American Roach Nymph (Title changed 11/16/08) - Periplaneta americana
Texas, USA November 15, 2008 Size: about 1-1.5 inches
Yes I am horrible and yes this is in my spare bathroom toilet....BUT this is the 2nd one I have seen in 2 days. I believe it is a wood roach, female but I would like some comfirmation. They have both come from a panel in my ceiling in that bathroom. It has been rainy and getting colder outside. I live in an apartment on the top floor and am hoping these are just coming from the attic/ceiling of the building but it does not have wings so ......HELP PLease I feel better knowing what they are :) haha
