The Smokybrown Roach is one of the larger varieties of roaches found in America and worldwide. Unfortunately, these smokybrowns love to come inside, and that is where they become a troublesome pest. You see, they prefer warm climates. But if they find themselves in an area that is a bit colder than they like, these roaches will scurry on into your home or place of business.
Getting rid of smokybrown roaches can prove to be a challenge. So, before we discuss extermination, let’s learn a bit more about the smokybrown roach.
The smokybrown roach is a close relative to the American cockroach. However, you can quickly tell the difference between the two. The smokybrown is dark brown and shiny, whereas the American has a light-rimmed pattern on the thorax. They have strong wings that extend beyond the length of their bodies, and these roaches are attracted to light.
Length: 1 1/4 – 1 3/8 inches
Lifespan: 2 years
The smokybrown will make its way into your home when searching for food and water late in the day or in the early morning hours. They are detritivores and feed off organic matter. Smokybrowns will dine on human food scraps, dead insects, plant materials, and fecal matter. They are scavengers that need water every 2 to 3 days for survival. Unlike other roach types, they are prone to dehydration.
The smokybrown can be seen all around homes and buildings. They will nest in planter boxes, firewood piles, tree holes, under mulch, around soffits and eaves, and any other area where there is adequate moisture. And they can get in almost anywhere they want.
From egg to the adult stage is an average of 215 days but can last up to 716 days. In a female’s lifetime, she can lay an average of 10 cases, each containing 20 eggs. She will attach the case to a protected surface until they hatch and enter the world.
