The most common cockroaches in NZ are all introduced species: Gisborne, German and American. NZ also has 15 native cockroaches – mostly found in the garden but they do sometimes wander indoors. Roaches are mostly nocturnal and very adaptable insects. They reproduce quickly, and if left unchecked, can be one of the more difficult pests to eradicate. Without Cockroach eradication some infestations can cause food poisoning, and they may aggravate allergies and respiratory conditions like asthma. Varying in color from light brown to black, the species of cockroach has much to do with the location they are likely to be found.
