There are thousands of species of cockroaches. The so-called Germanic variety becomes sexually mature after about 40 days, under ideal development conditions.
A cockroach can form up to 7 egg pockets in its short existence. Reproduction begins with the first moult. The first pouch is laid by the female around 7 to 14 days after fertilization. Therefore, it only takes a few individuals to generate a true cockroach infestation in a short time … a real nightmare !
The female carries the egg pouch inside her body and feeds it during incubation. It also reduces its activity to a minimum during this incubation period. The female absorbs water, the pressure of which she uses, to expel the pouch of eggs.
The young larvae are abandoned near a water point, given that their range of action is limited at this stage. The cockroach mutates up to 6 times in the larval state.
Now that you know more about their mode of reproduction, you will understand that it is impossible to overcome them yourself and that it is important to entrust the task to a cockroach exterminator .
