Cockroaches are known to lay eggs in areas that are convenient for them, particularly close to a food source so that they can easily access food. The kitchen is a common spot for cockroaches to lay eggs because it is usually a source of food for them. Cockroaches are omnivores, which means they can eat a variety of things, including things that humans do not consider as food, such as soap, hairs, and even their own species!

These areas where cockroaches lay eggs are where the nymphs will grow into fully adult cockroaches due to the abundance of food that is available in homes. This can lead to an infestation of cockroaches in various parts of the house, including the basement, kitchen, garage, and even the bathroom. Cockroaches are known to be stealthy and will often hide under debris and clutter to avoid detection. They are attracted to grease and moisture and will do everything in their power to access these sources.
Kitchens are particularly attractive to cockroaches because they provide an abundance of grease, water, and food. This is why cockroaches are commonly found in electrical appliances such as refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, and even under microwaves in extreme cases. Cockroaches are so flexible that they can thrive in very little space, which is why they are often found in dishwashers and on dishes. Besides that, they can also be found in clothes. For this reason, it is important that you wash your clothes on the highest setting.
The life cycle of a cockroach consists of three main stages: the egg, nymph, and adult. The egg stage begins when a cockroach lays an egg sack called an ootheca, which can contain up to 50 eggs. The nymph stage starts after the eggs hatch and the nymphs, which resemble translucent elongated worms, worm their way out of the egg sack. The nymphs will moult at least six times before reaching adulthood. After the final moult, the cockroach reaches adulthood and begins to reproduce. The average life span of a cockroach is about 100 days, after which the cycle will repeat itself.
