This cockroach burrows into leaf litter, mulch or loose soil during the day and emerge after dark to feed on vegetation and other plant matter. All that is needed to establish a new population of roaches is a single unmated female.  These roaches never mate because Surinam cockroaches infestations are entirely made up of females. Unfertilized eggs develop into fully functional adult females that are genetic clones of their mothers.
