vfox Posted November 18, 2010 Share Posted November 18, 2010 I'm just excited, I've finally found some local (backyard) Parcoblatta pennsylvanica cockroaches. These guys are supposed to live on/in old bits of wood and under bark etc...guess where I found them? Under scrap steel siding from my barn! I was out for about 2 hours digging open stumps and logs in the woods because it's about 54ºF today. I figured, what the heck, I'll give it a shot...although I've never had any luck before. I was about to give up and passed by the siding pile and thought, eh, maybe I'll find some spiders or something. I lift up the first sheet...nothing, second sheet...small spiders and a few ants, third sheet...almost two dozen roaches scurrying away! I was completely taken off guard and clamored for my tube. I picked it up again and grabbed as many as I could before they vanished in the grass. I'm very pleased about this, I've been looking for these guys for a pretty long time. Okay so I'm not 100% certain these are P.pennsylvanica yet but they are certainly a good candidate considering I live near the woods and have never seen a German or American cockroach in any home in my neighborhood.
