Brown-banded Cockroach Identification and Elimination
Brown-banded Cockroaches are more apt to be found in homes, apartments, hotels, motels, nursing homes
and hospitals than in restaurants, grocery stores and other commercial establishments. They prefer starchy
foods and appear to have lower water requirements than other Cockroaches.
The Brown-banded Cockroach is light gold to
glossy dark brown, and is 1/2 to 5/8 inch
long. It has transverse yellow bands across
the base of the wings and across the their
abdomens, while the females’ wings are
shorter. The yellow bands across the back are
more pronounced on nymphs than on adults.

These Cockroaches are quite active, and the
adults, especially the males, fly rapidly when
disturbed. Both adults and nymphs may
jump to escape danger.

The adult female carries her egg capsule for
only a day or two before gluing it to a
protected surface underneath or inside
furniture, in a closet or on the ceiling in a
darkened room. They can also be found in
televisions and other appliances.

They can occupy drier locations within a
building. Nymphs and adults frequently are
found on ceilings in dark or dimly lit rooms,
behind picture frames, in light switches, in
upper walls of cabinets and closets, or on
undersides of furniture and inside
upholstered furniture.

Because Brown-banded Cockroaches are
found in so many locations they may be
more difficult to control.
