Smoky Brown Cockroaches
Thriving in humid climates near water and food, smoky brown cockroaches fly and crawl into the spaces you most likely don’t want them in your residential or commercial property. Although they usually prefer outdoor climates, when the weather turns cold, these insects can gather around the perimeter of your home in block walls, mulched flower beds, gutters, or piles of leaves in search of light and moisture.
How to Identify the Smoky Brown Cockroach
You can spot the smoky brown cockroach by its:
- Size of about 1 1/4 inches
- Wings longer than its body
- Six legs
- Deep mahogany color
- Adult: Shiny exterior with a uniform color, which offers camouflage against predators
- Nymph: White stripe on thorax and tips of antennae
