5984 Hi, I’m writing in relation to a dead bug I found in my bedroom that is about 1 inch in size. I can’t tell what it is… Many thanks, Jessica
This appears to be a nymph of an Australian cockroach, Periplaneta australasiae (Blattodea: Blattidae). See http://tinyurl.com/ka4ltgr for details on its life history as well as some control suggestions. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
