Simonsays Posted June 28, 2022 Share Posted June 28, 2022 Hello, In May I found what I believe to be a tawny roach nymph in my bathroom (see nymph photos below). Recently I've found about four adults in my home (only got pictures of 2- see A and B below). I called the local exterminator who told me there was nothing they could do and identified the roach as a wood roach although he thought it looked a little small. I asked about tawny roaches and he hadn't heard of that kind before. Was wondering if there's anything I can do as I unfortunately have a bit of a phobia to these little guys. Not looking to kill them but if I could deter them from my home that would be great! Also I was hoping to confirm the identification of this roach and confirm that it is not a pest species. I did find at least two of these crawling on the outside of my home the other night when I was looking at the side of the house what they flashlight. I do not live in the woods but do have a yard with trees, bushes, and brush. I live in Rhode Island, USA. Thank you so much for your help in advance! https://imgur.com/a/61NTxaC (Adult A) https://imgur.com/a/cDEm8Hx (Adult A) https://imgur.com/a/uuyHZ3L (Adult A) https://imgur.com/a/Gu0Z9sq (nymph?) https://imgur.com/a/mPWY63V (nymph?) https://imgur.com/a/HEr29ge (Adult B ) https://imgur.com/a/2rr8mBW (Adult B; This pic can show the size compared to a pen tip) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
