they leave behind, feces, bits of cuticle and hairs can cause allergies and in rare cases lead to asthma.

Breeding: The eggs of cockroaches are held in a hard, brown rectangular case. Females produce egg cases and carry them protruding from the tip of the abdomen for about two days, then they glue the egg cases to surfaces behind cupboards or baseboards in damp areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Immature cockroaches emerge from egg cases in six to eight weeks and require six to 12 months to mature. Adult cockroaches can live up to one year, during which time females produce an average of 150 young.
