Has anyone had a problem with Pallid cockroaches (Pheatalia pallidus)? Are they a good cockroach to have, they are not infestive or anything; a good small feeder cockroach?

I like them alot, but they might be able to become a pest in your home so watch out for that- closely. They are a little fast for a feeder roach, but they are small....

The young are tiny and sturdy and would make a pretty good food for very tiny immature inverts. I was a licensed pest control technician many years ago and I never encountered or heard of Pallid Roaches in homes or buildings. However, they might get into other cultures (could never be as bad as Surinams) and escapees that don't make it into other cultures might survive a while.
