Brown-banded Cockroach

Supella longipalpa

Places to watch
Since they need less moisture, they can be found anywhere in the house, especially high on walls, behind pictures, in furniture and closets.

Distinguishing Characteristics
Most prominent in the south. One of the smaller roaches, rarely over 1/2″ long. It is light brown with two light bands running across the base of the wings and abdomen. The female is much broader in the body than the male. The adult male is quick to fly when disturbed.
