Brown-Banded Cockroach Facts

  • Size: Adult males can grow up to ½ inch, females are shorter and stouter
  • Scientific name: Supella Longipalpa
  • Color: Light-brown with 2 brown bands crossing their bodies
  • Location: With about 55 cockroach species found in the US, the most common include American, Brown-banded, German and Oriental cockroaches.

How to Identify Brown-Banded Cockroaches

At around ½ inch and light brown, adult male brown-banded cockroaches, Supella Longipalpa (Serville) grow fully functional wings and are known to fly when disturbed. Shorter and stouter, adult females sport shorter wings and are not believed to fly. Distinguished by two broad, brown bands crossing their bodies, brown-banded cockroaches prefer warm, dry locations, closer to the ceiling than the floor.

Brown-Banded Cockroach Behavior

As brown-banded cockroaches require less water than German cockroaches, they prefer drier, higher places. Female brown-banded cockroaches lay eggs in capsules, also called purses, that they carry around for roughly thirty hours before attaching them to out-of-the-way hiding places where vertical and horizontal surfaces meet and on walls and ceilings. In their 13 to 45-week life spans, a single female brown-banded cockroach can be responsible for 600 offspring.

Latest Roach Updates
With millions of people suffering from allergy symptoms, roach allergies are not often top of mind when compared to the more common triggers such as dust mites or pollen. A stubborn indoor allergen (a substance that causes an allergic reaction), roaches are difficult to get rid of entirely, even in the cleanliest home. Not just a residential problem, roaches can find their way into offices, restaurants, and in some of the more dangerous cases, schools. If left untreated, they can cause long term health problems and exacerbate already existing conditions such as asthma, the third leading cause of hospitalization among children under the age of 15. Although emphasis should be placed on treating and eliminating live roaches, it is also important to pay close attention to the removal of dead roaches. Over time, the deterioration of their cast skins can create allergens.
