THE AUSTRALIAN COCKROACH
The Australian Cockroach is one of the most common large roaches seen here in Southwest Florida. The Australian Cockroach is identified by its bat shaped markings on its pronotum (the area behind the head) , the light markings on the outer edge at the top of the wings, its brown coloring, rounded wing tips, and grows to a length of 1 ¼ inches. This roach is primarily an outdoor pest feeding upon plant and decaying organic matter. If it invades a structure it will feed upon varieties of starchy materials. The female Australian Cockroach can produce an egg capsule containing up to 15 eggs as fast as every 10 days.
