German Cockroach nymph? - Blattella germanica

German Cockroach nymph? - Blattella germanica
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

Size: 1cm
Sorry for not having the best picture. From what ive seen on this site, it bares a striking resemblance to the german cockroach nymph, but want to make sure its not a brown banded or anything else.

This species, which can not survive outdoors, is found in greatest abundance in kitchens. Baiting is very effective in controlling them. Best of luck with your eradication efforts!

Moved from Cockroaches and Termites.

i appreciate your help
theyre really isnt too many of them, i see them mostly one at a time (at night of course) hiding behind little cracks in my cupboards. Thanks for your help John, i feel more confident now in the results of baiting. (ive heard stories where they can survive almost anything!)

Moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

If anyone can answer your question, John Carlson can--and he's more likely to encounter the image here.

cool, Thanks
id really like to know what it is, however i have a guy coming tomorrow to bait around my kitchen so hopefully they wont be around any longer.
