Baby Brown Banded Cockroaches

Baby Brown Banded Cockroaches

Baby Brown Banded Cockroaches are immature cockroaches hatched from a brown cockroach egg case laid by an adult cockroach. Unlike other cockroaches, they don’t go through the pupal, larva, and adult stages of life altogether during their existence cycle. They hatch instead from pre-larval, pupal, or adult egg cases laid by an adult cockroach. Their color usually ranges from grey, black, or white when hatched, thus being lighter than adult cockroaches. This may be because they feed on blood and because of their rapid growth rate.

Features of Baby Brown Banded Cockroach

A Brown Banded Cockroach is the last stage in the life cycle of a fully-grown adult cockroach. The last moths do not become fully-developed adults, but they still reproduce as adults in the future. If you see nymphs or egg capsules of any kind, you should take immediate action because these are the first stages of molting. This is also the time when you can spot the remnants of the former queen or male. You should take care to remove or sterilize everything from around the perimeter of the cage as it can pose a threat to your baby cockroaches.


Sixspiny legs are characteristic of baby cockroaches but not of the adult variety. The name “baby” comes from their tendency to grow six spiny legs when they are hatched. This gives them the appearance of being tiny insects. They can walk with their legs still intact. They are a type of mite commonly found in the United States and parts of Western Europe. Nymphs or baby German cockroaches have brownish-colored bodies and are widely green with tan heads. They have red eyes, and they usually are timid. They lay their eggs in small batches called nits, and the females lay as many eggs in a short period as possible.

Baby German Cockroach

These baby German cockroach varieties are commonly referred to as German cockroaches since they have been reported to have been imported from Germany. They were brought to the United States about two to three years ago and then released in various places across the country. There is no evidence that the baby German cockroach has ever been found outside of the United States. However, in Florida alone, there have been reported sightings of the little pests in a garden located in Apopka Springs and the Intracoastal Waterway, both around the Citrus County line.


Typically, the nymphs will molt for a week or two, but it can take longer if highly stressed or depressed. Once they emerge from their molt, the baby cockroaches fly through a sort of tunnel system which starts under the ground until they reach an abandoned box or another receptacle. Here, the adult cockroaches come out to feed on the nymphs and their parents. The larvae then return to the place where the adults reside and begin the whole process again.


Baby brown or baby red roaches also differ in the way they are laid out. The female brown or baby red cockroach lays eggs in a three celled cluster in her lymph sac. The male cockroaches lay eggs in a single egg case called a zit. The eggs will hatch after four to seven days in either case, and the newly hatched nymphs can live up to twenty days without feeding.
