The American cockroach has been observed to exhibit complex social behavior. In this study the effect of deantennation on the dominant-subordinate relationship in the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana, was investigated. Ablation of the antennae of a dominant individual caused a reversal in status to occur with a previously subordinate male assuming the dominant position.
