where do cockroaches lay eggs

Where Do Cockroaches Lay Their Eggs? Cockroach eggs are deposited in clusters sometimes called ootheca, or egg sacks. The female tends to her eggs and protects them from predators. As the egg’s first chorionic (outer) layer of cells develop, it becomes apparent that the embryo roach is developing inside the egg.

Underneath refrigerators

Cockroaches are known for laying their eggs in dark, damp places. They do so because the eggs are more likely to remain out of sight and therefore safe from predators.

One of the more common places that cockroaches lay eggs is underneath refrigerators. The cool temperatures and darkness make this an ideal place for their eggs to survive.

Inside cracks and crevices in cabinets

Cockroaches lay their eggs in cracks and crevices. They prefer to lay them in places that are warmer and more humid, but that’s not the only thing they look for.

Cockroach eggs can be found inside cabinets and drawers, under sinks, in storage boxes, or even on top of refrigerators. These pests are nocturnal, so you can expect to find them during the night when you’re sleeping! They like to stay hidden during the day when you’re awake.

Under furniture

Cockroaches love to lay eggs in underneath furniture and in corners. Cockroaches are very resilient creatures and can survive for up to a month without food or water. They can go for about two weeks without food and about one month without water.

Cockroaches can lay eggs almost anywhere

Cockroaches can lay eggs almost anywhere. If you find an egg, it’s usually because the cockroach has recently laid it and hasn’t had time to move it away from where you see it.

Cockroaches can also lay eggs in a wide variety of places outside the home, including under rocks and logs; in tree holes; under leaves; in cracks in concrete; and even inside flowerpots!
