Cockroaches (German American and Oriental)
Cockroaches are slightly flat nocturnal insects with biting mouthparts and wings, in some species. There are many different species of varied sizes (5-50 mm) and colours (mostly brown to black). These insects favour humid environments and several species are associated with human habitation.
Cockroaches can feed on a range of food sources, mainly of vegetable origin. For this reason they are well known household pests, living on any organic waste material.
