Periplaneta americana – Cockroach


Periplaneta americana cockroach

The Periplaneta americana, better known as the American cockroach, is a large cockroach, 38 mm in length, with fully developed reddish brown wings; it flies short distances. It is the largest of the common peridomestic cockroaches. Indoors, they are found in warm areas with high humidity — boiler rooms, basements, sewers or around drains and pipes. They are more common in large commercial buildings, infesting food-storage and preparation areas. The American cockroach has spread throughout the world by commerce. The American cockroach is rarely found in houses, however infestations can occur after heavy rain.
