Cockroach gestation begins when a female specimen creates an ooteca eggs capsule, which contains many eggs. Most of the species deposited the case or capsule of eggs in a safe and secure area, where they remain until they hatch. However, the female of some species, such as the German cockroach, load the ooteca attached to her abdomen until it hatches.
Some females of cockroaches show maternal care. The American cockroach nymphs hatch to remain close to the mother for several days. The Diploptera punctata produces protein-rich milk to feed their young. Milk production ends when the female nymphs hatch. The female of the giant cockroach from Madagascar covers their young with his body to protect them.
The different species of cockroaches are four types of reproduction: ovoviviparidad, ovoviviparidad, false, true ovoviviparidad and vivipary. In oviparous reproduction, the ooteca is putting a little time after having been produced. In the false ovoviviparidad, the ooteca is reunited again with the uterus for the rest of the length of the gestation period. In the true ovoviviparidad, the ooteca is not formed, and on the other hand, the eggs remain within the mother's womb. Vivipary, the ooteca is rotated and retracted into the uterus.
