During warm climates they can be found in outdoor areas where trees or plants are, however they are also commonly found in sewers, damp basements, and lower level food storage rooms. The females produce about 10 egg capsules each containing about 15 eggs. The developmental time from egg to adult can be as long as 18 months depending on varying temperatures and once adult they can live another 14 months on average.
