To roach experts, How long do roaches live without access to food or water?

    Given they can live a week with their head cut off, probably an entire lifespan.

    If they molt, they eat their old skin, if they poop, they eat that too.

    Biggest problem is 1 roach today, 200 in 6 months, and you may not even know you have them until there are 1000.

    Forever. They eat ANYTHING. Paper, plastic, you name it, they can live on it.

    Not an expert, but they are the most indestructible bugs around.
