Behavior

  • Nest in a wide variety of locations within a structure & are very difficult to control & locate.

  • They will forage for food both day & night.
  • They can be associated with disease transmission in hospital setting.

Life Cycle

  • egg, larva, pupa, adult
  • Females mate & procreate in the nest & new colonies can rapidly expand by "budding" and mating within the nest.
  • Colonies can contain multiple queens & several thousand workers.
  • Female produces 350-400 eggs in her lifetime.

Control
