Common on the scrub forest floor in southern India, these roaches pose no threat to human homes. As detritivores, they eat decaying matter amongst the leaf litter and help return nutrients to the soil. Individuals use pheromones to communicate with others in their colony. After mating, females reject other male advances until after they lay their ootheca (egg cases). These insects are long-lived, and nymphs can take two years to reach adulthood and gain their iconic spots.

Don't forget to subscribe to the Bug Box in the future, so you never miss out.
