Nymph of a German cockroach

6655.    Found a couple (maybe 4 of 5) in the kitchen aat different moments of the day in less than a week. Montréal, Quebec. Canada

 

Number 6655.  I cannot be certain because of the mangled condition of the specimen, but it might be a nymph of a German cockroach, Blattella germanica (Blattodea: Ectobiidae), a peridomestic species difficult to bring under complete control. Click here for some control recommendations.
