HabitatQuite similar to ''Ectobius vittiventris'', another species of Ectobiinae rapidly moving north in Europe, the animals seem to be more or less dependent on human activity, both for their range expansion and for survival. Being of southern origin, it is not surprising that they seem to thrive best in the relatively warm and sheltered environments provided by buildings and parks or gardens in towns. In this respect they will live much closer to humans than what would be normal for the native species of Ectobiinae and can readily be found on the walls of buildings and may even stray inside. Contrary to similar looking cockroaches such as the German cockroach they will however not likely procreate inside and as such need not be considered to be a household pest.
