Betta132 Posted May 20, 2017 Share Posted May 20, 2017 Last night, I saw something green and oval-shaped running across my ceiling. First thought: "well, that looks like a banana roach." Second thought: "that can't be right, those live in South America." So I get my butterfly net, and I catch it, and it is clearly a banana roach. It's little, bright green, and winged, and it has a white edge all the way around it. It's about 2cm long, and it seems healthy. I've looked at all the fruit in the kitchen, and I haven't found any more. I recently bought a pitcher plant online that came from California, but I'm reasonably certain I would have seen a green roach on it while potting it. Do banana roaches ever turn up in Central Texas, or should I keep looking for where it came from? I'm not concerned about an infestation, it's not humid enough here for them to breed well, it's more that I want to catch the rest. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
