Life Cycle of a Cockroach

lifecycle of a cockroach

The life cycle of a cockroach consists of three stages– egg, nymph and adult. Anywhere from 6-40 eggs are put into a case at a time. The case is either kept safe internally of carried around until the eggs hatch. The next stage is the nymph. The nymphs go through stages of molting, getting larger each time, and changing color. From nymph to adult can take from one month to a few years. Molting stops when the cockroach becomes an adult. Many types of cockroaches will become an adult as they grow a set of wings.
