Bugs in Strange Places: The Brown-banded Cockroach
Alpert, Gary; Frye, Matthew
Brown-banded cockroaches look and behave differently than other small cockroaches, such as the German cockroach. Therefore, correct identification of the pest and a thorough inspection of the premises are needed before developing a management plan. Although brown-banded cockroaches are not common in the northeast, they can be introduced on shipped furniture and other goods.
