Australian Roach

Australian roaches are the most widespread of all outdoor-dwelling roaches in southern Florida. While they are considered a nuisance pest, these roaches rarely infest indoor spaces.  However, just because they are usually found outdoors does not mean they are a harmless pest.

Identifying Australian Cockroaches

Australian roaches range in size from 1 ¼ inch to just under 1 ½ inches long. They are reddish brown with yellow markings on their heads, like many other roach species. The identifying feature that sets them apart from other roaches, however, is the yellow striping that is found on their wings. Australian roaches prefer to nest outdoors, usually seeking out woody places such as firewood piles or under the bark of trees. However, they will occasionally nest indoors.

Seasonality Of Australian Roaches

Like most other roaches, the Australian variety remains active as long as temperatures are warm. With the mild temperatures found in Florida throughout much of the year, this means that these roaches are present all year long.
