The cockroach is part of an order called Blattodea that contains both cockroaches and termites. Each continent has its own indigenous species. Genetic and molecular evidence shows that cockroaches and termites evolved from a common ancestor. Over 4,000 species of cockroaches are plaguing people around the globe. Some species are found within thick vegetation, rotting wood, leaves, cracks and crevices, under logs, and among debris. They are also found in close proximity to humans in buildings.
The American cockroach, aka Periplaneta Americana, is the largest of common cockroaches and is considered to be a pest. Though not aquatic, it is often called a water bug and also misidentified as a Palmetto bug. They are native to Africa and the Middle East and believed to have been introduced to America from the 17th century AD onward as the result of human commercial activity.
