Ah, yes, the cockroach - the bane of homeowners and businesses alike. North America is home to roughly seventy or so species (compared to the 4,000 recoginized around the globe). Cockroaches are well-known indoor pests, typically foudn near food and water sources and in greta numbers. However, they are also native to outdoor spaces as well. Despite having wings, cockroaches are agile, fast runners and can disappear before one has time to deal with them. North American varieties resemble one another to an extent, being red, brown, or black in color and having wings set over their abdomens (both forewings and hindwings are present). Long antenna are seen at the head and short protrusions called cerci can be seen at the end of their abdomens.
