Species of cockroaches in Australia include German, Australian, Smokey-Brown, American and the rarely encountered oriental. They are generally classified as insects.

The breeding cycle for German cockroach is 17- 35 days with offspring in access of 20,000 per year. The expected life cycle is 14-26 weeks for a female. They are unable to survive in locations away from humans or human activity.

Because cockroaches eat a wide range of food, including rotting garbage, it is believed that they spread a number of diseases to humans including salmonella and gastroenteritis as well as cause allergies.

Cockroaches prefer to live in kitchens and other food preparation areas, so they can feed off food spills. They also like to hide in the cracks in walls, around water heaters and in gardens.

German cockroaches cause most damage while feeding, often resulting in irregular surface erosion on the object. Cockroaches can also cause damage through regurgitation, leaving marks on the object they have been feeding on, or by leaving their egg cases on to objects. In large masses can cause much damage to personal possessions.
