6886.    These bugs appear every year and get their way into my house only in summer. Which makes me think that’s they aren’t cockroach. They get i some my house starting May-June and dissappear in September or so. If they are cockrouches…why do they appeR only fir 3 months and then dissappear? They also fly sometimes, but rarely. They are on my countertop, my shower etc… My house has a ravine backyard. Toronto, Vaughan Ontario.

Number 6886. This is a cockroach, but it is not one of the commonly encountered peridomestic pest species. I suspect that it is one of the so-called wood cockroaches in the family Ectobiidae, see example number 2 in this image: Click here
