Common Roaches

American roaches, also known as Periplaneta americana, are large insects, typically reddish-brown with a yellowish margin on the thorax, reaching up to 3 inches in length. They thrive in warm, moist environments and are commonly found in sewers, basements, and kitchens. Their diet is omnivorous, including decaying organic matter, food scraps, and even book bindings. Control methods involve sanitation, sealing entry points, and using insecticides; interestingly, they are capable of gliding and are among the fastest running insects, capable of reaching speeds up to 3 miles per hour.
