Smokeybrown Cockroach Identification and Elimination
The Smokeybrown Cockroach is closely
related to the American Cockroach , but is a
uniform shiny, dark-brown or mahogany
color. It is about 1 1/4 to 1 3/8 inches long;
with the wings of both sexes covering the
abdomen.

Young nymphs have white markings on the
thorax and abdomen and on some antennal
segments. Older nymphs are uniformly dark
brown.  

The Smokeybrown Cockroach has a great
tendency to lose moisture through the cuticle
and thus requires water every two to three
days. This pest is most likely found in areas
which are protected, moist, dark, relatively
warm and free from the desiccating effects of
air flow.  

In nature, tree holes and the canopies of palm
trees offer an ideal environment in which this
bug can thrive.

The home equivalent of these conditions
include:
  • Block Walls
  • Flower Beds
  • Decorative Mulched Areas
  • Attics or Soffits with Moisture Problems
  • Damp Basements
  • Dark, Poorly Ventilated Area
Reported in the United States as early as 100 years ago, the Smokeybrown cockroach has become a major pest
in many parts of the United States including Texas. It is most prevalent in moist regions of the country
including Gulf Coast states and southern and eastern portions of Mississippi.  Due to its large size and the
speed at which it moves, this is not one of the most popular visitors in any home.
