Hi!

are these pretty much all over the globe ? I have them in my front yard and garden ... they come out when I water the plants and lawn. Since I've heard they are parthenogenetic I grab a few and tossed them into a roach bin.

Be careful with those.

If they are P. surinamensis, they will require a bit more than being tossed into a roach bin. They are escape artists and culture jumpers. If you don't have them in a lockdown type container, (sealed container, very fine metal mesh or small pinholes for ventilation, no gaps at all) You may just find some in many of your other roaches' bins.
