Female German cockroach

7081.      This bug is most commonly found in my kitchen either under my coffee pot or most recently in my cupboards. I have also found them under my furniture.. They seem to scatter pretty quickly when the furniture or coffee pot are moved. The two pictures submitted are of the same bug. Thank you. Dowling, Ontario. Canada

Number 7081. This is a female German cockroach, Blattella germanica (Blattodea: Ectobiidae) with her egg case (ootheca), a peridomestic species difficult to bring under complete control. Click here  for some control recommendations.
