Cockroaches are common pest found in residential premises, commercial outlets, food preparation outlets, factories and warehouses. The common cockroaches reported in Singapore are Periplaneta americana (American cockroach) and Blattella germanica (German cockroach). American cockroach is chocolate brown in colour and 35-40 mm long while German cockroach (10-15mm) is smaller than American cockroach. German cockroach is brownish yellow in colour with two longitudinal parallel black bands running down their pronotum. The cockroach body is typically oval and flattened dorsal-ventrally. This body shape allows the cockroach to squeeze through narrow cracks and spaces in litter and among rocks. The newly emerged nymphs look like miniature adults, but are wingless.
