Smokybrown Cockroach

Smokybrown Cockroach

The Smokybrown cockroach is usually found in garages, planter boxes, woodpiles, and water-meter boxes. Other common places they can be found are in trees, crawl spaces, and vegetation areas during summer. The adult Smokybrown cockroach is a dark mahogany color, almost black, and is about an 1¼ in length.

The female Smokybrown cockroach only carries her egg capsules for a short time before releasing and attaching them to other surfaces. Each of the egg capsules hatch every 45 days on average and will produce up to 20 young. They also reach their maturity in just under one year. The summertime is when the majority of the adults occur.
