The aim of this study was to examine the midgut enzyme activities in laboratory-reared and wild-caught Periplaneta americana cockroaches. Midgut samples were collected from 2-3 instar and 9-10 instar nymphs and adults of P. americana, and were examined for protease, amylase, lipase and sucrase activities.
