Woods roaches are outdoor species, but they can be attracted to light and accidentally enter homes. They are strong fliers.
They are commonly found in wooded areas, mulch beds, and gardens. Indoors, they may be found near windows and lights.
Woods roaches do not pose significant threats to humans. They are not known to carry diseases and are generally considered outdoor insects.
Keeping doors and windows well-sealed and using screens can help prevent woods roaches from entering homes. Additionally, outdoor lighting should be managed to reduce their attraction to homes.
