Roaches of Michigan...


Recommended Posts

Do we have any that aren't pests?

I just found what I think may be a roach underneath a piece of astro turf.

It can't be more than 1/3 of an inch long.

You might have found a roach in michigan?

Some nonpest species native to Michigan:

Parcoblatta uhleriana and Parcoblatta lata. Probably other Parcoblatta, Ischnoptera deropeltiformis and Cryptocercus (found in Ohio but maybe not as far north as Michigan). All of these would normally be found in or under large rotting logs.
