Annotated checklist of the cockroaches of Florida (Dictyoptera: Blattaria: Blattidae, Polyphagidae, Blattellidae, Blaberidae). [55], Like other insects, cockroaches breathe through a system of tubes called tracheae which are attached to openings called spiracles on all body segments. Also insecticidal dusts such as boric acid, silica aerogel and diatomaceous earth can provide additional control.

Research on population and distribution of three medical insects in Yulin urban area of Shaanxi province. The diet of the roach, which includes both plant and animal products, ranges from food, paper, clothing, and books to dead insects, especially bedbugs. Its Latin (scientific) name, on the other hand, derives from the word “Blatta,” which refers to an insect that shuns the light. However, recent genetic evidence strongly suggests that they evolved directly from 'true' cockroaches, and many authors now place them as an "epifamily" of Blattodea. Woo F C, Guo Y Y, 1984. Since not all cockroaches would be molting at the same time, many would be unaffected by an acute burst of radiation, although lingering radioactive fallout would still be harmful. Others are aquatic, living near the surface of water bodies, including bromeliad phytotelmata, and diving to forage for food. The introduction of rats, the spread of Rhodes grass (Chloris gayana) and fires are possible reasons for their scarcity. Influence of starvation and lighting on the movement behavior of the German cockroach (Blattodea: Blattellidae).

[35], There is evidence that a few species of group-living roaches in the genera Melyroidea and Aclavoidea may exhibit a reproductive division of labor, which, if confirmed, would make these the only genuinely eusocial lineage known among roaches, in contrast to the subsocial members of the genus Cryptocercus. Infected B. germanica were erratic in their movements and hyphae of the fungi were found in most parts of the body 4-5 days post-infection. The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature ruled that germanica (published in 1767 as Blatta germanica L.) was to be given precedence over transfuga, whenever the two names were considered to be synonymous (International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1982). Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society, 56(4):506-510. In a study of food-borne pathogens in Ethiopia, Tachbele et al.

Informatore Fitopatologico, 34(7/8):9-14. Yet the cockroaches have wings, they can’t fly. The egg capsule may take more than five hours to lay and is initially bright white in color.

Gallice, Ivana Koubová, Štefan Nagy, Ľubomír Vidlička1 (2020) Neotropical. (Introducción al conocimiento de las "cucarachas" del Uruguay (Blattaria).) Japanese cockroach (Periplaneta japonica) nymphs, which hibernate in cold winters, have survived twelve hours at −5 to −8 °C (23 to 18 °F) in laboratory experiments. B. germanica was designated the type-species of the genus Blattella in the 1980s (International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1982). The behaviors involved have been studied in only a few species, but German cockroaches leave fecal trails with an odor gradient. (Ein Modell der komplexen Schaben-Grossraumbekämpfung.
