Where Do Cockroaches Lay Eggs?


The key to kicking cockroaches out is to prevent the next generation from bugging you. To do this, you need to search for where cockroaches lay eggs. But don’t start searching around just yet! At such a small size, you’re going to need some help deciding where to look. American cockroach eggs are reddish-brown and between 8mm to 10mm. German cockroach eggs are light brown or yellow and between 7mm and 10mm. AKA: they’re tiny!

Where Cockroaches Lay Eggs

Cockroaches look for safe spots where their eggs will be protected from other insects. They also need oxygen and prefer warm, moist areas. Common spots include:

  • Crevices
  • Cracks in wall
  • Behind or near appliances
  • Inside pipes
  • Inside piles of food waste
