Florida Woods Cockroach

Florida Woods Cockroach

The Florida Woods cockroach is typically found in Florida and also in the West Indies. They are extremely large, dark brown in color (almost black), and average 1½ to 1¾ inches in length.

Florida Woods cockroaches are mainly found outdoors in sheltered locations such as firewood, stacked lumber, tree holes, and leaf litter. They have very short wings and thus are not good flyers. These cockroaches have only one generation per year and the adults can survive for several years.
