Zoology Science Fair Project

Pesticides and Roaches

Pesticides and Roaches | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
We're going to build a model house and use three different types of roaches and three different types of pesticides to see how they interact.


The hypothesis is that most of the insects will adapt to the insect sprays, but they will not survive the effects of the insect bait.

Method & Materials

You will build a model house, use three different types of roaches, and use three different types of pesticides.
You will need a model house, three different types of roaches, and three different types of pesticides.


The results of this experiment showed that the roaches adapted to the insect sprays, but not to the insect bait. The most interesting observation was that the American roaches were the most resilient to the insect sprays.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it shows how different types of roaches react to different types of pesticides.

Also Consider

Variations to consider include using different types of insects and different types of pesticides.
