German cockroaches

5947  Hi There,    Found this on a glue trap for mice placed beside my stove… Hope the images are good enough quality. Almost looks like a cockroach nymph? (From what i guess, or some sort of cricket). I live in an old top floor apartment in Montréal. Anyways, it measures approximately 1.25cm for specimen on left and 1cm for right. They appear more red/darker in real life, the camera over exposed them a little. Many thanks for your time and consideration,  A.

These are German cockroaches, Blattella germanica (Blattodea: Ectobiidae), a very common and widespread pest species. See http://tinyurl.com/h3nd9z8 elsewhere on this site for some control recommendations. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
