Surinam Cockroaches

Surinam Cockroaches  The amazing fact about Surinam cockroaches is that they burrow and can cause lots of damage to your vegetation. They love tropic humid locations and can survive in moist dark areas on your property, including beneath objects and in corners. They reproduce parthenogenesis and this makes it possible for the females to reproduce even without male fertilizations. Unlike most other cockroaches that lay eggs, the Surinam female cockroach have the eggs hatch internally and it can have at least 3 egg cases.

The female adult roaches have black heads and light colored wings. Even though the cockroaches are not common indoors, they can infest gardens and greenhouses and become real annoyances to homeowners. They might not give you any troubles because they do not like human habitat, but they could end up messing your garden when you have an infestation. They love the turf and dirt outside and they can be destructive pests; you might want to consider getting pest experts to help you save your garden when you suspect you have an infestation. The pest experts will inspect the garden and they make treatment recommendations to save your plants from the destructive cockroaches.

The shiny brown cockroaches are often confused with oriental cockroaches, but even though they appear similar, the rough abdomen of the Surinam cockroach is the distinguishing feature. They also have wings that are light green or olive tinted. Their mouthparts can bite, but they are not known to bite humans. The females cannot fly, but the males can fly short distances.

Preventing infestation

Maintaining a clean yard should be what you begin to do with these outdoor cockroaches. It might not be possible to save the entire garden, but you can at least try to prevent burrowing that come too near your buildings.

It would be a great idea to seal tight paved areas and ensure that they are free of cracks. Cracks in your basement cement offer perfect nesting areas for the cockroaches especially when they have soil and vegetation so have them sealed out too. If you have any wood that is permanently placed outside, do regular checks under because rotting will attract the cockroaches. Check your plant leaves regularly for bite marks that can tell you of an existing infestation in your garden.
