German Roach

The German cockroach (Blattella germanica) is a smallspeciesofcockroachtypically about 1.1 to 1.6cm (0.43 to 0.63 inch) long. In colour it varies from tan to almost black and it has two dark, roughly parallel streaks on thepronotum runninganteroposteriorlyfrom behind the head to the base of the wings. AlthoughBlattella germanicahas wings, it can barely fly at all, though it may glide when disturbed. Of the few species of cockroach that are domestic pests, it probably is the most widely troublesome example. It is very closely related to the Asian cockroach and to the casual observer the 2 appear nearly identical and may be mistaken for each other. However the Asian cockroach is attracted to light and and can fly rather like a moth which the German cockroach cannot.
