Cockroaches

CockroachesCockroaches usually stay in warm buildings like boiler rooms as they are native to hot countries.  They are distinguished by their very long whip-like antennae, flat oval bodies and rapid, jerky gait.  They are quite large, 20mm to 24mm in length, strong insects and have two pairs of wings but the front pair hides the hind pair whist it is at rest.

 

They eat any sort of food and are most active after dark.  They transport bacteria, contaminate food, utensils and food preparation areas.  You are likely to see them at night, particularly if you switch a light on.  They also leave bits of insects, like legs in the areas where they hide.
